LanzaTech uses three simple steps to capture carbon emissions from steel mills, traps them in bioreactors, and converts them into the same building blocks that conventional polyester is made of. It helps reduce pollution and limits the use of virgin fossil resources needed to make new products.

Simon Brown, general manager at H&M Move, said they are thrilled to offer customers a capsule collection made with CarbonSmart polyster, a ground-breaking material using repurposed carbon emissions. Through this partnership, H&M Move can explore innovative materials, and help create more sustainable sportswear in the future. Jennifer Holmgren, CEO of LanzaTech, said the innovation in the textile industry focus on sustainability for a better world.

It shows that innovative solutions can be found to reduce the environmental impact of clothing production.
