Burping bacteria: Identifying Arctic microbes that produce greenhouse gases

ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. — As greenhouse gases bubble up across the rapidly thawing Arctic, Sandia National Laboratories researchers are trying to identify other trace gases from soil microbes that could shed some light on what is occurring biologically in melting permafrost in the Arctic. Sandia bioengineer Chuck Smallwood and his team recently spent five days collecting […]

Blowing bubbles to catch carbon dioxide

Sandia, UNM develop bio-inspired liquid membrane that could make clean coal a reality ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. – Sandia National Laboratories and the University of New Mexico (UNM) have created a powerful new way to capture carbon dioxide from coal- and gas-fired electricity plants with a bubble-like membrane that harnesses the power of nature to reduce CO2 […]

Carbon sequestration research continues at Sandia Labs under Energy Department funds

ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. — Sandia researchers are sharing a four-year, $12 million Department of Energy research contract on the long-term geologic sequestration of carbon, considered a key element in reducing greenhouse gas emissions. The contract from the department’s Office of Science funds research by the Center for Frontiers of Subsurface Energy Security (CFSES), a joint carbon […]
