 LanzaJet opens new ethanol to SAF plant

news item image
LanzaJet has opened its Freedom Pines Fuels plant - the world’s first ethanol to sustainable aviation fuel (SAF) production facility.
This ethanol-based technology is the world’s first viable next-generation SAF technology capable of scaling production to the levels needed to decarbonise aviation through widely available and sustainable feedstock, emerging commercial waste-based feedstock solutions, and promising economic conditions.
Located in Soperton, Georgia, LanzaJet Freedom Pines Fuels represents one of the most promising SAF technologies in nearly a decade to reach commercial readiness, and will produce 10 million gallons of SAF and renewable diesel per year from low carbon, sustainable, and certified ethanol which meets US and global standards.
“Today is testament to the conviction required by industry, government, and funders to advance innovation and stretch the boundaries of what is achievable to address decarbonization and tackle climate change. This is a historic milestone in a long history of firsts for LanzaJet, the United States, and the SAF industry globally,” said LanzaJet CEO Jimmy Samartzis.
“Our novel LanzaJet ethanol to SAF process technology is now deployed at our commercial plant in Georgia which will convert ethanol into drop-in SAF. As we start-up the plant, we will continue to refine our technology, while launching our efforts to advance new sustainable fuels projects globally. Between feedstock versatility, efficiency, and economics that enable scale in the US and globally, we stand ready to meet aviation’s decarbonization goals established at the United Nations and country ambitions, such as the US SAF Grand Challenge.”
