Commercialized technology wins awards.
Each year, the FLC gives up to 30 "excellence in technology transfer" awards to government laboratory teams. Pacific Northwest has received 44 of the awards since 1984. This year's three are for:
* Plasma enhanced melter -- converts waste into useful products.
* Superplastic forming process -- provides a cost-effective technology for forming aluminum sheet materials.
* Molecular science software suite -- provides chemists access to high-performance, massively parallel computers. The software solves complex environmental problems in the atmosphere, aquatic systems and subterranean environment. It also searches for new pharmaceuticals and improves agricultural productivity.
