Available Technologies

Airable Research Lab has several market-ready technologies available for licensing. We are also interested in partnering with organizations to customize and commercialize any of these products. For additional information on any technology, click on the image or contact us.

Airable Research Lab partnered with METSS Corporation to prove that vodka, the purest of spirits, can be produced using soybeans or soybean meal. The result is an exceptionally smooth vodka for a market that seeks innovation. In blind testing, every taster picked soybean-based vodka over three high-end domestic brands. The artisanal engineered mash bills can be the base of other alcoholic beverages as well, including beer and gluten-free malted spirits.

Airable Research Lab has developed a multifunctional soy-based fatty acid ester that can substitute for petroleum-based chemicals, enabling a variety of low-cost and low-toxicity products. SAXE-ONE has potential applications as a paint stripper or lubricant, as well as other industrial applications that entail extreme exposure conditions (temperature, pH, microbes, and corrosive environments). The product can also be used as a starting material for making acrylate monomers, friction reducers, plasticizers, and linear alpha olefins.

Surfactants are essential to enhanced oil recovery (EOR), but most of these agents are toxic and expensive. Soy-based surfactants, the result of a research collaboration, provide the oil industry with a solution to cost and environmental concerns. Derived from epoxidized soybean oil or epoxidized soybean oil methyl ester, this family of surfactants is suitable for a variety of applications, including EOR from tight rock formations. The introductory soy-based product outperformed two commercial products in testing. The chemical platform is versatile, allowing commercial partners to tailor the product to specific performance and sustainability needs.

EnzoMeal® represents a breakthrough product for use in commercially derived feed in a high-value, well-recognized aquaculture species such as rainbow trout. Efforts to find suitable, more sustainable replacement proteins for fish meal have intensified, as has the need to increase the inclusion levels of soybean meal in aqua feed formulations. This technology was developed to remove oligosaccharides, the nondigestible carbohydrates that limit soybean meal’s use, as well as increasing crude protein. EnzoMeal® provides aquaculture farmers a sustainable, long-term, economically viable, and healthy solution. The 2017 R&D 100 Awards honored the product with the Gold Special Recognition Award—the highest level of this prestigious award for invention and innovation—in the Corporate Social Responsibility category.

This patented soy-based resin was developed to replace Bisphenol-A (BPA)-based resins, which have potential to release chemical toxins. Safe and effective soy-PK is reactive with many cross-linkers (amino resin, polymeric isocyanates and acrylates) and capable of forming coatings that match the performance of BPA-based coatings. The product was awarded second place in the Bio-Based Chemical Innovation of the Year category of the 2016 Bio-Based Innovation Awards.

Airable Research Lab is a business line of the Ohio Soybean Council (OSC). OSC is governed by a volunteer farmer board, which directs the Soybean Promotion and Research Program. OSC’s primary goal is to improve soybean profitability by targeting research, development, marketing, and education projects through the investment of farmer-contributed funds (checkoff).
