LanzaTech is turning yesterday’s carbon pollution into tomorrow’s brand-name products. Its proprietary tech converts captured carbon from waste streams—including from industrial sites and agricultural residues—into material used to produce Bridgestone and Sumitomo tires, Coty fragrances, a Nivea moisturizer, and a line of Zara party dresses, among other products. “LanzaTech is revolutionizing the way we think about carbon,” says CEO Jennifer Holmgren, turning it into a “resource, not a liability.” In 2022 the company was named the only American Earthshot Prize finalist and completed its fourth carbon-capture facility, which will reduce a Belgian steel mill’s emissions by 3.9 million tonnes.
