Soy- and bio-based products are rooted in sustainable farming practices. The crops are abundant, return each season, and do not require extractive techniques like petroleum- or mineral-based products.
Using soy-based and other bio-based inputs in your products helps support the agricultural economy in Illinois and nationwide.
Utilizing soy and other bio-based inputs reduces demand for petroleum-derived products and provides momentum for the switch to a more environmentally-friendly and sustainable construction and infrastructure economy.
