LanzaTech produces Omega-3 Fatty Acids from CO2

Omega-3 fatty acids LanzaTech, a New Zealand-founded carbon recycling company and a research team from India’s IOC-DBT Center for Advanced Bio-Energy Research have developed a way to use carbon dioxide emissions to produce omega-3 fatty acids.

Omega-3 fatty acids have become a multi-billion-dollar business because of their nutritional benefits, and sold in capsule form.

LanzaTech and its Indian partner have now produced the omega-3 fatty acids by recycling carbon dioxide gases using LanzaTech’s microbial processes.

The microbes produce acetate which is then consumed as energy and carbon by proprietary algae   which is developed by Indian team. The algae are rich in omega-3 fatty acids and can be used as fish meal substitute or the fish oil can be extracted and purified as an omega-3 lipid product.

The process closely parallels LanzaTech’s gas-to-fuels technology and that experience will help rapidly commercialize omega-3 fatty acids. The company captures carbon-rich gases from large industrial operations such as steel plants and uses microbes to recycle the waste gas.
