From carbon capture to yoga pants


9th Aug 2021

Last month, LanzaTech announced a partnership with the athletic clothing retailer Lululemon to create a fabric using recycled carbon emissions.

LanzaTech’s process can use carbon dioxide from industrial emissions that are captured before it is released into the atmosphere. Carbon dioxide is fermented by LanzaTech’s innovative microorganism-based technology into ethanol.

We have previously discussed how ethanol can be used as a biofuel, but it can also be used as an intermediate in the manufacture of useful materials.

Along with partners India Glycols Limited (IGL) and Far Eastern New Century (FENC), the ethanol can be used to produce polyester. Firstly, IGL converts the ethanol to monoethylene glycol, before FENG converts the monoethylene glycol to polyester.

A great example of how innovation and collaboration can help create a circular economy, and generate materials in a sustainable manner.
