Application of EICP for Soil Improvement for Finer-Grained Soils
|Abstract||The public has expressed a growing desire for more sustainable and green technologies to be implemented in society. Bio-cementation is a method of soil improvement that satisfies this demand for sustainable and green technology. Bio-cementation can be performed by using microbes or free enzymes which precipitate carbonate within the treated soil. These methods are referred to as microbial induced carbonate precipitation (MICP) and enzyme induced carbonate precipitation (EICP). The precipitation of carbonate is the formation of crystalline minerals that fill the void spaces within a body of soil.
This thesis investigates the application of EICP in a soil collected from the Arizona State University Polytechnic campus. The surficial soi... (more)
