The amino lignin, lignin, and amino cellulose is reacted with organic and inorganic compounds, such as aldehydes, polyisocyanates, epoxies, polycarboxylic acids, and vegetable oils, to produce resins and adhesives; these may then be used to produce products such as molded products, particleboard, and plywood which are flame retardant and water resistant.
California leads the nation in organic farms and sales, but confidence in the state's organic produce was shaken in 2008, when major suppliers of organic fertilizer were caught using cheaper inorganic compounds. This prompted the passage of AB 856, which gave regulators more authority over organic fertilizers.
