Corn and beans are on the menu for sustainability

 

As the song says, it's not easy being green. We're trying, though.

Our Envirez™ bio-derived resin is the first resin that uses a substantial amount of soybean oil and corn-derived ethanol in its formulation. Thanks to these renewable resources, this unsaturated polyester resin is greener than traditional products, while meeting the same performance and processing requirements as 100 percent petroleum-based products.

Ashland's development of Envirez resin has grown the product family to include products with higher renewable content and recycled raw materials. Envirez resin is being used for boatbuilding and architectural applications.
