Featured Stories

A new study combines modeling and laboratory experiments to assess uranium release under flow conditions over a time period long enough to evaluate transport behavior of uranium in sediment samples collected from the Hanford Site.
A JBEI/JGI/EMSL collaboration has identified microbial species whose enzymes actively deconstruct biomass from switchgrass, a leading potential fuel crop.
The American Chemical Society has recognized EMSL Senior Research Scientist Kim Hixson with its Withycombe-Charalambous Graduate Student Symposium Award for her research using multi-omics to bioengineer biomass plants to enhance the production of biochemicals and biofuels. A doctoral candidate at Washington State University in Pullman, Hixson presented her research at the 2014 ACS Spring Meeting in Dallas last March.
An international team of scientists working at EMSL determined lithium-ion battery fading is related to electron-rich regions forming in the electrodes. Their findings could lead to longer lasting materials for rechargeable batteries.
