"Solazyme, Inc., a renewable oil production company and leading algal synthetic biology company, will feature a Jeep Liberty fueled by the world?s first algal-based renewable diesel, SoladieselRDTM, at CALSTART Target 2030: Solutions to Secure California's Transportation Energy and Climate Future in Sacramento, Calif. The fuel, which is a drop-in replacement for standard petrodiesel (#2 Diesel), has passed American Society for Testing and Materials (ASTM) D975 specifications and will also be on display at the event. Both SoladieselRDTM and SoladieselBDTM, a FAME biodiesel that meets the (ASTM) D6751 specifications, have been successfully road tested unblended (100 percent) for thousands of miles in standard unmodified diesel engines. The Jeep, which will be available for rides throughout the event, illustrates the compatibility of the fuel with current infrastructure"

Thats a good news for Algae Energy Industry!!!
