8 June 2016 – LanzaTech, a company changing the game for carbon recycling through the development of sustainable fuels and chemicals, made CNBC’s fourth annual “Disruptor 50” list! Companies included in this high-praise list represent forward thinking entities that are disrupting established industries and public companies to create a new market paradigm. LanzaTech made the list at #13 for its use of waste gases in the production of fuels and chemicals and was chosen from a group of over 750 nominated companies.
LanzaTech has been pursuing the development of sustainable alternative jet fuel (SAJF), and is an active collaborator with CAAFI®. “The CAAFI community holds LanzaTech’s CEO, Dr. Jennifer Holmgren and her team, in high regard for their vision, passion, and leadership in the burgeoning renewable fuels industrial sector,” commented Steve Csonka, CAAFI Executive Director, while also reflecting favorably on their active involvement with other leading entities in the sector.
LanzaTech is engaged with CAAFI in the Farm 2 Fly 2.0 (F2F2) public-private-partnership effort to develop sustainable alternative jet fuel supply chains and production in different U.S. states and regions. The company is also pursuing ASTM International qualification of its alternative jet fuel pathway and was a recipient of U.S. Federal Aviation Administration funding to assist with biofuel production scale-up and fuel testing.
