The Ohio Soybean Council seeks collaborators interested in co-developing industrial applications using high-oleic soybean oil.
Soybean farmers are growing increasing quantities of high-oleic soybeans which produce high-oleic soybean oil. High-oleic soybean oil (HSBO) withstands higher temperatures before it degrades. A straightforward use of this oil is for lubrication. But other industrial applications are also of interest to drive demand for soybeans.
The Ohio Soybean Council is looking for collaborators interested in developing this biobased source of oleic acid for commercial applications.
Key success Criteria
Opportunity should preferably have:
Differentiated functional benefit of HSBO
A clear path for product development
Acceptable prospect for market demand (or at least growth potential)
High likelihood to be manufacturable
Include, but are not limited to:
Paint and coatings, polymer precursor, adhesives, chemical derivatives
Approaches not of Interest
Possible uses such as lubricants, grease, surfactants, alkyd resins and candles are less interesting as sponsor is already working on these solutions.
