Argonne works with marine industry on new fuelJuly 30, 2015

Argonne has collaborated with Bombardier Recreational Products and the National Marine Manufacturers Association to demonstrate the effectiveness of a fuel blend with 16 percent butane. This blend would incorporate more biofuels into marine fuel without the issues caused by increasing levels of ethanol, which can cause difficulties in marine engines at high concentrations.

Argonne analysis shows increased carbon intensity from Canadian oil sandsJune 25, 2015

Argonne National Laboratory this week released a study that shows gasoline and diesel refined from Canadian oil sands have a higher carbon impact than fuels derived from conventional domestic crude sources.

Land management practices to become important as biofuels use growsMay 21, 2015

The handling of agricultural crop residues appears to have a large impact on soil's ability to retain carbon, making land management practices increasingly important, especially under a scenario where cellulosic materials become more heavily used as a feedstock for ethanol production, according to a study led by researchers at Argonne.

New sensor array changes the data collection gameMarch 5, 2015

Researchers at Argonne have developed a platform that outfits researchers with a next-generation data collection experience.

Argonne/EPA system captures mercury from air in gold shopsDecember 22, 2014

To decrease the accumulation of mercury in the environment, Argonne, in coordination with the Environmental Protection Agency, created a prototype mercury capture system.
