Global News / New Tech. Report (if necessary) – 1:00

A San Francisco based, bio-technology company Solazyme, which is developing techniques for converting vats of algae into car and plane fuel, will also exploit its manufacturing processes to make oils for other industries, including the food industry.

The company is already working on edible oils. Ideally these oils could provide greater health benefits, costs less, and be more environmentally friendly to create than current cooking oils. According to Harrison Dillon, president and chief technology officer, Solazyme can provide tailor-made oils.

The ability to shift into new markets largely revolves around the nature of algae itself in the processes employed by the company. First, the creatures; algae are seriously greasy. The North Sea oilfield and other large deposits are the fossilized remnants of algae blooms from hundreds of millions of years ago.

What's interesting is that algae are the original oil producers, not dinosaurs, as most people believe.
