LanzaJet receives EPA approval for D4 RINs from its ethanol-based SAF pathway

January 23, 2023 |

In Georgia, LanzaJet recently received approval from the United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) to generate D4 biomass-based diesel renewable identification numbers (RINs) for sustainable aviation fuel (SAF) and renewable diesel produced from sugarcane ethanol at LanzaJet’s Freedom Pines Fuels facility in Soperton, Ga.

This regulatory milestone marks the first time in which ethanol has been approved by the EPA as a feedstock to produce another fuel under the Renewable Fuel Standard (RFS) program – and the first-ever EPA pathway approval for a biointermediate feedstock.

The EPA’s fuel pathway approval allows LanzaJet to move forward with its plans to produce 10 million gallons of SAF and renewable diesel per year from ethanol, using a range of sustainable, low carbon intensity ethanol, including from waste-based feedstocks. LanzaJet Freedom Pines Fuels, which will open later this year, will nearly double the amount of current SAF production in the United States.
