  Consistent improvement in the quality factors of SRF cavities at medium surface fields of about 70 mT represents a direct cost savings factor for the proposed Project X CW linac and other SRF accelerator projects based on CW operation. Current state-of-the-art in SRF does not provide processing recipes to maximize the Q0 at those fields since a complete understanding of the mechanisms governing the quality factor at non-negligible surface fields is not yet developed. In this contribution we present results of the FNAL effort in both scientific understanding and practical improvements and discuss the directions we are pursuing for future research.
