Background

Professor Doug Hooton is the NSERC/CAC Industrial Research Chair in Concrete Durability and Sustainability. His research involves finding ways to reduce the greenhouse gas emissions associated with concrete infrastructure. He investigates the use of materials such as supplementary cementitious materials and ground limestone to produce a stronger and more durable concrete product. His research has informed the specification codes associated with the American Concrete Institute, the Canadian Standards Association and ASTM standards.

Research Interests
