Solazyme Develops Vehicle-Ready Algae Biofuel
November 15, 2012 | 2 comments | about: SZYM

The algae biofuels sector got a shot in the arm this Tuesday when South San Francisco’s Solazyme (SZYM) began making its biofuels available for motorists at four Bay Area gas stations.

Solazyme’s product, called Biodiesel B20, is comprised of 20 percent algae and 80 percent petroleum. The best part is that any diesel-fueled vehicle can use this instead — and produce much less emissions as a result.

In Redwood City, this alternative fuel costs slightly less than $4.25/gallon, SFGate reports. That’s quite crucial since that price is nearly identical to the average cost of diesel fuel in the state of California — meaning the cleaner algae biofuel won’t cost an arm and a leg.
