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.
A team of researchers from 10 national laboratories and eight universities is conducting hydraulic shearing tests to explore the potential for geothermal energy at the Sanford Underground Research Facility (SURF).
PNNL teamed with academia and industry to develop a novel zero-emission methane pyrolysis process that produces both hydrogen and high-value carbon solids suitable for an array of manufacturing applications.
As he prepares to enter PNNL's Energy Sciences Center later this year, Vijayakumar 'Vijay' Murugesan is among DOE leaders exploring solutions to design and build transformative materials for batteries of the future.
PNNL led a multi-institutional effort to design a highly active and more durable catalyst made from cobalt, which sets the foundation for fuel cells to power transportation, stationary and backup power, and more.
