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.
The Ocean Observing Prize is a competitive incentive program to help inventors advance new concepts for marine energy technologies that can power ocean observing systems, particularly those that inform us about hurricane formation.
PNNL deployed two research buoys in waters off the West Coast for the first time in deep water, supporting a DOE and Bureau of Ocean Energy Management effort to gather measurements that support offshore wind locations and technnologies.
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.
Their consistency and predictability makes tidal energy attractive, not only as a source of electricity but, potentially, as a mechanism to provide reliability and resilience to regional or local power grids.
New technique galvanizes iron-based nanoparticles to create an exceptional catalyst. PNNL researchers describe a new technique that produces metal nanoparticles supported on solid iron oxide, in one step, at near room temperature.
To help spur economic development and assist in the battle against COVID-19, PNNL is making available its entire portfolio of patented technologies on a research trial basis—at no cost—through the end of 2020.
