A collaborative team of scientists from PNNL and the Great Lakes Bioenergy Research Center studied nutrient turnover in the gardens of leaf-cutter ants using #metabolomic and #metaproteomic techniques at the +Environmental Molecular Sciences Laboratory (EMSL) at PNNL. The team’s findings could improve the process to convert #biomass to #biofuels and other advanced bioproducts. Read more at http://1.usa.gov/1zpYicN.

Biofuel consumption cannot be a priority, our current consumption level skews better judgement of resource allocation for development of future technologies.

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 – which has 10 times the energy storage capacity of graphite – to replace the graphite traditional used in one of the battery's electrodes.

Scientists trained their sights on soot to understand its undesirable effects on the #Arctic environment. Using global climate model simulations, they evaluated soot's effects in Northern China and the Arctic against measurements over the region. PNNL scientists and a University of Michigan collaborator found key model parameters that correctly spot soot buildup and melt-away in a complex seasonal and latitudinal dependence swing. Their study will help the climate modeling community better understand soot's great influence on regional and global #ClimateChange. Read more at http://bit.ly/arcticsoot.

Inventor and researcher Nikola #Tesla would have been 158 years old today. #DidYouKnow that Tesla invented, predicted or contributed to development of hundreds of technologies that play big parts in our daily lives -- like the remote control, neon and fluorescent lights, wireless transmission, computers, smartphones, laser beams, x-rays, robotics and alternating current, the basis of our present-day electrical system?
