LanzaTech and Tadweer to Work Conversion of Waste to Alternative Fuels
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."
