DOE awards supercomputing time to research biofuels, climate change
Aside from the biofuels, one of the projects that caught our eye is, "Understanding the Ultimate Battery Chemistry: Rechargeable Lithium/Air." It looks like the folks at Oak Ridge National Laboratory will be using the supercomputers to design and actually build a working prototype battery that has 10 times the energy density of today's lithium-ion packs. For a recap on lithium-air batteries, check out this study we highlighted earlier this year.
