Soybean-based motor oil hits market

Biosynthetic Technologies has launched a synthetic motor oil that uses high-oleic soybean oil.

Available in 5W-20 and 5W-30 viscosities, the oil is recommended for all types of modern vehicles, including high-performance, turbocharged, supercharged, multi-valve and fuel-injected engines that are found in passenger cars, SUVs, light vans and trucks.

According to the website, the oil retails for $9.99 per quart.

“Soy-based motor oil is another great opportunity to drive demand for U.S. soybeans and allow companies to give customers what they want at the same time,” said Mike Korth, United Soybean Board director and soybean farmer.

“These partnerships benefit soybean farmers and agriculture, as well as a variety of industries and end users.”

Biosynthetic motor oil uses high oleic soybean oil.

Courtney Kingery, CEO of Indiana Soybean Alliance, discussed the benefits that new soybean-based products like the oil bring to farmers.

“First off, it increases the demand for high oleic soybeans,” she said. “Secondly, things like Biosynthetic Technologies are bringing the bio-based products to the market that the consumers want.

“Lastly, we’re happy to be supporting local, Indiana industry. When our farmers are able to partner with Indiana industry — that brings additional value back to Indiana.”

The company is offering farmers a limited-time 20% discount to purchase the oil. They can use code “BioTrialFarm” at motoroil.biosynthetic.com through Jan. 31.

The oil also can be purchased on www.amazon.com.
