Transformations: Future Challenges for Catalytic Vehicle Emission Control, Industrial Catalyst Developer at National Lab, Why Bio-oil Turns to Gunk

(September 2014)

Molecular Road Rage
Transformations is produced by the Institute for Integrated Catalysis at Pacific Northwest National Laboratory.

In the latest edition of the Institute for Integrated Catalysis' Transformations, catalysis scientist Chuck Peden describes past, present, and future research on abatement of harmful compounds in vehicles and other sources. Alongside the many successes are new challenges for scientists developing catalytic emission control applications. Also, meet Hai-Ying Chen, a catalysis developer at Johnson Matthey, who recently completed a 9-week fellowship at Pacific Northwest National Laboratory—a great example of bringing industry and a national lab together to work on clean energy.

Transformations also contains the Institute for Integrated Catalysis's  (IIC's) latest video, "Why Bio-oil Turns to Gunk," highlighting recent research by scientists at Pacific Northwest National Laboratory uncovering some of the forces that thwart biofuel production. It features PNNL scientist Robert Weber. View the video here.
