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.
