Story tips from the Department of Energy's Oak Ridge National Laboratory February 2003

the authors of two recently released books. In the past, environmental impacts of new roads were often considered too late in the road siting and construction process. Now, however, with highly detailed geographic information systems and computer modeling readily available, decisions can be made that minimize the effects of new roads or at least accurately reflect impacts to the environment. The books, "Road Ecology" and "Ecological Modeling for Resource Management," are about taking the long view and doing a better job of ensuring that ecological effects are fully understood and considered when building new roads or managing ecological resources.

ENERGY -- Cleaner, more efficient gas turbines . . .

Researchers at Oak Ridge National Laboratory are working to develop and evaluate the use of fiber-reinforced ceramic matrix composite combustor liners as a replacement material for metallic liners to improve operating performance of natural-gas-fired industrial turbines. Several long-term engine tests have shown that the use of such liners results in increased power output, improved thermal efficiency and reduced emissions. The development and use of such advanced materials supports the U.S. Department of Energy's goals of increasing energy efficiency and reducing pollution.
