Solazyme to Expand Renewable-Oil Production With Bunge, ADM

November 14, 2012

Solazyme Inc. (SZYM:US), which makes oil products from sugar-consuming algae, will expand production capacity through partnerships with Bunge Ltd. (BG:US) and Archer- Daniels-Midland Co.

The company plans to open a plant in 2014 at an ADM facility in Iowa. It will also triple the planned output from an existing venture with Bunge, according to e-mailed statements today from South San Francisco, California-based Solazyme.

The ADM plant will produce 20,000 metric tons of oil in 2014, and may eventually expand to 100,000 tons a year. Bunge and Solazyme are building a plant in Brazil that will be able to make 100,000 tons a year starting in the fourth quarter of 2013, and Bunge will use the same technology to generate a total of as much as 300,000 tons a year at multiple facilities by 2016.
