PNNL and Argonne researchers developed and tested a chemical process that successfully captures radioactive byproducts from used nuclear fuel so they could be sent to advanced reactors for destruction while also producing electrical power.
When two powerful earthquakes rocked southern California earlier this month, officials’ attention focused, understandably, on safety. How many people were injured? Were buildings up to code? How good are we at predicting earthquakes?
PNNL will lead two new projects to advance resilient distribution systems and partner on three additional demonstrations aimed at validating new approaches and technologies to make the aging grid more resilient and secure.
