LabNotes -- Research highlights from Pacific Northwest National Laboratory

ith its prestigious International Energy Project of the Year in late October for designing and implementing a multi-million dollar energy efficiency program at the Gostomel Glass Plant in Ukraine.

Together with its partners - the Ukrainian Energy Efficiency Center and the Industrial Real Estate - PNNL helped identify upgrades and secure funding for more than $4.5 million in energy efficiency improvements. For example, Gostomel now uses recovered heat waste to provide space heat required in administrative and production buildings. Energy upgrades implemented to date have resulted in a 20 to 53 percent rate of return on capital investments. More upgrades are planned.

PNNL has worked with Gostomel since 1996 to design and implement a comprehensive energy strategy through the Industrial Energy Efficiency Program, sponsored by the Department of Energy and the Agency for International Development.

Remote learning passes grade - A collaboratory toolkit originally designed for scientists is proving a useful tool at Columbia University. The EMSL Toolkit, named after the Environmental Molecular Sciences Laboratory where it was created, will be the foundation for a three-year project to create an information technology environment that enhances student learning and provides new teaching tools for professors.

The universitys first use of the toolkit will be in a biomedical engineering course. Students can conduct experiments remotely and share data with students in other courses or buildings by using the toolkits features.

The toolkits flexible architecture will allow students and professors to tailor it to specific courses or research and teaching needs.

The toolkit was designed to enable collaborative scientific research at EMSL, a Department of Energy user facility managed by Pacific Northwest National Laboratory.
