energy efficient carbon capture
Energy Efficient Carbon Capture

30% of Carbon in BOF gas is Captured as Ethanol

  • LanzaTech process produces valuable products with a higher energy efficiency than a power plant
  • LanzaTech captures 30% of the carbon from BOF (Basic Oxygen Furnace) gas as valuable hydrocarbons

summary
Summary
  • To meet growing energy demand & stabilize atmospheric CO2 levels - need to diversify fuel pool and introduce >30% drop in zero carbon fuels
  • The LanzaTech process can capture non-food, waste carbon to produce low cost alcohols
  • Alcohols produced via the LanzaTech process are an excellent substrate for conversion to drop-in hydrocarbon fuels
  • Commercial alcohol production rates on raw industrial waste gases has been demonstrated at scale
  • Compelling volumes of waste gases world wide have potential to make significant impact on the fuel pool
  • Collaborating with leading conversion partners, industry agencies, and certification bodies to develop sustainable, low cost, integrated hydrocarbon fuels processes from non-food sources
