Bill Gates-backed startup builds a massive refinery to turn alcohol into jet fuel

Christopher McFadden writes in Interesting Engineering about a new sustainable aviation fuel plant.

The C3 Take
  • LanzaJet is set to build its first sustainable aviation fuel plant in Georgia with the backing of Breakthrough Energy Catalyst.
  • LanzaJet has created a process that converts ethanol into sustainable aviation fuel (SAF), which is 70% cleaner than traditional jet fuel.
  • Once it is fully operational, LanzaJet is expected to churn out 9 million gallons of SAF per year.

LanzaJet’s Freedom Pines Fuels project will be the company’s first commercial-scale SAF plant. It will also be the first plant in the world to make alcohol-to-jet SAF, which it is hoped could reduce greenhouse gas emissions by at least 70% compared to fossil jet fuel. The project is set to be finished in 2023.”
