One man’s junk, another man’s treasure? Looking at carbon monoxide and LanzaTech

July 12, 2015 |

What’s LanzaTech all about? How does it work and why? Here are answers for your questions. Why don’t steel mills generate power for the grid — why make fuels instead of steam? “The fact that many of these industrial facilities could be making electricity now, but are not, tells the story,” LanzaTech CEO Jennifer Holmgren […]

Junk or treasure? Looking at carbon monoxide and LanzaTech

October 15, 2014 |

A blogger levels an explosive set of charges at LanzaTech: “Khosla’s latest gangrene venture”, “thermodynamic junk”, “gangrene fake company”. Alleges that US Secretaries of Energy Moniz, Chu and Bodman were “bought out by special interests”. Why? What’s going on? We lay out the complete story, and look at the data, as LanzaTech responds.  In a note regarding LanzaTech circulated […]

Stanford researchers produce ethanol straight from carbon monoxide gas

Stanford researchers produce ethanol straight from carbon monoxide gas

April 9, 2014 |

In California, Stanford University scientists have found a new, highly efficient way to produce liquid ethanol from carbon monoxide gas. This promising discovery could provide an eco-friendly alternative to conventional ethanol production from corn and other crops, say the scientists. Their results are published in the April 9 advanced online edition of the journal Nature.
