WATERVILLE, ME, Dec. 3, 2012 (Kennebec Journal) -An area entrepreneur has reached an agreement with a partner company in France that opens the European market to his invention, a starch-based filler that can reduce the cost of making paper products.

If Tony Jabar, 56, owner of Waterville-based Cerealus, is right about the value of his product, it could change the paper-making world and bring hundreds of millions of dollars from Europe into Maine.

Jabar's invention is Cerecarb, made from the same starches found in corn or potatoes.
