Solazyme, Inc. manufactures and sells renewable oils and other bioproducts. The company’s proprietary technology uses highly optimized microalgae in an industrial fermentation process to transform a range of abundant plant-based sugars into high-value triglyceride oils and other bioproducts. Products The company’s primary products are the targeted outputs from its processes and include Tailored and encapsulated oils, powdered products and other bioproducts. The company is in the process of commercializing its primary products as either Intermediates/Ingredients that include branded products, such as Encapso, AlgaVia Flour and AlgaVia Protein, or as Personal Care Products that include branded products, such as its Algenist skin and personal care products. The company’s Intermediate/Ingredient products include Tailored oils, powdered oils, and other closely related products targeted at customers in the Industrial Products, Food Products and Personal Care Products market. Intermediates/Ingredients The company is in the process of commercializing two main classes of products, Tailored oils and Powdered oils. High-value oils include the Oleic Family that offers high levels of oleic acid and low levels of polyunsaturates and/or saturates; the Lauric Family that offers compositions of fatty acid chain lengths that are differentiated from palm kernel and coconut oils by specific targeted fatty acids between C10 and C14; the Mid-Chain Family that target optimized levels of C8 (caprylic acid) and C10 (capric acid); Structured Fats that has enabled the production of an algal butter with a structure similar to cocoa butter; and Long Chain Family that includes the development of highly unique oils with high levels of erucic acid (C22:1) with the benefit of not having to segregate high erucic rapeseed oil from the food supply. Whole algal products include AlgaVia Whole Algal Flour that is a lipid rich ingredient that could replace or reduce dairy fat, egg yolks and oil in recipes that reduces fat, cholesterol and calories with the added benefits of texture enhancement, water binding and flavor delivery; AlgaVia Whole Algal Protein that is a vegan protein source that is non-allergenic, gluten-free and a sustainable source of high quality protein; and Encapsulated Oils that is a family of product that offers targeted friction inhibitors, delivering lubrication on demand while providing biodegradability and other environmental benefits. Industrial Products: Powders and Oils Powders The company’s powdered oils products are an alternative application for its proprietary microalgae, in that the oil is not extracted but retained within the cell wall. Encapsulated Oils In 2014, the company began selling its intermediate and ingredient products more broadly to customers in the oil field drilling fluids market with the launch of Encapso. The company’s initial industrial use for its encapsulated oil technology is as a biodegradable lubricant additive for drilling fluids. Oils The company’s Tailored oils are triglyceride oils that feature in multiple industrial markets. Its oleic oils (including high oleic and high stability high oleic) provide sustainable solutions within the food, lubricant, functional fluid and oleochemical markets. Specialty Chemicals and Personal Care The company’s Tailored oils platform enables replacement and enhancement of petroleum, plant, or animal derived oils that are used as raw materials for the chemicals industry. The company focuses its initial Tailored oils for the industrial markets in two distinct target areas: Oleochemicals are chemicals that are derived from natural oils, typically from plant or animal fats. Oleochemicals appear in the industrial, home and personal care industries in applications such as surfactants, detergents, soaps, cosmetics, lubricants and many others. Functional Fluids span a range of non-fuel industrial applications, such as lubricants, heat transfer fluids, antifreeze, dielectric fluids, defoamers, solvents, and drying agents. Fuels Within the fuels market, its renewable oils could be sold as replacements for materials th
