From the Portland Press Herald:
Researchers in Maine are working on innovative ways to use wood fibers. Entrepreneurs are developing products and seeking out new, evolving markets.
Wood can be used as an additive to make new plastics and chemicals, or to strengthen construction materials, with an untold number of applications.
That is the kind of work being done at the Advanced Structures and Composites Center at the University of Maine, a facility with 180 employees and about 500 clients worldwide. It derives 95 percent of its funding from outside Maine, showing how homegrown innovation can draw wealth to this state.
