Lead Institution: Pacific Northwest National Laboratory
Principal Investigator: Feng Gao
To help meet DOE goals of enabling more fuel-efficient vehicle engine technologies, for the past ~15 years we have been carrying out research programs funded by DOE/Office of Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy (EERE)/Vehicle Technologies Office...
Lead Institution: Pacific Northwest National Laboratory
Principal Investigator: Robert Dagle
The overall objective of this study is to further investigate our recent catalyst innovation enabling the selective, single-step conversion of bio-derived ethanol to 1- and 2-butene (linear butenes). We intend to continue to improve the technology...
Lead Institution: Pacific Northwest National Laboratory
Principal Investigator: Kevin Rosso
Understanding aquatic chemistry, the natural cycling and fractionation of elements, and energy flow in soils almost always involves, by necessity, attention to the governing influence of electron transfer processes. Interaction of aqueous Fe(II)...
Lead Institution: Pacific Northwest National Laboratory
Principal Investigator: Vijayakumar Murugesan
The proposed research will advance fundamental knowledge about novel battery materials and address critical needs for predictive understanding of multivalent ion based energy storage systems. The work is part of Joint Center for Energy Storage...
Lead Institution: Pacific Northwest National Laboratory
Principal Investigator: Daniel Schreiber
A multitude of extreme and harsh conditions exist simultaneously within nuclear reactors, including irradiation, high temperatures, stress, and corrosive conditions that act together to degrade material performance. Reliable material performance is...

Lead Institution: Pacific Northwest National Laboratory
Principal Investigator: Kevin Rosso
Fe(III)-oxide nanominerals are ubiquitous primary sorbents of organic carbon, organic acid exudates, and toxic metals in terrestrial, aquatic, and subsurface ecosystems. In soil ecosystems, particularly in the rhizosphere, this co-association has...
