Impacting the world. Securing the future
Reducing the world's dependency on petroleum
When it comes to environmental issues, we believe in continuous improvement. While protection of our water, air, soil and vegetation is paramount, maintaining the status quo is not enough. With increased innovation, creativity, and teamwork, and with the cooperation of all stakeholders, we believe we can revitalize our natural resources, reduce reliance on petroleum and generate high revenue for farmers.
A key issue that arises with any biologically-sourced chemical is the perceived conflict between growing crops for food vs. fuel/chemicals. Our process makes use of feedstock (soybeans and distiller’s corn oil) that do not conflict with food growth. In fact, with soybean feedstock, adoption of our technology enhances food production. Soybeans are primarily grown for the protein meal or cake that is produced when the seeds are crushed. The crushing process produces oil which is extracted. Most soybean producers, like our partner, Minnesota Soybean Processors (MnSP), have the capacity to crush much larger quantities of soybeans than they currently process.
Life Cycle Analysis
Committed to reducing our environmental footprint.
Our superior performance products give your customers the value they are looking for with less cradle-to-grave environmental impact. We use sustainably sourced raw materials and processes that adhere to Green Chemistry principles.
An independent life cycle analysis shows Entrada lubricant production has lower GHG emissions than petroleum-based lubricants.
Through better performance, Entrada lubricants also reduce engine friction, providing better fuel economy.
Less waste. Less energy. Less pollution.
A cleaner world is not just about better products but also better processes. We apply Green Chemistry principles to all aspects of our company’s operations.
