LanzaJet's unique and innovative approach has been approved by ASTM to produce certified, drop-in jet and diesel fuels using sustainably-certified ethanol as the feedstock. LanzaJet's history started 15 years ago in New Zealand when LanzaTech was founded to develop carbon recycling technology. Over that period of time and by working with the US Department of Energy's Pacific Northwest National Lab, an innovative approach was developed, approved, and scaled to produce low-carbon jet and diesel fuels from ethanol feedstock. This creates localized feedstock solutions across the globe by leveraging waste sources as the commodity for ethanol production. - The launch of LanzaJet, with financial contributions from our investors Suncor Energy, Mitsui, LanzaTech, and support from ANA, has set the stage for the accelerated commercialization of LanzaJet's proprietary sustainable fuels technology.
