The article focuses on the research conducted by Bernie Tao, professor in agricultural and biological engineering at Purdue University, on the uses of soybeans in Indiana. Tao stresses that the real high economic value products that come from petroleum are chemicals. The research is funded through a master agreement with the Indiana Soybean Alliance, using the soybean checkoff dollars. Some of the by-products of soybeans include candles, crayons and petroleum.
