Abstract

The invention of microorganisms involvement in carbonate precipitation, has paved the way to the exploration of this process in the field of construction engineering. Bio cement is a product innovation from developing bioprocess technology called bio cementation. Bio cement refers to CaCO3 deposit that is formed due to the microorganism activity in the systems which are rich in calcium ions. This paper overviews bio cement, bio concrete in general and the study also sheds light on benefits of bio cement over traditional agents and also the issues that lie in the path of successful commercialization of the technology of microbial induced calcium carbonate precipitation (bio cement) from lab(experiment) to field (commercial) scale.

Keywords: bio cement, bio cementation, carbonates precipitation, bio concrete

Article published in International Journal of Current Engineering and Technology, Vol.5, No.4 (Aug-2015)
