Energy independence is the goal of University of Maine research exploring ecologically sustainable alternatives to petroleum. UMaine scientists and engineers are looking to the state's renewable natural resource bases from its forests and agricultural fields to its tidal pools to find alternative energy solutions. The largest of these research initiatives focuses on the production of forest-based bioproducts, developing methods for transforming waste products from paper processing and other wood-based enterprises into fuels, chemicals and plastics.
