New bitumen research centre in Calgary
There is very little dedicated road research in Canada relative to the multi-billion dollar annual expenditure that roadways require. To help address this issue, and to help create longer lasting, better quality asphalt, the University of Calgary has just created a chair in bituminous materials. The first Chair named is Dr. Ludo Zanzotto, a frequent partner and collaborator with IRC. The $5-million, five-year R&D effort is being funded jointly by Husky Oil Ltd., Novacor Chemicals Ltd., and the Natural Sciences and Engineering Research Council of Canada with operational support from the university.
