CE Voices: PNNL’s Chemical Transformations Initiative

By Mary Page Bailey |

This edition of CE Voices discusses Pacific Northwest National Laboratory’s (PNNL) Chemical Transformations Initiative, which is an ambitious project to investigate electrochemical routes that could favorably treat overlooked waste streams, yielding valuable fuel and chemical feedstocks. This work involves the evaluation of decades’ worth of theoretical work on reactor engineering, catalysis and electrochemistry to identify the most promising paths forward to make the most of stranded carbons in biomass sources, such as sewage, food waste and wood chips.
