2012 & 2013 Global Recognition2012TiE50 has named LanzaTech as one of the topEnergy/CleanTech technology start upcompanies for 2012. TiE50 is TiE Silicon Valley’spremier annual awards program keenlycontested by thousands of technology startupsworldwide.MIT technology reviewLanzaTech was named by TechnologyReview to the 2012 TR50, the thirdannual list of the world’s mostinnovative technology companiesLanzaTech has been named asone of 10 New Energy Pioneersat the fifth annual Bloomberg NewEnergy Finance Summit. Thisaward recognizes LanzaTech as aworld-leader in energy innovation.Richard Pearse Award for InnovationExcellence in the NZ Aviation Industry LanzaTech has won the RichardPearse Award for InnovationExcellence in the NZ AviationIndustry.2013LanzaTech has been selected as a World EconomicForum Technology Pioneer 2013. Recognition is forcompanies involved in the design, development anddeployment of new technologies and hold promise ofsignificantly impacting the way business and societyoperates.Recognized as Thought Leader in Sector21

Summary• To meet growing energy demand & stabilize atmospheric CO 2 levels, there is aneed to diversify fuel pool through multiple pathways• Emerging technologies and continuous innovation will support reachingEurope’s renewable energy goals• LanzaTech fits in current regulations and is removed from the food for fueldiscussion• The LanzaTech process captures non-food, waste carbonto produce low cost alcohols, thereby challenging traditional conceptions ofwaste and energy sources• Alcohols produced via the LanzaTech process are an excellent substrate forconversion to drop-in hydrocarbon fuels• Commercial alcohol production rates on raw industrial waste gases has beendemonstrated at scale• Compelling volumes of waste gases world wide have potential to makesignificant impact on the fuel pool22
