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 developing catalysts that efficiently make fuels from alternate feedstocks, such as biomass, and can store electrical energy in chemical bonds. The researchers also are creating catalysts that can increase vehicle fuel efficiency—while at the same time—cut 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.
