For decades, the lowly little soy bean has been a mainstay for farmers in the agriculture community.

Lately this bean has seen a resurgence in its popularity. That popularity is now in a totally different direction, and that is becoming a major player in the home insulation arena.

It has been found that the soy bean makes a terrific substitute for the inorganic materials that have once dominated the foam insulation market.

The products that the soybean are displacing are oil products, use of CFC's or HCFC's and a multitude of other environmentally unfriendly products such as formeldehyde.

While most of the usage of soy-based products has been with foam-based insulation products that are spray applied, there has been breakthrough technology that will allow soy to be used for rigid insulation boards as well.

This has long been a market dominated by the polyurethane, polyisocyanurate, and the blown CFC and HCFC insulation board industry.

This will be a welcome relief as a viable eco-friendly alternative to these products.
