LanzaTech continues to blaze the trail for the alcohol-to-jet (ATJ) sustainable aviation fuel pathway, leading the ASTM approval for 50% blending. As the company ramps up production at its 16 MGY commercial facility in China and has more than 59 MGY capacity in its pipeline, the spinout for a dedicated biojet fuel company will be key in the company's growth moving forward. With a $25 million investment from Suncor Energy and Mitsui & Co. combined with a $14 million grant from the U.S. DOE, LanzaJet is expected to bring online a 10 MGY biojet fuel and renewable diesel facility by 2022. LanzaTech was one of seven companies rated a strong "Strong Positive" in 2019 and will play a key role in decarbonizing the aviation sector going forward.
