The “bug” that turns waste gases into useful chemicals

Grace Donnelly of Emerging Tech Brew writes about one company that is converting carbon dioxide into new materials.

The C3 Take
  • LanzaTech is a company that is converting captured CO2 into materials such as clothing and tires.
  • The company is now partnering with heavy industry, such as steel makers and refineries, to convert carbon emissions into microbes which can then be used to create products like natural gas.
  • Free market innovations are creating a cleaner planet.

“The company is also looking beyond the gases coming from smokestacks and exploring how it can convert other types of waste. LanzaTech is able to gasify solid waste, like plastics, non-recyclable trash, and discarded agricultural materials, turning them into syngas which can then be digested by the bacteria, Dower said.”
