Amyris, Inc. (NASDAQ:AMRS), a leading renewable chemicals and fuels company, today unveiled EvoShieldTM, its new product line of industrial lubricants. The announcement was made during a speech delivered by Amyris CEO John Melo at the Infineon Raceway of Sonoma's inaugural Accelerating Sustainable Performance Summit.

EvoShield lubricants are a family of renewably-sourced solutions designed to satisfy the most advanced lubrication challenges without compromising quality or performance. EvoShield lubricants will be formulated from NovaSpecTM renewably-sourced synthetic base oils, derived from Amyris's Biofene®and produced by Novvi, Amyris's joint venture with Brazil's Cosan.

"Novvi's high-performance base oils, combined with advanced additive systems, will enable Amyris EvoShield products to perform in a range of applications under extreme conditions of temperature, moisture, dirt and wear, while improving upon key environmental metrics including renewability, toxicity and biodegradability when compared with petroleum-sourced lubricants," said John Melo, CEO of Amyris. "We are on track to begin production this year and to redefine performance for the lubricants industry."

These lubricants will provide ideal protection for equipment across a broad range of industrial applications, including hydraulic, compressor, turbine and gear oils, as well as specific formulations for marine and food-grade requirements.

"The Infineon Summit provides the ideal environment and platform to announce our new line of renewably-sourced, high-performance industrial lubricants," said Jim Richardson, president of lubricants and fuels for Amyris. "Motorsports require the highest-performing products to deliver under challenging and extreme conditions. These performance expectations are consistent with the needs of our industrial customers in a variety of different applications and we're excited to introduce EvoShield's capabilities at an event that emphasizes sustainability and highlights our environmental improvements over petroleum-based lubricants."

As the Official Renewable Fuels Provider of the Raceway, Amyris also showcased the performance of its renewable diesel during the summit by powering a 2011 Audi Q7 TDI around the track. This demonstration marked the first on-road operation of a vehicle fueled by 100 percent neat Amyris renewable diesel.

Amyris is scaling its Biofene production in Brazil, Europe and the United States through five production arrangements, including manufacturing agreements with Antibióticos S.A., Biomin do Brasil Nutri?ão Animal Ltda., Paraíso Bioenergia S.A., Tate & Lyle and a joint venture with Usina São Martinho S.A., one of the largest sugar and ethanol producers in Brazil. Amyris has also established finishing capabilities with Glycotech, Inc. in North Carolina.
