LanzaJet secures $20 million investment from global airport operator Groupe ADP

LanzaJet announced May 16 a $20 million investment from Groupe ADP, a world leader in airport design and operations.


The investment enables LanzaJet to continue building its capability and capacity to deploy its sustainable aviation fuel (SAF) process technology globally.


“We continue to lay the foundation for building the SAF industry across the entire value chain, and with this significant contribution from Groupe ADP—a first-of-its-kind in the industry—we will expand LanzaJet’s technology deployment and global growth,” said LanzaJet CEO Jimmy Samartzis.

“Together, we will work towards expanding SAF production and logistics into airports to support airlines and Groupe ADP customers worldwide as the industry works collaboratively to decarbonize,” Samartzis added.


ADP’s investment in LanzaJet comes as the company recently opened LanzaJet Freedom Pines Fuels—the world’s first commercial-scale ethanol-to-SAF plant.


Located in the United States, the historic plant will produce SAF and renewable diesel from low-carbon and sustainable ethanol and achieve International Sustainability and Carbon Certification.


LanzaJet Freedom Pines Fuels serves as a blueprint for utilizing first-of-its-kind innovation to scale SAF production and enables LanzaJet’s aspiration for 1 billion gallons of SAF production by 2030.


“Low-carbon aviation will not take off without the transformation of airports into energy hubs with a range of low-carbon solutions,” said Augustin de Romanet, CEO of Groupe ADP.

“The airport revolution must happen now, and it is underway in Paris. As the world’s leading airport operator, we wanted to go further and act at source by supporting the production of sustainable aviation fuel, investing directly in LanzaJet, an innovative company able to deploy its technology responsibly around the world, and adapting to local waste to make these new fuels available everywhere,” de Romanet added.


In addition to ADP, LanzaJet’s portfolio of investors and funders includes All Nippon Airways, Breakthrough Energy, British Airways, LanzaTech, Microsoft’s Climate Innovation Fund, Mitsui & Co., Shell, Southwest Airlines and Suncor Energy.
