Decarbonizing the aviation industry is a big discussion point when it comes to sustainable aviation operations and climate change. Someday is now, is the slogan when visiting Lanza Jet’s website.

Aviation uses 100B gallons of fossil jet fuel per year. Sustainable Aviation Fuel is the industry’s best hope to decarbonize. LanzaJet is in the strongest position to scale SAF production and meet the urgent moment of climate change. 

This is also a 16.8 billion Dollar market of business opportunities.

LanzaJet has developed the world’s inaugural advanced SAF technology utilizing ethanol, which can increase production to the necessary levels for decarbonizing the aviation industry.

Lanzajet issued a press release explaining a giant step forward in the United States.

LanzaJet, a leading sustainable fuels technology company and sustainable fuels producer, joined government officials, industry leaders, partners, and supporters to open LanzaJet Freedom Pines Fuels, the world’s first ethanol-to-sustainable aviation fuel (SAF) production facility on January 24, 2024.

On January 24, 2024, LanzaJet Freedom Pines Fuels, the world’s inaugural ethanol-to-sustainable aviation fuel (SAF) production facility, was inaugurated by LanzaJet. Government officials, industry leaders, partners, and supporters were in attendance at this momentous event.

LanzaJet inaugurated the first-ever ethanol-to-sustainable aviation fuel (SAF) production facility, named LanzaJet Freedom Pines Fuels, on January 24, 2024. Esteemed guests, including government officials, industry leaders, partners, and supporters, gathered to witness this historic occasion.

Located in Georgia, USA, LanzaJet Freedom Pines Fuels will produce 10 million gallons of SAF and renewable diesel per year from low carbon and certified ethanol, meeting U.S. and global standards. LanzaJet Freedom Pines Fuels serves as a blueprint for utilizing first-of-its-kind innovation to scale SAF production and enables LanzaJet’s aspiration for 1 billion gallons of SAF production by 2030.

“This historic milestone is a testament to the conviction required by industry, government, and funders to advance innovation and stretch the boundaries of what is achievable to tackle climate change,” said LanzaJet CEO Jimmy Samartzis. “Between feedstock versatility, efficiency, and economics that enable scale globally, we stand ready to meet aviation’s decarbonization goals.”

LanzaJet was joined at the event by U.S. Secretary of Agriculture Tom Vilsack, U.S. Deputy Secretary of Energy David Turk, climate leaders, industry executives, and state and local officials in Georgia.

“The Biden-Harris Administration is committed to harnessing the full potential of SAF as we continue to build a strong economy that is sustainable, resilient, competitive, and keeps rural places thriving,” said U.S. Agriculture Secretary Tom Vilsack. “LanzaJet’s facility will help accelerate the SAF industry and provide new economic opportunities for producers for a more sustainable future.”
