Global Director, Sustainable Solutions for Oil & Gas
LanzaTech is a late-stage biotechnology start-up company, originally founded in New Zealand over 17 years ago. LanzaTech is focused on sustainability and decarbonization. LanzaTech’s carbon transformation technology is like retrofitting a brewery onto an emission source like a steel mill or a landfill site, but instead of using sugars and yeast to make beer, pollution is converted by bacteria to fuels and chemicals. Imagine a day when your plane is powered by recycled GHG emissions, when your shampoo bottle started life as emissions from a steel mill, and when your clothes are derived from refinery off gases. This future is possible today using LanzaTech technology to make a CarbonSmartTM future.
