Building roads and growing demand

A new soy-based concrete is protecting roadways while building demand for growers. It is called PoreShield, and it is now being applied to Indiana bridges ahead of winter.

United Soybean Board’s Mark Seib speaks with RFD-TV’s own John Jenkinson on the impact of this “new use project” and how PoreShield will benefit farmers.

“PoreShield is a concrete enhancer, which is basically a spray protectant that increases the life of bridges or roads...,” Seib states. “The demand for soybeans is the main ingredient in this... on average 200 bushels of soybeans are used for every two-lane mile of concrete highway treated with PoreShield.”

Iowa researchers are looking into soy-based asphalt.
