BP Biofuels is a leading global biofuels player and since 2006 has announced investments of more than $2 billion in biofuels research, development and operations. We focus on three strategic areas: producing biofuels from the best feedstocks available today, including Brazilian sugar cane; investing in cellulosic biofuels made from 'for purpose' energy grasses; and developing the advanced molecule biobutanol, which can help biofuels to break through the blend wall. BP has also committed $500 million over 10 years in the Energy Bioscience Institute, where biotechnologists are investigating applications of biotechnology to energy.
In October 2009, the World Refining Association named BP Biofuels as Biofuels Corporation of the Year.

Solazyme, Inc. is a renewable oil and bioproducts company that has pioneered a revolutionary biotechnology platform that harnesses the oil-producing capabilities of microalgae in a scalable, reliable, and cost effective manner. Solazyme’s renewable products can replace or enhance oils derived from the world’s three existing sources – petroleum, plants and animal fats.
Creating the first sugar-to-oil bridge, Solazyme’s technology can transform low-cost plant-based sugars into high-value tailored oils. Solazyme’s technology allows them to optimize oil profiles- or ‘tailor’ them- with different carbon chain lengths, saturation levels and functional groups to modify important oil characteristics, allowing them to address specific customer requirements, while offering superior performance characteristics when compared to conventional oils.
Solazyme’s technology uses standard industrial fermentation equipment to efficiently scale and accelerate microalgae’s natural oil production time to just a few days. By feeding their proprietary oil-producing microalgae plant sugars in dark fermentation tanks, the company is in effect utilizing “indirect photosynthesis” in contrast to the traditional open-pond approaches.
Well beyond proof-of-concept, Solazyme is entering into commercial production, producing hundreds of thousands of gallons of renewable oil and products for markets including: fuels, chemicals, nutrition, and skin/personal care.
