Did You Know…That A Commercial Flight Using Sustainable Aviation Fuel Made from Recycled Waste Carbon Gases Flew from Florida to London?

On October 2, 2018, history was made! A commercial flight using ground-breaking sustainable aviation fuel, produced at a LanzaTech facility in Georgia, made from recycled waste carbon gases flew from Orlando, Florida to London, England. The flight was a key milestone on the trajectory to renewable jet fuel.

Many of those who made this technology and trip possible—LanzaTech, the U.S. Department of Energy’s Pacific Northwest National Laboratory (PNNL), Virgin Atlantic, and others—gathered in Orlando to observe this momentous occasion in time for bioenergy research and development. This flight was years in the making and could not have happened without great minds in science, business, government, and industry coming together to create alternative jet fuel that could serve consumers, provide economic opportunities, and capture carbon for a second use.
