Learn About Polywhey
The development of PolyWhey® helps reduce dependence on petroleum-based products and turns a by-product into a new natural product.
Turning a Waste into a Product
Whey, a by-product of cheese making, has a high BOD (biochemical oxygen demand) that can increase the burden on waste treatment facilities and can pollute rivers, lakes, and even the ocean. By reformulating whey into a durable, natural wood finish, a potential waste product is taken out of the waste stream and put to a useful purpose.
Turning Away from Petroleum
The production of oil-based wood finishes and other coatings, such as paint, have relied solely on petroleum, a non-renewable resource. PolyWhey is derived from a renewable resource and in a small way helps to reduce dependence on oil, contributing to a more sustainable world.
