ROSELLE, Illinois (May 16, 2012)—LanzaTech, a producer of low-carbon fuels and chemicals from waste gases, has for the second year in a row been named a TiE50 winner, as a leader in entrepreneurship, innovation, and management excellence.

The TiE50 awards will be presented at TiEcon 2012, the world’s largest conference of entrepreneurs, May 18 – 19th, at the Santa Clara Convention Center in Santa Clara, California. The 50 winners of 2012 were chosen from more than 2,100 promising companies screened by TiE’s expert committee.
