Best Innovation by an SME


A highly efficient route to carbon capture and re-use producing high-value chemicals and fuels


LanzaTech has been judged to have shown the “Best Innovation by an SME” in the global ICIS Innovations Awards 2011.


Environmental considerations played a key part in all the winning entries in the ICIS Awards. John Baker, global editor at ICIS, says this year there was an emphasis on bio-based technologies, designed to replace oil and gas feedstocks in the chemical industry or reduce carbon emissions. No fewer than seven of the 14 short-listed entries involved bio-based technologies.


LanzaTech’s innovation caught the judges' eyes as it successfully incorporates synthesis-gas technology and bioprocessing to give an economically robust route to carbon capture and re-use.


One of the ICIS Awards judges, Dr Gregg Zank who is chief technology officer at Dow Corning, said LanzaTech’s technology had the potential to be disruptive in the long term, especially if it could develop or modify the organisms further to increase the range of chemicals produced. "There is a lot of novelty here," he said.


Another judge, Dr Adrian Higson from the UK Centre for Biorenewable Energy, Fuels and Materials, said LanzaTech’s marriage of thermoprocessing and bio-processing gives LanzaTech a flexible platform.
