Welcome to the Post Pollution Future
It’s not a debate. There’s no two sides. A post-pollution world is inevitable. Humans will either be part of it, or the planet will go on without us. But where others see a dire choice, LanzaTech sees a trillion dollar opportunity.
The good news is LanzaTech has invented a technology big enough to meet the moment. One that transforms pollution and ensures that humans continue to prosper far into the post-pollution future.
The science is state-of-the-art, but the idea is simple. We use nature to heal nature. Carbon emissions are fed to trillions of carbon-hungry microbes that turn pollution into valuable raw material commodities.

Dr. Sean Simpson
CSO & Co-Founder
Sean is a Co-founder and Chief Scientific Officer of LanzaTech. Sean’s team has cracked the seemingly impossible task of working with gas fermenting organisms at scale. Across the platform, he has led a team that has delivered a broad and unique patent portfolio covering all areas of gas fermentation, including microbes and feedstock handling.
LanzaTech is changing how people think about carbon, with the option to recycle a “liability” into valuable and sustainable new products.
Decades ago, we recognized the harm humans were causing our planet. So, we implemented recycling programs, bought organic foods, and joined the fair-trade movement. Today, companies offer products made from recycled plastic, lab grown protein, and governments are creating legislative landscapes to support a Net Zero future.
LanzaTech’s carbon recycling technology is like retrofitting a brewery onto an emission source like a steel mill or a landfill site, but instead of using sugars and yeast to make beer, pollution is converted by bacteria to fuels and chemicals. Imagine a day when your plane is powered by recycled GHG emissions, when your shampoo bottle started life as emissions from a steel mill. This future is possible today using LanzaTech technology and LanzaTech’s CarbonSmartTM IP licensing services.
