This project will demonstrate our novel, next-generation bioreactor technology at pilot-scale, an important step towards commercialization. This advanced bioreactor, which has been validated in the lab and field, will expand the scope of gas fermentation by increasing efficiency and reducing production costs.

We propose to demonstrate and validate the performance of this bioreactor by producing ethanol from forestry-residues in Alberta, with extended benefits for converting other resources such as industrial waste gases and agricultural residues using LanzaTech’s gas fermentation platform.

This project takes a major step towards realizing a low carbon future by opening new waste resources to serve hard-to-decarbonize sectors, such as aviation (jet fuel from ethanol) and consumer goods (materials from fermentation-derived chemicals).
