Carbon Recycling

Turning our carbon crisis into a feedstock opportunity

Identification

LanzaTech'solution is challenging preconceived notions of waste carbon utilization and demonstrating the potential of industrial carbon waste as a feedstock for new products.

To address the global carbon crisis, this solution turns carbon waste into a feedstock for new products with the potential to displace 30% of crude oil use today and reduce global CO2 emissions by 7%. Using bacteria, LanzaTech’s carbon recycling technology converts a variety of input streams from industrial off-gases (refining, steel, ferro alloy), unsorted unrecyclable MSW, biomass wastes and residues. In addition, this solution is also able to convert the ethanol into a drop-in jet fuel, which is significant for a sector that currently has limited options to reduce emissions. By converting pollution into fuels and chemicals, it possible to imagine planes powered by recycled GHG emissions or yoga pants starting their life as pollution from a steel mill. Highly versatile, LanzaTech provides a solution to convert pollution into fuels and chemicals, cleaning our air and keeping crude oil in the ground.
