Resource Description: 

Great study from Rizan et al (2021) estimating 'the carbon footprint and financial cost of decontaminating (steam sterilization) and packaging reusable surgical instruments. The study indicates how the burden might be reduced, enabling surgeons to drive action towards net-zero-carbon surgery'.
