Title: Affordable, Petroleum-Free Green Resins for Manufacture of Composite Building Materials
Agency: USDA
Contract: N/A
Award Amount: $89,719.00
 

Abstract:

Pressed wood products, such as furniture and cabinetry, are typically made with formaldehyde-based resins. These resins present two significant drawbacks - 1)there is significant concern about the health effects of formaldehyde and 2)formaldehyde resins are made from petroleum-derived products, a naturally limited resource that contributes to carbon output. There is also a growing global concern around ready availability of wood and wood fibers which has driven the industry to investigate alternative sources. E2e Material's green composite material platform represents a revolutionary opportunity to shift many products used by humanity today away from non-renewable, petroleum-based products to materials produced from annually-renewable agricultural products providing a safer, cost-effective solution with higher performance. E2e Materials is proposing the development of affordable soy protein-based green plastic resins for use in manufacturing green composites constructed from soy protein resins and agricultural fibers such as jute, flax, and bamboo. The proposed green composites will replace pressed wood products, such as particle board, hardwood plywood paneling, oriented strand board, and medium density fiberboard.
