olazyme, Inc. has signed a research and deve- lopment agreement with Unilever to develop
oil derived from algae for use in soaps and other
personal care products. The agreement follows the culmination of a yearlong collaboration between So- lazyme and Unilever, in which Solazyme’s renewable algal oils were tested successfully in Unilever product formulations. “Algal oil provides important benefits in personal care applications,” explained Jonathan Wolfson, CEO of Solazyme. “Solazyme’s algal oils can help meet the growing demand for completely renewable, natural and sustainable personal care
products. Unilever is an acknowledged world leader in sustainability and we are honored to be working with them to develop this new renewable source of natural oils for their world class consumer products.”
Furthermore, Solazyme, took home the number one position in the Sustainable Biofuels Technology cate-
gory at the 2nd Annual Sustainable Biofuels Awards.
The awards, which were announced March 16 in Amsterdam at the World Biofuels Markets confe- rence, offered companies the ability to showcase significant accomplishments in the biofuels industry.
