The shutdown of Engineered Materials of Maine in Bangor late last year was an unwelcome development in the state's efforts to use high-tech research and development as an economic stimulus tool. The company, which used a glue and laminate process to turn low-grade hardwoods into beams and other construction materials, was one of the first spinoffs from the University of Maine's Advanced Engineered Wood Composites Center (AEWC). Habib Dagher, director of the AEWC, is now looking to work with established companies, such as Hancock Lumber, to commercialize research and development projects.
