Lanzajet’s Ethanol SAF Facility Opens

LanzaJet, a sustainable fuels producer, announced the opening of its Freedom Pines Fuels,  the first global ethanol to sustainable aviation fuel (SAF) production facility.

The SAF facility opened on January 24, 2024 and is capable of scaling production to the levels needed to decarbonize aviation.

Located in Georgia, USA, LanzaJet Freedom Pines Fuels will produce 10 million gallons of SAF and renewable diesel annually from low carbon and certified ethanol, which will meet standards globally. 

The company’s goal is to scale SAF production and generate 1 billion gallons of SAF production by 2030.

"This historic milestone is 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 in a statement. "Between feedstock versatility, efficiency, and economics that enable scale globally, we stand ready to meet aviation's decarbonization goals."

The opening of Freedom Pines Fuels also featured LanzaJet shareholders British Airways, LanzaTech, Mitsui & Co, Shell, and Suncor Energy and funders such as Microsoft's Climate Innovation Fund, Breakthrough Energy and All Nippon Airways (ANA).
