Title: A Catalyst for Change

PNNL’s catalysis research is serving as a catalyst for changing how our nation will secure a strong, clean energy future. Senior Physical Chemist Johannes Lercher leads an award-winning team that is dmore »eveloping catalysts that efficiently make fuels from alternate feedstocks, such as biomass, and can store electrical energy in chemical bonds. The researchers are also creating catalysts that can increase vehicle fuel efficiency, while simultaneously cutting emissions. About 80 percent of all man-made materials — from plastics to pharmaceuticals — are made using catalysts. Through PNNL’s Institute for Integrated Catalysis, Johannes and colleagues study how to speed the catalysis reaction process for manufacturers, which ultimately cuts costs and production time.« less
