Amyris Continues Successful Commercialization

Amyris increased to 400 the number of São Paulo city buses running on a blend of Diesel de Cana™

In 2014, Amyris plans to produce its fragrance oil molecule from its own manufacturing facility in Brazil, following recent successful scale up of its fragrance oil at specialty contract manufacturer

EMERYVILLE, Calif., Dec. 17, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Amyris, Inc. (Nasdaq:AMRS) announced today that the number of São Paulo city buses using Amyris Renewable Diesel, which is branded locally as Diesel de Cana™, has increased to 400. Separately, Amyris announced it has successfully produced its first fragrance oil for its partner Firmenich SA, a leading global flavors and fragrances company. In 2014, building on the successful scale-up of production at a specialty contract manufacturer, Amyris plans to produce this fragrance oil at Amyris's own industrial fermentation plant, located near the town of Brotas, São Paulo state in Brazil.

" From fuels to consumer care products, we continue to make progress on our commercialization of No Compromise ® renewable products that meet our customers' needs," said John Melo, President & CEO at Amyris. " We are not only building on our existing fuels market opportunities but also expanding our portfolio of renewable products, as we have shown with our successful production of a fragrance oil, the third molecule we have taken from lab to industrial scale following artemisinin and farnesene," added Melo.

Diesel de Cana Expansion in Brazil

At an event in Sao Paulo, Amyris is announcing, along with the São Paulo Public Transportation Authority (SPTrans) and its industry partners, an increase from 300 to 400 buses running on a blend of renewable diesel produced from locally-grown sugarcane using Amyris breakthrough fermentation technology. Also, the partners are announcing a trial of three buses that will run on 100% Amyris Renewable Diesel over the coming months.
