Startup from Columbus, Ohio, has developed a new polymer based on soy, which can replace up to 40% of the crude oil used in the production of polypropylene and polyethylene in parts used in construction.
The company is called Biobent Polymers: experts first started talking about it in 2012, and now she is preparing to open the first production line.
This is only a small part of the green revolution in the production of artificial biovolume, happening before our eyes. Research firm Lucintel predicts an increase in the production of composites based on natural fibers 11.2% between 2014 and 2019. Such materials are not only environmentally cleaner, but also cheaper synthetic multiplied in the cost of raw material is from 3% to 18%. published
