Project in Hayrana, India at IndianOil refinery; In 2017, IOC and LanzaTech signed a Statement of Intent to construct the world’s first refinery off gas-to-bioethanol production facility in India.
Project in Ghent, Belgium at ArcelorMitttal plant; Convert CO₂ to bioethanol to be used for transportation fuel or plastics.
Research w/ Lanzatech on using syngas to develop specialty plastics; Combines Evonik’s biotechnology platforms w/ LanzaTech’s synthetic biology & gas fermentation expertise for the development of a route to bio-processed precursers for specialty plastics from waste derived synthesis gas.
The Global CO2 Initiative at the University of Michigan aims to identify and pursue commercially sustainable approaches that reduce atmospheric CO2 levels by 4 gigatons/year.
Produces non-combustable, coal-based carbon foams.
Thermoplastics are created using captured CO₂ rather than petroleum. While traditional plastics have been primarily petroleum based, these new materials are derived from carbon dioxide and are produced through the copolymerization of CO2 with one or more epoxides.
Produces a naturally-occurring, biodegradable biopolymer from waste methane that is economically competitive with conventional oil-based plastics.
