Summary
• To meet growing energy demand & stabilize atmospheric
CO2 levels - need to diversify fuel pool and introduce
>30% drop in zero carbon fuels
• The LanzaTech process can capture non-food, waste carbon
to produce low cost alcohols
• Alcohols produced via the LanzaTech process are an
excellent substrate for conversion to drop-in hydrocarbon
fuels
• Commercial alcohol production rates on raw industrial waste
gases has been demonstrated at scale
• Compelling volumes of waste gases world wide have potential
to make significant impact on the fuel pool
• Collaborating with leading conversion partners,
industry agencies, and certification bodies to develop
sustainable, low cost, integrated hydrocarbon fuels
processes from non-food sources
