PNNL researchers are contributing expertise and hydrothermal liquefaction technology to a project that intercepts harmful algal blooms from water, treats the water, and concentrates algae for transformation to biocrude.
PNNL researchers developed two web-based tools to assess and mitigate cyberthreats to utilities—inside and outside their firewalls. Both are low cost and can be used by control room operators who are not cybersecurity experts.
PNNL researchers established an Internet of Things Common Operating Environment (IoTCOE) laboratory to explore the risks associated with IoT connectivity to the internet, the energy grid and other critical infrastructures.
The Facility Cybersecurity toolkit, developed by PNNL, is designed for federal facilities to help implement the presidential executive order on cybersecurity, but it is also available for commercial facilities without charge.
Pacific Northwest National Laboratory researchers used machine learning to explore the largest water clusters database, identifying—with the most accurate neural network—important information about this life-essential molecule.
A cadre of physical scientists, engineers and computing experts at Pacific Northwest National Laboratory is poised to participate in the launch of three new DOE Office of Science-sponsored quantum information science research centers.
A 2011 earthquake and tsunami in Japan that knocked out a nuclear power plant helped inspire PNNL computational scientists looking for clues of future nuclear reactor mishaps by tracking radioactive iodine.
