LanzaTech is revolutionizing the way the world thinks about waste carbon by treating it as an opportunity instead of a liability.

LanzaTech is turning our global carbon crisis into a feedstock opportunity with the potential to displace 30% of crude oil use today and reduce global CO2 emissions by 10%.

LanzaTech’s carbon recycling technology is like retrofitting a brewery onto an emission source like a steel mill, but instead of using sugars and yeast to make beer, pollution is converted by bacteria to fuels and chemicals!

Imagine a day when your plane is powered by recycled GHG emissions, when your yoga pants started life as pollution from a steel mill. This future is possible using LanzaTech technology. The magnitude of our fossil habit today sees us consume 50M barrels/day for transport and emit 40giga tones of CO2/year!

Imagine if you could take those emissions and convert them to fuels and chemicals, cleaning our air and keeping fossils in the ground in one carbon smart step! That is disruptive! We need an abundant affordable feedstock to displace the fossil resources we use and we need technologies that are able to economically convert waste carbon rich resources to valuable products.

LanzaTech can turn our 40gt emissions problem into a feedstock, displacing the 50M barrels/day habit. In this case 2 wrongs do make a right!
