PNNL is one of America's premier environmental research organizations, addressing
global climate change, pollution prevention, environmental health and safety,
environmental cleanup, and natural resource management. Whether it's discovering
contamination-eating microbes, creating "designer molecules" that
sponge toxic metals out of water, using chemistry to transform contaminants
into safe byproducts, or tracking the effects of smog, our scientists are
developing technologies and management strategies to restore, protect, and
sustain the environment.
PNNL develops and delivers new technologies that increase the effectiveness
of environmental cleanup projects worldwide, including remediation of waste
accumulated from years of nuclear weapons production. PNNL’s expertise
in risk assessment also helps to develop environmental policy and decision-making
based on analysis of health and ecological impacts.
