Biobased Building with Soy
Brought to you by U.S. Soy

Everyone wants to live and work in buildings that are sustainable and healthy. However, making common construction materials such as concrete and glass generates carbon emissions, and many paints, adhesives, and plastics are made with fossil fuels.

A growing number of biobased building materials are becoming commercially available, and soy is one of the ingredients at the heart of these innovations. Learn how soy-based products can be used in a variety of environmentally friendly building materials, including roofing materials, concrete, asphalt, paint, plywood, and artificial turf.

Key Objectives:
  • How a soy-based concrete treatment extends the lifetime of pavement
  • Why using plywood made with a soy-based adhesive helps get your building closer to a sustainability certification
  • How soybean oil can be used to make artificial turf
