Ohio’s largest export is already used in biodiesel, candles, crayons, ink, animal feedstock, industrial lubricants, bio-composite building materials and more. Now, Airable Research Lab, a one-of-a-kind lab funded by the Ohio Soybean Council and housed on the campus of Ohio Wesleyan University in Delaware, Ohio, is developing even more and innovative uses that will increase market demand for soybeans. The same little bean that provides high-quality protein also serves as a renewable, environmentally friendly alternative to petroleum. As such, soybean oil can be used in products that rejuvenate aging roofs, make flip flops more flexible, protect wood floors and keep hands cleaner and softer during cold, dry months. It’s an ideal material for use in sealants, insulation, and foam for furniture and autos.
