Chicago Business Features Argonne Woman in Nuclear Physics

Chicago Business has the scoop about Kawtar Hafidi, an Argonne National Laboratory nuclear physicist who just snagged the Association for Women in Science's 2011 Innovator Award for her research in the field of the color of quarks. Hafidi is one of many women in science who's changing the equation to accomplish the Department's mission. At Argonne, she leads their Women in Science and Technology (WIST) program, providing mentorship and resources for women in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) at Argonne.

Capturing Fugitives to Reduce DOE’s GHG Emissions

Experts are hunting down fugitive carbon emissions from across 20 Energy Department laboratories, sites and program offices — and they’ve already prevented the release of more than 600,000 metric tons of CO2 equivalent since 2009 -- equal to taking 140,000 cars off the road for a year.
