Three PNNL scientists selected for membership in the Washington State Academy of Sciences.
Release Date: 7/21/2014
PNNL scientists will present research on carbon sequestration at shale gas sites, water needs for energy production and climate-induced changes in microbes at the 2013 American Geophysical Union Fall Meeting, Dec. 9-13.

Battelle researchers are injecting 1,000 tons of carbon dioxide one-half mile below ground to see if the gas can be stored safely and permanently in ancient basalt flows, thereby reducing greenhouse gas emissions to the atmosphere.
Release Date: 7/26/2013
New findings show how these Shewanella bacteria use three proteins to breathe the iron in this mineral much like people breathe oxygen. In doing so, they produce an electric current, enticing scientists to study them as possible biological batteries.
