LanzaTech: A CarbonSmart™ approach to Steelmaking.

LanzaTech is turning our global carbon crisis into a feedstock opportunity by recycling carbon from industrial off-gases and other sources. With commercial steel-based units already in production and construction, LanzaTech’s gas fermentation process can reduce steel mill emissions and make valuable new products for a circular carbon economy.
