A Canadian company has licensed patented technology developed in Dr. Wang’s lab to help reduce emissions of carbon dioxide, a gas contributing to global warming, in its manufacturing process. The process Wang and his students developed results in concrete richer in calcium carbonate, which improves performance. The strengthened concrete could mean using less of the material, conserving resources and costs. Dr. Wang is a 2019 inductee into the National Academy of Inventors. His main research efforts focus on material innovations to enhance the resilience and sustainability of civil infrastructure systems.Read more about Dr. Wang
