We make renewable oils and other bioproducts. Our proprietary technology uses
highly optimized microalgae in an industrial fermentation process to transform a
growing range of abundant plant-based sugars into high-value triglyceride oils
and other bioproducts. Globally, triglyceride oils touch our lives in numerous
ways; from food and industrial oils, to fuels and personal care products.
Our main commercial focus is on selling oil-based products, including tailored
oils and powdered oils, to companies that use them as intermediates and
ingredients. We have also invested in a consumer-focused business (Solazyme
Consumer Products) that commercializes branded products manufactured through our
various proprietary processes.
Our renewable products can replace or enhance products derived from the world�s
three existing sources of oils: petroleum, plants, and animal fats.
