Sandia researcher Amanda Kohler holds a sample of the bacteria her team used to produce LigM, an enzyme that breaks down molecules derived from lignin, the plant waste left over from biofuel production. . This recent discovery could make it possible for biofuel producers to turn the previously unused lignin into useful products, such as renewable plastics, fabrics, nylon and adhesives, ultimately unlocking the potential of this biofuel waste and making biofuels cost competitive with petroleum.

Sandia Labs Materials Physicist Paul Clem holds a sample of nanoparticle coated glass. Thanks to a collaboration between Sandia and New Mexico-based small business IR Dynamics, researchers are turning nano-size particles that reflect infrared radiation, or heat, into window films for houses, offices and also cars. . Some materials are reflective, like aluminum foil, and reflect light and heat. Other materials are generally transparent to light, like glass and plastic. A few rare materials can be both depending on their temperature. Vanadium dioxide is one such material. Called ""thermochromic,"" it changes its optical transmission with temperature. At cooler temperatures it is transparent to infrared light.

Biofuels from bacteria Sandia has teamed up with HelioBioSys Inc., a small business that found that growing a group of cyanobacteria single-celled, algae-like organisms together can produce high quantities of sugar just right for making biofuels. In a project supported by the Department of Energys Small Business Vouchers program, Sandia is helping the company investigate the feasibility of farming the cyanobacteria on a large scale.
