A stable urea solution and a calcium source areinjected afterwards. The urea hydrolysis is catalysed introducing the precursors forthe calcite precipitation. Calcite

Carbonate Mineral Precipitation for Soil

Bench scale bioreactor and column tests using Pseudomonas denitrificans have shown that calcite can be precipitated from calcium-rich pore water using denitrification. Recent experiments at Arizona State University and by others have sought to reduce potential environmental impacts and lower costs associated with denitrification by reducing the total dissolved solids in the reactors and columns and

MICROBIAL INDUCED CALCITE PRECIPITATION

2018-8-30  Biomediated soil improvement, also known as Microbial Induced CalcitePrecipitation (MICP), is a promising new branch of microbial geotechnology. EarlierMICP studies only focused on sandy soils, but more recent studies have also investigatedthe potential and feasibility of MICP on tropical residual soil. The main objectiveof this study is to examine the feasibility of MICP and the mechanisms involvedbetween two types of bacteria and chemical reagents in improving the strength oftropical residual soil. Essentially, this was about identifying the optimized treatmentconditions as well as the effects of some specific MICP parameters and curing onunconfined compressive strength (UCS) development and calcite

Calcium–phosphate treatment of contaminated soil

2013-1-1  Highlights As concentration in soil was 278 ppm after >5 decades of As-herbicide application. Phosphate treatments were tested for in situ fixation of arsenic in soil. Phosphate only treatment was not able to immobilize arsenic in soil. Phosphate–calcium treatment helped immobilize arsenic in soil at pH > 7. Arsenic immobilization occurred by precipitation of As-phosphate phases.
