Construction gets healthy with soy

If you want your house and other buildings to look healthy and strong, feed them with soybean-based chemicals and products.

According to the United Soybean Board, products such as adhesives, coatings, lubricants and plastics made from soybeans are increasingly being incorporated in the construction industry.

“Soy is a great part of many products in the construction industry, and with more companies and government agencies going green, use of soy-based products should continue to climb,” says Bob Kirchner, USB director and a soybean farmer from Brewster, Minn. “A number of programs promote green buildings, and using soy in construction applications is a great way to achieve certification in such programs.”

Hopefully, termites, ants and other building insects don’t like the taste of edamame…
