"We are pleased to be recognized for our development of fuels and industrial chemicals from renewable resources. Our focus on algal biotechnology will enable rapid development and deployment of facilities capable of producing commercial scale quantities of biodiesel," said Jonathan Wolfson, President of Solazyme. Harrison Dillon, CEO of Solazyme, added "The use of renewable resources for production of biofuels that are compatible with the existing transportation fuel infrastructure and that meet existing fuel standards is crucially important for rapid large scale adoption. We are excited to make a major contribution to reducing our dependency on imported oil and creating new employment opportunities for Americans."
