Canada Research Chair in Sustainable Multifunctional Construction Materials
About the Chair
Urbanization is intensifying all across the planet, causing demand for new buildings and infrastructure assets to increase accordingly. The construction industry generates a great deal of waste, and the Canada Research Chair in Sustainable Multifunctional Construction Materials intends to develop and fabricate environmentally responsible and sustainable materials within a circular economy as part of the green transition.
The objective is to design and demonstrate the added value of materials with advanced functionalities, designed to adapt to their environment and to climate change, to transform pollutants and to respond to other emerging needs.
