The United Soybean Board (USB) is promoting some of the sustainable products that use soy as opposed to oil.
"Many people don't realize that soy can replace petroleum-based chemicals in building products," reads a statement from the USB.
Among those products with soy are:
• Carpet containing BioCel cushioned carpet backing from Universal Textile Technologies;
• Hardwood plywood containing Pure-Bond formaldehyde-free wood glue from Columbia Forest Products;
• ProClassic Interior Waterbased Acrylic-Alkyd interior paint from Sherwin-Williams; and
• Ultimate Polyurethane interior wood coating from Rust-Oleum.
The USB is the sole independent farmer-driven group n the U.S. that researches new uses for soy.
