Bob Brentin Presents at USA Rubber Industry Forum

On July, 2016 at the USA Rubber Industry Forum, Bob Brentin presented the use of soy-based products in the rubber and elastomers industry on behalf of the United Soybean Board, a U.S. farmer-funded organization working with industry to commercialize industrial applications using chemical derivatives from soy. The presentation described the use of raw materials derived from renewable resources which is gaining momentum in the chemicals and materials industry for product differentiation at competitive economics with a more favorable environmental impact. Discussion of recent developments included using modified soy oil as a process aid for rubber compounds, using soy oil-based polymers in rubber compounds and polymerizing soy oil monomers to make thermoplastic elastomers.
