New soy-based products pulled into the market

"Biodiesel gets most of the publicity, but the hottest thing going right now is polyol," Todd Allen said. Allen is a soybean farmer from West Memphis, Ark., and New Uses chairman of the United Soybean Board (USB).

Polyol is chemically modified soybean oil that competes with petroleum based polyol in a variety of products.

"We are able to substitute soy polyol for a petroleum polyol and still maintain all of the characteristics for whatever product you are making," Allen said. "This year polyol will be the biggest user of soybeans behind biodiesel."
