Solazyme, Inc. (NASDAQ:SZYM), a renewable oil and bioproducts company, announced today financial results for the fourth quarter and fiscal year ended December 31, 2011 and recent key corporate highlights.

“In 2011, Solazyme made significant progress toward commercializing our valuable technology platform, including launching our Algenist skincare line and our Solazyme Roquette Nutritionals business,” said Jonathan Wolfson, CEO, Solazyme. "Recently, we commenced operations at our manufacturing plant in Peoria, Illinois and Solazyme Roquette Nutritionals commenced operations at its Phase 1 facility in France. Over the past year, we delivered on all of our partner commitments, signed MOUs and JDAs to meet the majority of our long-term feedstock needs, and progressed on important partnerships. We believe we’ve set the stage for commercial expansion in 2012 and 2013.”
