Construction

We can help you use natural, sustainable ingredients in your materials without compromising on cost or effectiveness.

For the construction industry, producing eco-friendly products is part of doing business today. And as always, quality construction depends on quality materials. Manufacturers are challenged with meeting demands for new, environmentally friendly materials without impacting product functionality, quality and cost.

Our natural, responsibly-sourced vegetable oils, starches and other bio-based products are part of the solution. Using Cargill-produced base materials as a start, our research and development expertise allows us to create materials that help our customers thrive. We’ve developed — and are constantly improving — materials that meet stringent low VOC (Volatile Organic Compound) requirements, bio-based alternatives to formaldehyde binders and resins, and modified linseed oils for hardboard manufacturing.

If you’re looking for a low flammability oil, need to minimize dust in road construction, or are interested in reducing waste and environmental impact during your manufacturing process, we can help. We know how to help you increase the use of natural, sustainable ingredients in your materials in cost-effective ways, without compromising on cost or effectiveness.
