Ten years ago, when Harrison Dillon and his partners founded Solazyme in a garage in Palo Alto, CA, their goal was to create clean, renewable diesel fuel from algae. And so they did. But it was clear after a couple of years that they needed to find other applications for algae-based biofuel to make their business fly.

The concept came from Jared Ficker, the man......read more
