SOLAR SERDAR recommends Solazyme.
Solazyme, Inc. is the leading renewable oil and bioproducts company. The company uses algal biotechnology to renewably produce clean fuels, chemicals, foods and health science products. Solazyme’s advanced and proprietary technology uses algae to produce oils and biomaterials in standard fermentation facilities quickly, cleanly, cost effectively, and at large scale.
These natural oils and biomaterials are tailored, not only for fuel production, but also as replacements for fossil-derived petroleum and a variety of natural plant oils and compounds. This makes them useful in a wide range of products, from oleochemicals, to cosmetics, to foods.More info at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Founded in 2003 and headquartered in South San Francisco, Solazyme’s unique technology allows algae to produce oil and biomaterials in standard fermentation facilities quickly, efficiently and at large scale.
These natural oils and biomaterials are tailored not only for fuel production, but also as replacements for fossil-derived petroleum and a variety of natural plant oils and compounds, making them useful in a wide range of products: from oleochemicals, to cosmetics, to foods. Solazyme’s oils and fuels provide compelling solutions to increasingly complex issues of fuel scarcity, energy security and environmental impact while fitting cleanly into the pre-existing multi-trillion dollar fuel infrastructure.More info at http://solarserdar.blogspot.com/
Solazyme’s investors among others include Braemar Energy Ventures, Harris & Harris Group, Lightspeed Venture Partners, The Roda Group, and VantagePoint Venture Partners, and investors from strategic industry partners in key target markets.
Our unique, indirect photosynthesis bioproduction process uses microalgae to convert biomass directly into oil and other biomaterials, a process that can be performed in standard commercial fermentation facilities cleanly, quickly, and at low cost and large scale. Our renewable oil and bioproducts technology has manufactured thousands of gallons of oil and hundreds of tons of biomaterials that are tailored not only for biofuel production, but also as replacements for fossil petroleum and plant oils and compounds in a diverse range of products from oleochemicals to cosmetics and foods.More info at email@example.com.
Billions of years of evolution have equipped algae with the capacity to produce oil by feeding on a wide variety of biomass. Solazyme’s technology is feedstock agnostic, which allows commercial scale production plants to be placed worldwide, adjacent to many non-food biomass sources and waste streams.
The long-term prospects for renewable oil production are excellent; businesses, environmental groups, policymakers and the public at large understand that there are larger and greater environmental and energy security needs driving the imperative for alternative sources of clean, domestically produced, high-quality oils.
Solazyme has produced a variety of renewable algal oil and materials based products including:
biodiesel that meets ASTM D6751, EN 14214, and U.S. Military specifications
renewable diesel that meets ASTM D975
renewable jet fuel that meets all 11 key tested criteria for ASTM D1655 (Jet-A1)
highly nutritious edible oils, flours, and powders
various consumer products including cosmetic and nutraceutical bioactives
