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.
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.
Researchers have come up with a new method for creating synthetic “colored” nanodiamonds, a step on the path to realization of quantum computing, which promises to solve problems far beyond the abilities of current supercomputers.
A recent study pinpointed the reaction front where lithium (Li) dendrites can come into contact with cathode materials. It also detailed the Li propagation pathway and reaction steps that lead to cathode failure.
