Colabit and LanzaJet, new members of the Advanced Biofuels Coalition

Colabit e LanzaJet, nuovi membri della Advanced Biofuels Coalition

Colabit, that produce fuel from waste materials and LanzaJet world’s leading ethanol to Sustainable Aviation Fuel (SAF) are new members of the Advanced Biofuels Coalition.

Colabit is a Swedish based fuel company offering a fast-track solution to transport sector’s need to reduce carbon dioxide emissions. Since 2013 Colabit has successfully developed renewable liquid fuels thar are directly compatible with existing vehicles and infrastructure. At present Colabit focus on design and technology collaborations pending approval of the Environmental Permit. Colabit also includes a well-developed sales network and logistics in Sweden organized in Colabit Sales Group.

LanzaJet is the world’s leading ethanol to Sustainable Aviation Fuel (SAF) technology company and sustainable fuels producer dedicated to accelerating the energy transition.

Magnus Nyfjäll, CEO at Colabit commented:

The road to a fossil-free world requires us to think differently –and to take actions urgently. At Colabit we believe in making a difference here and now, using what we already have. Colabit’s renewable liquid fuels are compatible with the existing infrastructure and replace traditional fuels without modifications.

Erich Cuaz, Chair of Advanced Biofuels Coalition and Head of Government Affairs and Advocacy at Clariant commented:

With Colabit as a new member, the Coalition gains an innovative thought leader. We all look forward to collaborating with Colabit to further promote the adoption advanced biofuels, advancing the urgently needed defossilization efforts in transportation atEU level.

LanzaJet is now commercializing technology that enables significant production globally for a drop-in sustainable fuel alternative to traditional fossil jet fuel.

Their patented Alcohol-to-Jet(ATJ) technology produces SAF that can be made from a diverse and flexible set of feedstocks, including agricultural and wood waste, industrial off-gases, municipal solid waste, and recycled carbon. In early 2024, LanzaJet will open LanzaJet Freedom Pines Fuels, the world’s first ATJ SAF commercial production plant in Soperton, Georgia, United States. LanzaJet Freedom Pines Fuels will produce 10 million gallons of SAF and renewable diesel per year from ethanol. LanzaJet has announced projects across the world, including Project Speedbird in the United Kingdom and other European ventures in various stages of development.

Jimmy Samartzis, Chief Executive Officer at LanzaJet commented:

At LanzaJet, we are committed to ensuring the aviation industry can meet its ambitious goals to be carbon neutral by 2050. We’re thrilled to be joining the Advanced Biofuels Coalition, an organization committed to promoting sustainable fuels across transportation sectors. LanzaJet looks forward to continuing our engagement across Europe with the leading industries and sectors working hard to meet the urgency of climate change.

Erich Cuaz, Chair of Advanced Biofuels Coalition commented:

LanzaJet joining our coalition is a great example of industry leadership in advancing the crucial defossilization efforts in transportation. Their global expertise in pioneering Sustainable Aviation Fuels will greatly help the coalition in further promoting sustainable technologies under ambitious, though realistic policy frameworks.

Advanced biofuels made from wastes and residues as defined in Renewable Energy Directive Annex IX Part A, are a sustainable solution to reduce emissions in industry and transport, including also harder to decarbonize transport modes such as sustainable aviation fuels, maritime transport, and heavy-duty transport, as well as wider applications such as in the off-grid energy sector.

Since the adoption of REDII in 2018, several investments have moved forward and are contributing to the EU’s goal of achieving dramatic reduction in transport CO2 emissions. The Advanced Biofuels Coalition represents the leading companies in the advanced biofuels industry, strongly supports the EU target for climate-neutrality by 2050 and the need for more ambitious 2030 intermediate targets.
