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.
Nitrogen oxides, also known as NOx, form when fossil fuels burn at high temperatures. When emitted from industrial sources such as coal power plants, these pollutants react with other compounds to produce harmful smog.
The inner Salish Sea’s future response to climate change, while significant, is predicted to be less severe than that of the open ocean based on parameters like algal blooms, ocean acidification, and annual occurrences of hypoxia.
Editors of the journal Emission Control Science and Technology deemed “Coating Distribution in a Commercial SCR Filter” Best Paper in 2018. The authors include PNNL's Mark Stewart, Carl Justin Kamp, Feng Gao, Yilin Wang, and Mark Engelhard.
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.
A study co-led by PNNL and reviewed in Science investigates how nanomaterials—both ancient and modern—cycle through the Earth’s air, water, and land, and calls for a better understanding of how they affect the environment and human health.
PNNL’s Johannes Lercher was one of 148 researchers recognized at the annual conference of the National Academy of Inventors, held April 10-11, 2019 in Houston, Texas. Lercher recently achieved NAI fellow status, a highly selective honor.
