Five PNNL technologies were recently awarded six R&D 100 honors. The R&D 100 Awards, now in its 58th year, recognize pioneers in science and technology from industry, the federal government, and academia.
PNNL and the U.S. Forest Service used a combination of data, models, analytical techniques and software to evaluate forest restoration impacts on the environment, while also assessing the economics of resulting biomass.
At PNNL, subsurface science inhabits two separate but interlocking worlds. One looks at basic science, the other at applied science and engineering. Both are funded by the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE).
PNNL will provide technical support to finalists in the Incubate stage and to Grand Prize Winners following the Pitch contest stage of the Fish Protection Prize competition, which is now accepting submissions.
PNNL’s autonomous fish body double, Sensor Fish, and the miniature version, Sensor Fish Mini, were used to evaluate a special screen. Researchers found the screen provides safe downstream passage for fish at irrigation structures.
The Soil Science Society of America presents Nik Qafoku with the 2019 Jackson Award for contributions in soil chemistry and mineralogy—ranging from agricultural fertilizer efficiency in Albania to soil contaminant transport at Hanford.
