Agri-cycle Energy
Agri-Cycle Energy offers 3 principle services to the state of Maine:
  1. Clean, renewable energy to the grid in Maine and throughout the region, powering roughly 1,500 homes annually and growing.
  2. Minimizing the amount of organic waste destined for the region’s landfills, prolonging their lifespan and preventing the release of potent greenhouse gases.
  3. We have Maine’s first de-packager, capable of separating food products from cans, jugs, boxes, and other packaging, saving you time and money.

Impacts of environmental change on Maine's freshwater and marine resources
Dr. Rachel Sipler is a Senior Research Scientist and Director of the Water Health and Humans Initiative at Bigelow Laboratory for Ocean Sciences. Her research focuses on understanding how changes in the environment will impact our coastal freshwater and marine resources and the people and organisms that depend on them. Her research efforts include freshwater, coastal and open ocean waters, from urbanized rivers and wastewater treatment outflow, to pristine environments spanning from the Arctic to the Antarctic and many systems in between. Her research is highly collaborative, and often involves working closely with academic, government, non-profit, indigenous communities, working-groups, rights-holders, and industry partners. Clean water is essential, not aspirational so Sipler's research combines observation, innovation and action to improve and maintain aquatic ecosystem health now for a better future.
