LanzaTech honored by the Cleantech Group as a Global Cleantech 100 Company and Continued Excellence Award Winner..
At the heart of the LanzaTech process is our patented, wholly-owned microbe that uses gas feeds as its sole source of carbon and energy for fuel and chemical production. Alternative technologies are restricted to the use of food or farmed resources for alternative fuel production. Because our microbe is feedstock agnostic and completely tolerant to the extreme levels of contaminants found in steel mill and other industrial off gases, our process can use the lowest cost, most readily-available resources, including hydrogen-free gases. These include:
By allowing the use of all these available resources, our process provides a strategically important route to eliminating the controversial “Food vs. Fuel” issue associated with traditional ethanol production.
