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 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.
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.
Three PNNL fish researchers recently published a video journal article on how to properly implant miniature acoustic tags in juvenile Pacific lamprey and American eel and how the tags could benefit migration.
