UMaine Researchers Quoted in Pathfinder Buzz Article

A Pathfinder Buzz article titled “Maine turning new tricks from old industries” includes quotes from University of Maine researchers about how they are developing new applications to extend the state’s traditional strengths such as fishing and forestry. Those innovations include the development of golf balls from lobster shells and bio-jet fuel and biomass pellets from trees. David Neivandt, a biological and chemical engineering professor at UMaine, spoke about the golf balls saying the university is employing an underused byproduct of the lobster canning industry into a value-added consumer product “which hopefully has come cachet in the market.”
