Our Investors + Supporters

LanzaJet was formed through the contributions of our investors LanzaTech, Suncor, Mitsui, along with support from ANA. We continue to accelerate our growth through new partnerships and have recently welcomed British Airways and Shell as our latest investors. The backing from these organizations is significantly accelerating LanzaJet’s commercial deployment at a time when reducing emissions, especially of aviation, is increasingly important and demonstrates a joint commitment to creating a resilient, lower carbon future. We thank all of our investors  for their commitment and continued support.

Our novel phased investment approach will see the initial investment followed by a capital call once key demonstration milestones have been met. Several pathways to investment exist, each with rights and value creation relevant to the investment. And, as with our first phase of investment opportunity, the LanzaJet technology, process, and pricing approach are designed to de-risk our operations, equity investment and debt.

Our Experience

A new company that’s been in development and a leader for more than 10 years.

LanzaJet has over a decade of experience scaling up, certifying, and proving all aspects of LanzaJet alcohol-to-jet (ATJ) technology. The core technology development work was completed by LanzaTech which then spun-out LanzaJet into its own independent entity to accelerate the commercialization of the ATJ technology.

Initial research and proof of concept work started out at Pacific Northwest National Labs in 2010 with collaboration with the FAA and US Department of Energy (DOE). The technology was scaled up in 2014-2017 at the LanzaTech R&D and demo facility in Soperton, Georgia, USA – LanzaTech Freedom Pines Biorefinery. ASTM approval was obtained in 2018.

Our first ATJ demonstration unit at Freedom Pines produced 4,000 gallons of jet (15,200 liters) and 600 gallons of diesel (2,300 liters). A portion of this fuel was used to power a commercial passenger flight on a Boeing-747 jet operated by Virgin Atlantic from Orlando, Florida, USA to London, England in 2018. The fuel was also used for a 2019 transpacific flight to deliver a new Boeing aircraft to ANA in Tokyo, Japan from Everett, Washington, USA.

In June 2020, LanzaTech formed a new company, LanzaJet Inc, to address sustainable aviation fuel and renewable diesel needs through the commercialization of ATJ technology. Leveraging LanzaTech’s successful commercialization strategy and experience, LanzaJet’s business model is anchored in licensing our technology and providing expert project development and operations services. We also build, own, and operate plants.
