North Dakota scientists develop new bio-based coatings and resins

Improved properties for green materials

Researchers from North Dakota State University (NDSU) have declared that the development of bio-based resins have the potential to transform present resin and coating technology.

The technology developed by them will allow a number of US-grown crops to be used in the fabrication of these coatings and resins. The renewable raw materials-based resins are developed to prevent the use of compounds such as bisphenol-A and formaldehyde that harm the environment.
