Solazyme and AkzoNobel Expand Partnership in Surface Chemistry

05-08-2014: Solazyme, Inc. and AkzoNobel have expanded their previously announced joint development agreement. The expansion provides for funded product development, as well as key terms for a multi-year supply agreement targeting annual supply of up to 10,000 MT of renewable Tailored™ algal oils pending successful product development.

The parties expect that Solazyme’s algal oil for the new proprietary surfactant contemplated under the joint development agreement would be able to replace both petroleum- and palm oil-derived chemicals. The target product is designed to have improved functional and environmental performance, as well as a lower overall cost to AkzoNobel.

Product development is expected to commence immediately, and the parties anticipate entering into a definitive supply agreement as they near completion of product development.
