Maine’s forests are full of opportunity
With abundant forest resources and UMaine’s research expertise, Maine is making significant contributions to the global bioeconomy.
In fact, Maine is becoming referred to a ‘Nanocellulose Valley’.
Using a sustainable, renewable wood fiber advancement called nanocellulose, Maine companies and researchers are developing some amazing things.
For 200 years, our state’s economy has been deeply rooted in the forest products industry.
Now, we are growing more than trees. We are growing Maine’s future.
