Lanzatech Jet Fuel “Lanzanol” was produced in China at the Shougang demonstration facility. The innovative alcohol-to-jet (AtJ) process was developed in collaboration with Pacific Northwest National Lab (PNNL) with support from the US Department of Energy (DOE) and the help of funding from HSBC.
LanzaTech and Virgin Atlantic are now set to continue to work with Boeing and assuming all approvals are achieved, Lanzanol jet fuel could be used in a first of its kind proving flight in 2017.
Sir Richard Branson said: “This is a real game changer for aviation and could significantly reduce the industry’s reliance on oil within our lifetime. Virgin Atlantic was the first commercial airline to test a bio‐fuel flight and continues to be a leader in sustainable aviation.”
