 500 nominations from venture investors, investment bankers and other

     "The AlwaysOn GoingGreen 100 companies will accelerate the global

 hundreds of clean technology companies will be foundational to the next
 wave of economic growth in California and beyond. My congratulations to
 each AlwaysOn GoingGreen 100 winner -- these are the companies which we
 predict will have the greatest market traction, strongest innovation and
 most game-changing approaches this year."
     Solazyme and the GoingGreen 100 Top Private Companies for 2007 will be

 in Davis from September 10 -- 12. GoingGreen is a two-and-a-half-day
 executive gathering that highlights the significant impact clean
 technologies have on new economic growth and in sustainable use of natural
 resources. The idea behind the GoingGreen 100 top private companies list is
 to identify the most promising entrepreneurial opportunities and

     Solazyme is a leading biotechnology company focused on the engineering
 and optimization of algae for production of biofuels and health and
 wellness materials. Solazyme has developed algal strains with dramatically
 increased biofuel and industrial chemical production capabilities. This
 novel technology results in large reductions in CO2 and other pollutants

     "We are pleased to be recognized for our development of fuels and
 industrial chemicals from renewable resources. Our focus on algal
 biotechnology will enable rapid development and deployment of facilities
 capable of producing commercial scale quantities of biodiesel," said
 Jonathan Wolfson, President of Solazyme. Harrison Dillon, CEO of Solazyme,
 added "The use of renewable resources for production of biofuels that are
 compatible with the existing transportation fuel infrastructure and that
 meet existing fuel standards is crucially important for rapid large scale
 adoption. We are excited to make a major contribution to reducing our
 dependency on imported oil and creating new employment opportunities for
 Americans."
