Airable Research Labs Believes Soybeans are the Answer

Ohio’s largest export – the soybean – is already used in many fields, from the creation of biodiesel to crayons. The Ohio Soybean Council has invested in Airable Research Lab with the goal of furthering the innovative uses of the soybean. They are looking for direction from industries and are developing solutions as needed.

Airable Research explains that soybeans are great for providing high-quality protein as well as being a renewable alternative to petroleum. Recently, they worked with Roof Maxx to design a plant-based solution to rejuvenate roofs and make them last longer. Following this, they connected with Franklin International to help develop a plant-based, pressure-sensitive adhesive. 

Although replacing petroleum applications is a meaningful opportunity, they really want to expand the known applications for soybeans. They are hoping more industries will come forward looking for plant-based solutions. Airable Research believes soybeans are versatile enough to be the solution to many problems.
