BASF and Solazyme, Inc Announces Launch the First Commercial Microalgae-Derived Betaine Surfactant

BASF and Solazyme, Inc. announced the launch of the first commercial surfactant derived from microalgae oil, a high performance algal betaine for use in home and personal care applications. Commercialized by BASF under the trade name Dehyton® AO 45, algal betaine is a betaine surfactant made from renewable microalgae oil. The new algal betaine is a high- performance alternative to amidopropyl betaine in products that require rich and gentle foam such as shampoos, liquid soaps, hand dishwashing liquids, and other applications. Amidopropyl betaines are amphoteric surfactants increasingly used in cosmetic, toiletry and home care applications due to their vast benefits and are known to have: good detergency, good foam properties and foam stabilization, hard water compatibility, mildness to skin and hair, ability to reduce irritation of anionic systems, viscosity building, conditioning effect, stability at a broad range of pH, and excellent biodegradability. Dehyton® AO 45 is produced with Solazyme AlgaPur™ Microalgae Oils. AlgaPur™ Oils are produced with Solazyme’s technology in a matter of days, using a highly controlled fermentation process to convert sugarcane into oils of the high purity and performance. AlgaPur™ Microalgae Oils are produced with low carbon, water and land use impact.

BASF SE Reports Earnings Results for the Second Quarter and Six Months of 2015; Provides Earnings Guidance for the Year 2015

BASF SE reported earnings results for the second quarter and six months of 2015. For the quarter, the company’s sales grew by 3% to €19.1 billion compared with the same quarter of the previous year. Sales volumes grew by 2% compared with the second quarter of 2014. This was predominantly through a sharp increase in volumes in the Oil & Gas segment. Income from operations (EBIT) before special items rose by €31 million to around €2.0 billion, largely through the significantly increased contribution from the Functional Materials & Solutions segment as well as lower expenses in other. EBIT grew by €106 million to €2.0 billion in the second quarter compared with the same period of the previous year. At €1.3 billion, net income matched the level of the second quarter of 2014. Earnings per share were €1.38 in the second quarter of 2015, compared with €1.37 in the same period of 2014. In the first half of 2015, sales grew by 3% to €39.1 billion compared with the first half of 2014, despite slightly declining sales volumes in the chemicals business. At around €4.1 billion, EBIT before special items matched the level of the first half of the previous year. The oil price-related decline in the Oil & Gas segment dampened earnings, while the Functional Materials & Solutions and Chemicals segments provided support through greater contributions. Cash provided by operating activities in the first half of 2015 rose by €2.4 billion to €5.1 billion. For the full year 2015, the company expects somewhat weaker growth for the global economy as well as global industrial and chemical production than was foreseen six months ago. Despite continuing high risks, the company expects slightly increase sales in a volatile and challenging environment. The company is striving for EBIT before special items that matches the level of the previous year.
