Work to protect the marine environment continues in Sequim, just under a new name as the Marine and Coastal Research Laboratory. Here in November 2016, researchers George Bonheyo, left, and Robert Jeters with Pacific Northwest National Laboratory apply an aggregator during a demonstration in a freezer laboratory in Sequim to show how the product bunches oil together in icy conditions. Bonheyo, PNNL senior research scientist for the laboratory and a research professor of biotechnology for Washington State University – Pullman, said it acts like a wick so that it can burn the oil more efficiently than chemicals.
