LanzaTech and Velocys Among Seven Successful Grantees for UK Government Grants Supporting Advanced Fuels Production Plants

10 July 2018 - On the heels of LanzaTech’s announcement in June that they have commenced commercial production at the world’s first commercial facility converting industrial emissions to sustainable ethanol in China, news comes of LanzaTech’s successful bid to secure a £410,000 grant from the UK government to partially fund building a commercial Alcohol-to-Jet facility in the UK.

Velocys was also among the awardees and will receive £434,000 for a plant of their own in the UK.

The grants are part of the UK governments drive to reduce carbon emissions as part of the Future Fuels for Flight and Freight Competition. The goals of the competition are to increase UK domestic production of low carbon fuels and to stimulate the economy.

CAAFI continues to collaborate with LanzaTech in multiple areas associated with feedstock development and ATJ conversion concepts in the U.S. CAAFI has also engaged with Velocys on potential supply chain development opportunities in various regions of the U.S.
