LanzaTech and Tadweer to Work Conversion of Waste to Alternative Fuels

The potential project aims to identify the optimum transformation for multiple solid waste streams to clean fuel or clean energy

LanzaTech NZ, Inc. and Abu Dhabi Waste Management Company (Tadweer), have announced a collaboration to explore business opportunities to develop a large-scale conversion plant for transforming solid municipal waste into sustainable alternative fuel.

Eng Ali Al Dhaheri, CEO of Tadweer, said: "This is another great partnership we are exploring in 2023 – the UAE's Year of Sustainability. It exemplifies our commitment to partnering with leading waste management entities and driving sustainability across our organization.

"We believe that waste is a resource to be harnessed, and with LanzaTech's support, we aim to make this a reality."

"The project represents a tremendous opportunity to protect the planet by turning waste carbon into sustainable aviation fuel, keeping fossil fuels in the ground," said Jennifer Holmgren, CEO of LanzaTech.

She added: "The carbon found in municipal solid waste, which is piling up in landfills or being incinerated globally, can play a critical role in eliminating the virgin fossil resources used to make fuels and chemicals.

"It is a testament to the UAE's leadership and strong sustainability agenda that our technology has found a home here.

"This collaboration further advances the US and UAE's Partnership for Accelerating Clean Energy (PACE) and provides a foundation for deepening cooperation on circular economy and low-carbon fuels."
