LanzaTech’s Carbon Recycling Technology Turns Waste into Saleable Products

An important step towards commercialization, LanzaTech is demonstrating its novel, next-generation bioreactor technology at demonstration-scale in Edmonton, Alberta. LanzaTech’s carbon recycling technology produces ethanol from forestry residues and off gases from municipal solid waste; the ethanol can then be used to make clothing, fuel, and more. This project takes a major step towards realizing a low emissions future by opening new waste resources to serve hard-to-decarbonize sectors, such as aviation and consumer goods. This advanced bioreactor will expand the scope of gas fermentation by increasing efficiency and reducing production costs. LanzaTech is partnering with Suncor on the project. ERA committed $10 million in funding to the $27 million project through its BEST Challenge.
