New material traps gases from nuclear fuel better and uses less energy than currently available options

A new porous material called CC3 effectively traps radioactive krypton and xenon gases by breathing enough to let the gases in but not out. Published in Nature Materials, this multi-institutional research shows how CC3 can help recycle useful/remove hazardous elements from the nuclear fuel cycle.

MARES Program Elevates the Value of Coastal Ecosystems to Resource Managers

The MARES project created a series of science –based tools that integrate the different environmental and economic benefits provided by coastal resources. Resource managers will use the project’s models as a new process for managing coastal marine environments.

Human Dimensions of Climate Change

Advancing the political ecology approach, this multi-sited ethnography explores the climates of change along the Latino Pacific. As various interest groups interact, global patterns for decision-making and fisheries management emerged.

Silicon sponge improves lithium-ion battery performance

The lithium-ion batteries that power our laptops and electric vehicles could store more energy and run longer on a single charge with the help of a sponge-like silicon material. PNNL researchers developed the material to replace the graphite traditional used in one of the battery's electrodes.

Predicting Atmospheric Particle Population's Weight Gain

Even atmospheric particles gain weight. The culprit? Carbon-containing compounds called secondary organic aerosols. This is important because atmospheric particles influence clouds and are important in understanding the forces that shape climate change.
