A PNNL study has shown the nation’s wastewater resource recovery facilities could generate revenue by converting sludge into biofuel—while significantly reducing disposal costs—using an in-house-developed technology.
Scott Chambers creates layered structures of thin metal oxide films and studies their properties, creating materials not found in nature. He will soon move his instrumentation and research to the new Energy Sciences Center.
Bojana Ginovska leads a physical biosciences research team headed for PNNL's new Energy Sciences Center. She uses the transformative power of molecular catalysis and enzymes to explore scientific principles.
With quantum chemistry, researchers led by PNNL computational scientist Simone Raugei are discovering how enzymes such as nitrogenase serve as natural catalysts that efficiently break apart molecular bonds to control energy and matter.
