Investors come fom all continents:  Kosla, Siemens, Quiming, MLSF, Mitsui, SBCSV and New Zealand super annuation fund. In China are two pre commercial units each producing 100 000 gallons/year from of gases from steel production.




LanzaTech's unique microbial process provides a sustainable pathway to produce ethanol and hydrocarbon fuels as well as platform chemicals that are building blocks to products that have become indispensable in our lives such as rubber, plastics and synthetic fibers.

Currently operating a second pre-commercial facility in China using steel mill off-gases for ethanol production, LanzaTech, a company founded in New Zealand is now a global organization with offices in USA, New Zealand, Europe, China and India.

Full commercial operation is targeted for 2015.




The process:

LanzaTech’s gas fermentation process uses carbon-containing gases as both a nutrient and energy source for its proprietary microbes to produce fuels and chemicals. The platform is able to utilize gases that contain carbon monoxide (CO), with or without hydrogen (H2), or gases containing carbon dioxide (CO2) and H2, providing a novel approach to carbon capture and reuse.
