OLD TOWN, ME, June 28, 2011 (Bangor Daily News) -The heavy, moist smell of chemical and paper dominates the air as decades-old machinery churns out hundreds of tons of pulp at the Fuel & Fiber mill.

In another part of the mill campus, where tissue paper machines once roared, relatively new machinery hums along. There's a sugary smell in the air, reminiscent of a maple sugar shack.

It's the past and the future tied inexorably together in the mill.
