Ford and Recycled Polymeric Materials have partnered to make gaskets and seals made from recycled tires, soy, and other "biorenewable content."
Chrysler is replacing soy-based foam with recycled foam in its 2011 Grand Jeep Cherokee. Which is greener?
2010 Fusion Hybrid is Ford's latest vehicle to be outfitted with soy-based foam seat cushions, covered in recycled fabric. A car's environmental impact can be measured by more than mileage.
To reduce the risk of explosions and pollution, some utilities are switching from petroleum to vegetable oils to insulate transformers.
It's the very definition of tragic.
Soy, for the breakfast table and the car
From alternative fuels to soy-foam seats, carmakers are chipping away at the carbon trail their vehicles leave behind. And with Solegear's 100-percent natural polymer, we could start seeing car parts that are completely biodegradable.
Wash your car without water with this water, plant-derived surfactants (coconut and soy), a water-based polymer.
Group plans to study ways to make commercial aviation fuels out of plants including algae, rather than food sources such as corn and soy.
PetroAlgae, Bionavitas, and others bet that algae will replace soy as a feedstock for biodiesel. The question is which, out of many companies, will develop a cost-effective technology first.
