Verizon recently announced a partnership that will make Pacific Northwest National Laboratory the U.S. Department of Energy’s first national laboratory with Verizon 5G ultra wideband wireless technology.
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 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.
Pumped-storage hydropower offers the most cost-effective storage option for shifting large volumes of energy. A PNNL-led team wrote a report comparing cost and performance factors for 10 storage technologies.
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.
Researchers apply numerical simulations to understand more about a sturdy material and how its basic structure responds to and resists radiation. The outcomes could help guide development of the resilient materials of the future.
