This Georgia refinery is making low-carbon jet fuel from alcohol

Maria Gallucci writes for Canary Media about a sustainable jet fuel facility in Georgia.

The C3 Take
  • The facility is the first of its kind in the U.S. and will make a small, but meaningful, contribution to reducing global CO2 emissions.
  • LanzaTech’s sustainable aviation fuel is primarily made with ethanol that is sourced from municipal waste or agricultural waste which is then turned into jet fuel.
  • Using this fuel can deliver emissions reductions of 54 to 66 percent when compared to a fossil diesel baseline.

“The ribbon-cutting event drew attendance from U.S. Agriculture Secretary Tom Vilsack and Department of Energy officials, as well as the company’s top financial backers. The Microsoft Climate Innovation Fund invested $50 million and Bill Gates’ Breakthrough Energy awarded a $50 million grant, both in 2022, to support construction of the first-of-a-kind facility.”
