Oils from the soybean are used to create an environmentally friendly bio-polyol alternative to crude oil-based petro-polyol. The bio-polyol is blended to reduce the use of petro-polyol by 30%. Creating bio-polyols reduces total energy demand by 23% and non-renewable energy demand by 61% when compared to petro-polyol. This results in a total of 36% reduction in harmful emissions. Through photosynthesis, the total carbon emissions are completely offset by the soybean crops resulting in a carbon footprint of zero.
