Who we are

LanzaTech was founded in early 2005 with a vision to be a dominant technology provider in the industrial bio-commodities arena.  Our goal was simple: to develop and commercialize proprietary technologies for the production of low-carbon fuels that do not compromise food or land resources.

Throughout 2005 and 2006, the company raised funding through New Zealand-based Angel investors and secured grants. These funds provided the resources to establish LanzaTech as a technology leader in this field. Soon thereafter, the company attracted Series A investment from an investor consortium led by Khosla Ventures; the Series B financing was led by Qiming Ventures.

LanzaTech closed its Series C investment in 2012 led by the Malaysian Life Sciences Capital Fund. New investors included PETRONAS Technology Ventures Sdn Bhd, the venture arm of PETRONAS, the national oil company of Malaysia, and Dialog Group, a leading Malaysian integrated specialist technical services provider to the oil, gas and petrochemical industry.

Today, LanzaTech is led by a multinational Board of Directors and Management Team with offices in the United States, New Zealand, China and India .
