About LanzaTech:

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, bacteria convert pollution to products! Imagine a day when you can power a plane by recycled carbon emissions, when your yoga pants or sneakers started life as pollution from a steel mill. This future is possible using LanzaTech technology with the first 2 commercial units converting steel mill waste gases to fuels being built; in China with Shougang and in Belgium with the world’s largest steel maker, ArcelorMittal. LanzaTech has an additional 3 commercial projects in the pipeline, in India, South Africa and California. LanzaTech has already produced synthetic jet fuel from recycled carbon emissions and has a partnership with Virgin Atlantic.

In 2017, LanzaTech was recognized as the #1 Hottest company in the Advanced Bioeconomy by Biofuels Digest, the world’s most widely-read bioeconomy daily. The company was also inaugurated into the Cleantech100 Hall of Fame, having been listed in the top 100 cleantech companies over the last 7 years. In 2016, the company won the Young Global Leader Award for Circular Economy at the World Economic Forum, LanzaTech was also the top biofuels company in the 2016 CNBC Disruptor 50 Companies list.  In 2015, LanzaTech was awarded the U.S. EPA Presidential Green Chemistry Award for Greener Synthetic Pathways. The company’s accomplishments were recognized through a number of prestigious awards in 2014, including the Guardian Sustainable Business Innovation Award for Carbon and Energy Management, Breakthrough Innovation Award at the Platts Global Metals Awards, and the Technical Development Award from the World Petroleum Council. In 2013, the company was named a World Economic Forum Technology Pioneer.
