On December 6, 2011, the Navy and the Agriculture Department announced the purchase of nearly a half million gallons of biofuel for an air-sea military exercise in 2012 from Solazyme and Dynamic Fuels LLC. Separately, Solazyme fuel was used for testing on a Spruance-class destroyer on a 185-mile trip from San Diego, CA, to Oxnard, CA. It was the Navy's largest alternative fuel demonstration to date. On November 14, 2011, Quantas announced it would launch its first commercial flight powered by Solazyme sustainable fuel in early 2012. On November 7, 2011, a United Airlines jet flew from Houston to Chicago with a 40 percent blend of Solazyme's biofuel. This was the first biofuel powered commercial flight in the United States. Additionally, United Continental Holdings Inc. (UAL) agreed to buy 20 million gallons of jet fuel each year from Solazyme for delivery beginning in 2014. On October 24, 2011, Solazyme Roquette Nutritionals announced that the company will begin to produce its microalgae-derived food ingredient, Whole Algalin Flour, at Roquette's commercial production plant in Lestrem, France. It is anticipated that the 300 metric ton Phase I facility will be completed on schedule by the end of 2011 and operational in early 2012. The facility will be expanded into a 5000 metric ton Phase II facility in 2012. Lastly, in October 2011, Solazyme announced the continuation and expansion of its relationship with Unilever.
On October 31, 2011, the D-Wave quantum computer purchased by Lockheed Martin was installed at the University of Southern California's Information Sciences Institute. The D-Wave quantum computer is optimized for data analysis and pattern recognition problems. The system is also designed to handle machine-learning applications. Additionally, D-Wave's Geordie Rose was named Canadian Innovator of the year for 2011.
Finally, shareholders of Harris & Harris Group may be interested in watching a video from the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) that demonstrates the water-proofing capabilities of HzO, one of our most recent investments. In the video, a telephone, coated with HzO's water-blocking material is placed in a bowl of water and it continues operating under water.
