Pacific Northwest Staff Win National Awards For Transferring Research To Industry

RICHLAND, Wash. -- Sixteen staff members working with three technologies developed at Pacific Northwest National Laboratory have won 1998 Awards for Excellence in Technology Transfer from the Federal Laboratory Consortium. The FLC gives up to 30 of the highly sought-after awards each year to teams of federal lab employees for their success in transferring their research to private industry. Pacific Northwest received the awards for transferring and commercializing an advanced soil remediation technology and two innovative software products.

Theresa Bergsman, Janet Roberts, Rick Brouns and Doug McKinley transferred the Six-Phase Soil Heating technology that was developed for the Department of Energy as a faster, cheaper way to remediate contaminated soils. The winning team recognized the marketability of SPSH as an enhancement to a proven, commercially accepted technology for removing volatile organic contaminants from soils. In May 1997, the team formed a limited liability corporation called Current Environmental Solutions, owned jointly by Pacific Northwest's operator, Battelle, and TerraVac Corp. of Irvine, Calif. CES and TerraVac collaborate on projects, creating an incentive for both companies to provide the most cost-effective approach for clients.

Walter Hensley, David McKinnon, Mark Panisko and former Pacific Northwest staff Rodney Savard and Phil Pulver developed and transferred Nuclide NavigatorTM, a PC-based software tool for retrieving, displaying and managing large quantities of nuclear data, to EG&G ORTEC, Oak Ridge, Tenn. The software contains a unique, comprehensive on-line collection of gamma-, alpha- and beta-ray information. Nuclide Navigator's unique "one-stop-shopping" feature for nuclear isotope information simplifies and furthers worldwide nuclear research--from pharmaceutical and medical applications to chemistry, nuclear weapons verification and nuclear power plant construction and operation.
