Sustainable fuels technology company and sustainable fuels producer, LanzaJet, has joined government officials, industry leaders, partners, and supporters to open LanzaJet Freedom Pines Fuels, Georgia, US. This is the world’s first ethanol to sustainable aviation fuel (SAF) production facility.
LanzaJet’s technology is recognised as the pioneering ethanol to SAF production process and pathway. This ethanol-based technology is the world’s first viable next-generation SAF technology capable of scaling production to the levels needed to decarbonise aviation through widely available and sustainable feedstock, emerging commercial waste-based feedstock solutions, and promising economic conditions.
Located in Soperton, Georgia, LanzaJet Freedom Pines Fuels represents one of the most promising SAF technologies in nearly a decade to reach commercial readiness, and will produce 10 million gallons of SAF and renewable diesel per year from low carbon, sustainable, and certified ethanol which meets US and global standards.
LanzaJet CEO Jimmy Samartzis says: ‘Our novel LanzaJet ethanol to SAF process technology is now deployed at our commercial plant in Georgia which will convert ethanol into drop-in SAF. As we start-up the plant, we will continue to refine our technology, while launching our efforts to advance new sustainable fuels projects globally.’
