Solix BioSystems

Solix BiofuelsSolix BioSystems, based in Fort Collins, Colo., is an alternative energy technology company focused on biofuels derived from algae. The company has developed technologies to produce oil derived from algae cost effectively at commercial production levels.

Solix BioSystems is an intellectual descendant of the U.S. Department of Energy’s Aquatic Species Program, which started in 1978 to explore ways to produce biodiesel from algae. In early 2006, Solix BioSystems was created to continue this work, with a goal of creating a commercially viable biofuel that will help solve climate change and petroleum scarcity, without competing with global food supply.
