An ecological laboratory is a setting in which ecosystems and ecological processes are studied. The focus at CAPP is on creating eco-friendly laboratory equipment. An important question in this regard is, thus, what happens to old models of pipettes when they are no longer in use.
Made of various materials, including plastic, metal, rubber, and silicone, it is also important to note how these materials impact the environment after utilization.
At CAPP, the ecological lab is defined as a setting in which the recycling of used equipment is a primary focus.

To further promote the concept of an ecological lab, CAPP has created the ecopipette, a single-channel pipette that is environmentally safe. Both the packaging and components of the ecopipette are fully biodegradable and recyclable.
CAPP also offers the ecotrade program to support the establishment of an ecological lab. Through this program, old pipettes of any brand and condition can be traded in for new ecopipettes, and a discount is provided for each pipette traded in.
