Sherwin-Williams is developing biobased paints using soybeans. According to the U.S. Department of Agriculture, which manages the BioPreferred Program to increase the purchase and use of biobased products, the company has used 320,000 lbs of soybean oil and 250,000 lbs of polyethylene terephthalate (PET), and eliminated 1,000 barrels of oil in manufacturing the new paint formula. The agency says this technology has the potential to eliminate millions of pounds of VOC emissions while supporting the recycling of multi-million pounds of PET each year.
