The Marine and Coastal Research Laboratory (MCRL), part of PNNL, in Sequim, Washington, is the U.S. Department of Energy’s only marine research facility. It has a rich history and expanding research scope.
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.
As COVID-19 was limiting in-person contact, halting travel, and creating additional barriers, researchers at PNNL were working to find solutions on how they could still get work done while establishing new safety protocols.
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.
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.
