A new Co-Optima report describes an assessment of 400 biofuel-derived samples and identifies the top ten candidates for blending with petroleum fuel to improve boosted spark ignition engine efficiency.
The inner Salish Sea’s future response to climate change, while significant, is predicted to be less severe than that of the open ocean based on parameters like algal blooms, ocean acidification, and annual occurrences of hypoxia.
PNNL’s Dan Gaspar and John Holladay were part of the Co-Optima leadership team honored by DOE’s Vehicle Technologies Office. The award recognized groundbreaking work to synergistically improve fuels and engines to maximize fuel economy.
PNNL and collaborator LanzaTech were honored April 24 for their partnership in the development and commercialization of an ethanol-based synthetic paraffinic jet fuel that can use any sustainable ethanol as a feedstock.
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.
A study co-led by PNNL and reviewed in Science investigates how nanomaterials—both ancient and modern—cycle through the Earth’s air, water, and land, and calls for a better understanding of how they affect the environment and human health.
The U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission, U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, and PNNL partnered to complete—in record time—an environmental impact statement for the nation’s first small modular nuclear reactor, to be sited at Clinch River, Tenn.
Steven Ghan, a climate researcher at Pacific Northwest National Laboratory for more than 25 years, has been elected to the newest class of Fellows of the American Geophysical Union. His efforts transformed the ability for models to simulat
