Renewable Fuels for the Future

Solazyme, in partnership with industry leaders, has developed advanced biofuels derived from microalgae that burn cleaner and perform better than petroleum-based fuels. Clean, renewable fuels derived from Solazyme’s oils provide answers to complex issues like fuel scarcity, energy security and environmental impact while fitting neatly into existing infrastructure, requiring no engine modifications for use.

 

SoladieselBD®

A 100% algae-derived biodiesel, Soladiesel BDR can be used with factory-standard diesel engines without modification. The fuel is fully compliant with the ASTM D 6751 specifications for Fatty Acid Methyl-Esther based (FAME) fuel that meets ASTM D 975, and significantly outperforms ultra-low sulfur diesel in total THC, carbon monoxide and particulate matter tailpipe emissions. Soladiesel BD also demonstrates better cold temperature properties than any commercially available biodiesel.

 
 

SoladieselRD®

A 100% algae-derived renewable diesel fuel, Soladiesel RDR is a drop-in alternative to standard diesel fuels that meets ASTM D 975. Chemically indistinguishable from petroleum-based diesel, the fuel’s tailpipe emissions also release fewer particulates and meet the new American Society for Testing and Materials (ASTM) standards for ultra-low sulfur diesel.

Solajet

A renewable aviation fuel refined from Solazyme’s algal oil, Solajet™ is the world’s first microbially-derived jet fuel to meet key industry specifications for commercial aviation, ASTM D 1655. Solajet is compatible with existing infrastructure while offering key benefits, including a faster, farther and greater payload; reduced wing heat stress; lower flammability; lower smoke emissions; longer storage life; and ultimately, lower maintenance cost.

 
 

Military Grade

Since 2008, Solazyme has partnered with the US Navy and the Department of Defense to develop, test and certify advanced drop-in renewable fuels that meet their strictest standards. Specifically, Solazyme has developed jet fuel, marine diesel and on-road diesel that have been rigorously tested by the U.S. Navy and shown to meet its HRD-76 and HRJ-5 military specifications. We are proud that Solazyme fuels were used as the reference fuels during the Navy’s successful multi-year certification process for renewable marine diesel fuel.
