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.
In recognition of Nuclear Science Week on Oct. 19-23, Pacific Northwest National Laboratory reflects on more than half a century of advancing nuclear science for the nation’s energy, environment, and security frontiers.
Radiation from natural sources in the environment can limit the performance of superconducting quantum bits, known as qubits. The discovery has implications for quantum computing and for the search for dark matter.
A multi-institution research team found how the protein environment surrounding some enzymes can alter the direction of a cellular reaction, as well as its rate—up to six orders of magnitude—in a phenomenon referred to as catalytic bias.
