Solazyme Selected for National Institute of Standards and Technology Award
Date:9/27/2007

$2 Million Grant to Support Development of Renewable Replacement for Light

Sweet Crude Oil

SOUTH SAN FRANCISCO, Calif., Sept. 27 /PRNewswire/ -- Solazyme, a bioscience company pioneering biofuels and health/wellness products from microalgae, has received a $2 million Advanced Technology Program Award from the National Institute of Standards and Technology to develop a biopetroleum derived from marine microorganisms.

Under the program, Solazyme will accelerate development of a renewable, domestically produced light sweet crude oil, or biopetroleum, which is fully compatible with the vast existing petroleum industry infrastructure that refines, distributes, and markets petroleum products for transportation, heating, power generation and petrochemical applications. Development of the biopetroleum technology requires efficient industrial scale bioproduction of pure, long-chain hydrocarbons. The ATP award will advance the achievement of major technical milestones toward commercialization of biopetroleum.

"We are pleased to receive external peer reviewed validation of our progress in developing a commercially viable biopetroleum," said Arthur Grossman, chief of genetics for Solazyme, Senior Scientist at the Carnegie Institution, Courtesy Professor at Stanford University and Darbaker prize recipient. "We look forward to advancing this project and adding additional technical expertise to our team as we continue to further the science and the future applications of algal-derived bioenergy."

Solazyme is currently developing biofuels and health/wellness products with microalgae and producing next generation biofuels at the semi-commercial scale. Biopetroleum complements Solazyme's biofuel portfolio, which also includes biodiesel, renewable diesel and renewable (bio)jet fuel and leverages Solazyme's unique expertise in the field of microalgae bioengineering.
