Breaking Down Biodegradable: UF Scientist Creates Guide to Bioplastics

University of Florida Institute of Food and Agricultural Sciences

“Bioplastics—a better option for the environment?” is a compilation of information about bioplastics. These alternative plastics have become more popular, and as it turns out, they’re effectively still the same as petroleum-based plastic, according to Dr. McGuire’s document.

Tethered Chem Combos Could Revolutionize Artificial Photosynthesis

Brookhaven National Laboratory

Scientists at the U.S. Department of Energy’s Brookhaven National Laboratory have doubled the efficiency of a chemical combo that captures light and splits water molecules so the building blocks can be used to produce hydrogen fuel. Their study, selected as an American Chemical Society “Editors’ Choice” that will be featured on the cover* of the Journal of Physical Chemistry C

Newswise: Protein Data Bank at Rutgers Awarded $34.5 Million Grant

Protein Data Bank at Rutgers Awarded $34.5 Million Grant

Rutgers University-New Brunswick

The RCSB Protein Data Bank headquartered at Rutgers University–New Brunswick has been awarded $34.5 million in grants over five years from three U.S. government agencies. The funding – an approximately 5 percent increase over the previous five-year period – covers ongoing operations and will expand the reach of the world’s only open-access, digital data resource for the 3D biomolecular structures of life.

Argonne lends a hand toward climate and weather understanding

Argonne National Laboratory

The Atmospheric Radiation Measurement (ARM) User Facility, supported by the DOE Office of Science, has been providing researchers the data to understand the complex global climate picture for 27 years. The first ARM facility, the Southern Great Plains (SGP) site, was opened in 1992, and is operated by Argonne. Today, there are six stationary and mobile ARM facilities located or transported globally and managed and operated by nine DOE National Laboratories.

To rid electric grid of carbon, shore up green energy support

Cornell University

Cornell and Northwestern University engineers, along with a federal economist, have created an energy model that helps to remove carbon-generated power from the U.S. electric grid – replacing it with a greener, financially feasible wind, solar and hydro energy system.
