Abstract

"Next" piece on 12 Mainers shaping the future of the state's economy, with a profile of Habib Dagher, 43, who helped conceive and build the University of Maine's Advanced Engineered Wood Composites (AEWC) Center, as a research and development arm for Maine wood products companies, a way to compete globally, and a way to add value to Maine's natural resources. Wood composites allow companies to transcend limits on the state's lumber supply and to use smaller trees and types not used for construction. Last year, the center spun off its first new business based on patented technology developed at the lab--Engineered Materials of Maine in Bangor. The center will receive $4 million from the bond issue approved in June.
