Project Code: CUP SCDC/ADF 2016-110
Final Report: April 2021
Summary: Using green processing technologies, Saskatchewan-grown crops, such as camelina, canola, corn, flax and soybean oils can be incorporated into existing materials and manufacturing processes without the need for additional infrastructure. Researchers at the University of Saskatchewan developed new processes and methods to produce sweet linseed oil for oil-based paints, as well as epoxidized corn, soybean, canola, camelina and ultra-pure flaxseed oils as natural, biodegradable epoxy resins for the surface coating industry.
