Join the 2023 International Freezer Challenge

The UGA Green Labs program invites all UGA research labs to participate in the 2023 International Laboratory Freezer Challenge.

By participating in this global challenge, researchers can decrease their energy consumption, learn better cold storage management techniques, increase the security of their samples and win prizes.

Through the support of UGA Utility and Energy Management, the lab that takes the most action will win a free high-efficiency, ultra-low freezer (a value of $15,000). All labs that register for the Freezer Challenge will be eligible for a free filter and coil cleaning training, and the first 30 labs to sign up will be given a free freezer defrost kit. All participants are also invited to enjoy an end-of-semester pizza party.

The deadline to register is July 1.
