GAIL has reportedly tied up with US-based LanzaTech for the exploration of setting up a pilot-scale carbon capture and conversion project. As per the company’s statement, LanzaTech has carbon capture and utilization technology which has a working similarity to a brewery, that is, proprietary bacteria consuming carbon-rich pollution from industrial facilities and converting it into chemicals to create rubber, plastics, synthetic fibers, and fuels. These materials can then be further used to make clothing, laundry detergent, and sustainable aviation fuel.
Mr. Sandeep Kumar Gupta, Chairman and Managing Director of GAIL, commented on the collaboration, “The possibilities coming out of this collaboration with LanzaTech are very promising and significant to improving our carbon footprint. Using LanzaTech’s cutting-edge technology will enhance our environmental stewardship and open up new avenues for driving sustainability across our operations.” LanzaTech’s CEO, Ms. Jennifer Holmgren, said “Waste CO2 can be used to make the things we need.” GAIL aims to achieve net zero emissions from its operation by 2040.
