US Department of Energy National Science Bowl


Back to EurekAlert! A Service of the American Association for the Advancement of Science

 

DOE SCIENCE NEWS BY TOPIC: Environmental Sciences
DOE research seeks to understand basic chemical, physical, and biological processes of the earth’s 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 nation’s future energy needs.

Solving the biomass puzzle

Biomass holds great promise as a petroleum replacement, but unlocking its true potential remains a puzzle. A group of researchers at Iowa State University and the US Department of Energy's Ames Laboratory hope to develop the pieces of that puzzle to create a clearer picture of what takes place within a plant and how that applies to its downstream uses as biomass.
