DOE SCIENCE NEWS BY TOPIC: Environmental Sciences
DOE research seeks to understand basic chemical, physical, and biological processes of the earthís atmosphere, land, and oceans and how these processes may be affected by energy production and use, primarily the emission of carbon dioxide from fossil fuel combustion. Understanding global climate change and the ability to predict climate over decades or centuries will enable the development of science-based solutions to reduce and minimize the impacts of climate change and better plan for the nationís future energy needs.

Catalytic gold nanoclusters promise rich chemical yields

With scientists from Carnegie Mellon University, researchers at the Department of Energy's Oak Ridge National Laboratory have found a catalyst containing exactly 25 gold atoms that catalyzes the conversion of various molecules, including the transformation of poisonous carbon monoxide into harmless carbon dioxide, a reaction that may find application in devices near gas flues or wood-burning stoves.
