LanzaTech

An industrial biotechnology company developing a gas fermentation platform for converting concentrated industrial emissions into valuable chemicals.

LanzaTech was founded in 2005 by Dr. Sean Simpson and Dr. Richard Forster to commercialize an industrial biotechnology platform for converting carbon monoxide to valuable chemicals, such as ethanol, with acetogenic microbes. The company has developed proof of concept for producing 20 different chemicals and several fuels, including drop-in jet fuel, from carbon monoxide and carbon dioxide. LanzaTech has pursued a bolt-on commercialization strategy that utilizes industrial emissions from certain industries with highly concentrated flue gases, such as steelmaking.
