LanzaJet opens ethanol to SAF production facility

LanzaJet has opened its newest production facility 'Freedom Pines Fuels' in Georgia, US. This facility is set to convert ethanol into SAF and renewable diesel, at a rate of 10 million gallons per year. The SAF, which causes around 70% less greenhouse gas emissions than fossil jet fuels, will be used directly as a drop-in fuel for the aviation industry. The ethanol used in the conversion process is based on a variety of feedstocks, such as agricultural waste, municipal solid waste, energy crops, and carbon captured from industrial processes. The US government hopes that LanzaJet's technology can help achieve the White House's SAF Grand Challenge, which aims to reduce aviation emissions by annually producing a minimum of 3 billion gallons of SAF by 2030.
