Navy Testing For Microbial Based Fuel

Solazyme : 26 October, 2010  (Application Story)
A US Navy command boat has been the test subject for the new Soladiesel distillate fuel based on 100% algae derived products
Solazyme’s CEO and co-founder Jonathan Wolfson has released the following statement after the United States Navy conducted a full power demonstration of Solazyme’s algae-based fuel on a Navy Riverine Command Boat at the Naval Base in Norfolk, Virginia:

“Solazyme is proud to provide the first microbially derived ship fuel used by the Navy in a military boat. The United States Navy’s commitment to reducing dependence on fossil fuels has taken another step forward today and we applaud their leadership. We are honored to be a part of Navy's efforts to reduce its reliance on fossil fuels.”

Solazyme’s technology will help the Department of Defense reduce its carbon footprint, combat global climate change and lead in the development of clean and renewable energy sources. Reducing our dependence on foreign oil is a national security imperative, and Solazyme’s technology focuses on producing an abundant, domestic and renewable source for oil and fuels. Solazyme’s Soladiesel diesel fuels meet ASTM, EU, and certain military specifications.
