Abstract

Bioremediation based on microbial induced carbonate precipitation is a recent technique that uses bacteria to both solidify and stabilize mine waste via biocementation. This technology offers a carbon-neutral option to Portland cement, polymers, and other additives that have been used for decades to stabilize hazardous mine waste. Its possible application in situ and various geographical locations give its good application prospects. This chapter discusses the use of biocementation as a heavy metal stabilization/solidification technique. It further elucidates the challenges and prospects of this technology before the actual application can be feasible for actual sites.
