Carbon Engineering, LanzaTech aim to produce more than 100 million litres of SAF from CO2


Carbon Engineering and LanzaTech UK want to produce more than 100 million litres of sustainable aviation fuel (SAF), made from atmospheric carbon dioxide (CO2), annually.

The duo on Monday (26th July) unveiled such ambitions as part of a new agreement which will look to develop a large-scale, commercial air-to-jet facility to produce the fuel before the end of the decade in the UK.

Dubbed Project AtmosFUEL, the project is already gaining support, and is one of eight projects shortlisted for the UK Department for Transport’s Green Fuels Green Skies Competition that will share £15m in government funding to support plant development.

LanzaTech and Carbon Engineering, however, are not the only one involved in the plans. British Airways and Virgin Atlantic have also expressed plans to work with the duo and examine how recycled atmospheric CO2 can be transformed into the ultra-low carbon jet fuel.
