could be sold as replacements for materials that are derived from petroleum or other conventional oils, or refined and sold as drop-in replacements for marine, motor vehicle, and jet fuels. The company could either manufacture the end product by contracting with refiners to produce fuels of targeted specifications, or sell its unrefined oils to refiners. Near term, its focus in fuels is providing oils that would be used as fuel additives and blendstocks. Fuels and additives derived from the company’s oils are compatible with the existing refining and distribution infrastructure and could be used with factory-standard engines without modifications. In addition, the company has partnership with Volkswagen. The company’s fuels products range from drop-in replacement fuels, such as SoladieselRD for on-road applications and Solajet for aviation use, to fuel additives and blendstocks. It has entered and completed various large-scale programs with the Department of Defense and has delivered approximately 1 million liters of marine diesel and jet fuels to the U.S. Navy under multiple contracts. The company partnered with United Airlines to provide renewable jet fuel for the first ever commercial flight utilizing microbe-derived biofuel. It intends to continue cultivating partnerships to develop tailored oil applications with a fuels focus, as well as to deliver fuels or fuel blends that span marine, on-road, and aviation industries. Foods The company has developed microalgae-based food ingredients, including tailored oils and whole algal powders that improve the nutritional profile and functionality of food products for consumer packaged goods (CPG) companies. The products provide a range of health benefits while also offering various functional benefits, such as improved taste and texture, structuring, stability, and shelf life along with formulation and process flexibility. The company intends to commercialize its food products through a combination of direct sales, sales through distributors, and sales through partners to nutraceutical and CPG companies, food service providers, and private labels. It is also developing a range of next generation food oils and whole foods to serve new market opportunities and applications. Tailored Food Oils The company is developing market opportunities for a range of tailored food oils that have the potential to improve upon conventionally utilized specialty fats and oils. Its tailored oil food ingredients offer various health and functional benefits. Major initial markets for its tailored oils include spray oil, premium oil, and processed food applications. Its high oleic oil is rich in monounsaturated triglycerides and low in polyunsaturated triglycerides. Powdered Ingredients In addition to optimizing the composition of oils, the company has developed novel methods of preparing powdered forms of triglyceride oils. Its powdered ingredients include whole algal cells, including the cell wall and the oils and other cellular products held within the whole algal cell. The company’s powdered ingredients could be seen in its whole algal flour and whole algal protein products. It has fulfilled the regulatory requirements for each of these products in the U.S. and Europe, and both of these products could be sold into food applications in those jurisdictions. These products contain whole algal cells that have been dried and processed for use as powdered food ingredients. The whole algal flour and whole algal protein products have been formulated to improve the nutritional profile and functionality of food products. With these products, the company could offer CPG customers myriad benefits, some of which include protein fortification, reduced saturated fat, reduced trans-fat and lower calories. The company’s microalgae-based powdered food ingredients could improve or replace emulsifiers, fats and oils, polysaccharides, oligosaccharides, and proteins. When used as a partial or complete replacement for ingredients, such as eggs, butter, cream, and oil, its products enable CPG companies, and other food processors, to offer products with nutrition, taste and texture parity an
