Airable Research Lab has generated broad-spectrum herbicidal solutions for weed and cover-crop termination using naturally derived, renewable components. As the current herbicide market is expected to grow from the current $40 billion to $50 billion by 2027, the expansion of this marketplace offers […]

Airable Research Lab, in partnership with LFS Chemistry, has developed a non-phosphorous alternative to its soy-based scale-inhibiting additive. The scale inhibition industry has been historically dominated by phosphorous-based chemistries. Currently, overexploitation of phosphorous—along with a pan[…]

Airable is developing a series of bio-based epoxy alternatives to hazardous industrial feedstocks, such as bisphenol-A (BPA), whose pervasiveness raises health concerns. Airable’s innovative bio-based chemicals are derived from soybean oil and use polyketonate functionality to grant reactivity simil[…]

Airable has formulated a soy-based, non-isocyanate polyurethane dispersion that shows good adhesion to wood, leather, and aluminum metal. The waterborne resin has no volatile organic compounds (VOCs). Airable has investigated the soy dispersion as a coating and is exploring other applications such a[…]

Researchers have demonstrated the use of soybean oil in developing eco-friendly, flame-retardant polyurethane (PU) foams. PU foams are overtly flammable, and when they combust (or decompose), they form carbon monoxide, hydrogen cyanide, and other toxic products. Researchers developed soy-based polyo[…]

Airable Research Lab has developed a soy-based additive that inhibits corrosion in water-based systems, showing as much as 89% corrosion inhibition in in-house studies. Corrosion inhibitors are necessary across industries, from manufacturing to construction, to protect metal equipment and materials […]

Airable has synthesized a soy-based antistatic additive (ASA) for polyurethane coatings, which are inherently electrically insulative. ASAs are added to materials to reduce or eliminate static electricity, which may be desirable for aesthetics, safety, or product performance, depending on the applic[…]

Airable Research Lab has synthesized a soy-based odorant for leak detection in carbon dioxide (CO2) pipelines. Typical odorants in the industry are mercaptans, which present a range of hazards and health concerns. The Airable product is safe for workers and the environment.[…]

Airable Research Lab has synthesized a bio-based cationic surfactant that can replace more toxic products. The Airable product provides a secondary environmental benefit: a unique technology that sequesters greenhouse gases by consuming CO2 in synthesis.[…]

Airable Research Lab has synthesized a soy-based shrinkage-reducing additive (SRA) for concrete that can replace petroleum-based SRAs in formulations.[…]

Airable Research Lab has developed a soy-based replacement for the petroleum-based solvents in roof patch leak repair consumer products. Leveraging the power of soy, our roof patch formulation replaces ~25% of the raw materials sourced from petroleum and is low in volatile organic compounds (VOCs). […]

Airable Research Lab has synthesized a soy-based wax that can replace carnauba wax in formulations. Carnauba wax is sourced from the carnauba palm tree, which grows only in Brazil. Carnauba has useful properties such as a high melting point, UV ray protection, water resistance, and extreme density, […]

Airable Research Lab has synthesized carbonated soy-based products. These materials transform carbon dioxide into useful bio-based cyclic carbonates that may be used in non-isocyanate polyurethanes. Our carbonated soy product has high (78%) bio renewable content and sequesters CO2, providing an exce[…]

Airable Research Lab has developed a urethane-modified soy-based fatty acid ester that can substitute for petroleum-based chemicals, enabling a variety of low-cost and low-toxicity products.[…]

With the onset of COVID-19, Airable Research Lab is motivated to support our community during a time of uncertainty and stress. The importance of disinfection prompted our team to develop a liquid soap made from high oleic soybeans. The soybean oil leaves the hands feeling soft and moisturized, even[…]

The Soy-PK reactive oligomer cross-linker resin (Soy-PK) offers a practical, cost-effective drop-in replacement for epoxy resins containing bisphenol-A (BPA). Such resins are widely used in coatings, especially in metal beverage and food container coatings that present serious mutagenicity and healt[…]

Soybean-oil-based antioxidant dermal care cream, enriched with Vitamin E, green tea extract, goji berry extract, and natural preservatives, provides a good shelf life without compromising anti-microbial/fungal properties.[…]

An advanced soybean-based fish feed, EnzoMeal addresses a key impediment to the widespread expansion of aquaculture, the fastest-growing food production sector. Historically, fisheries have used fishmeal as fish feed, but the primary ingredients—wild fish and shrimp—are rapidly dwindling resources, […]


Battelle, in partnership with the Ohio Soybean Council, has developed a soy-based alternative and is looking for a commercial partner to license the technology. The global surfactant market is set to grow at about 4.6% through 2023, when it will reach $1.09 billion.*[…]

The Ohio Soybean Council (OSC) has partnered with METSS Corporation to prove that vodka, the purest of spirits, can be produced using soybeans or soybean meal. The result is an exceptionally smooth vodka for a market that seeks innovation.[…]

Airable Research Lab has developed a urethane-modified soy-based fatty acid ester that can substitute for petroleum-based chemicals, enabling a variety of low-cost and low-toxicity products. SAXETHANE has potential applications as an additive for stoving and air-drying enamels, thixotropic modifiers[…]
