The study of Microbial-induced carbonate precipitation (MICP) on organic soil has remained limited. This PhD study intends to fill the knowledge gap by studying MICP of tropical peat. Based on the finding, it was possible (i) to isolate bacteria strains from acidic tropical peat with high urea hydrolysis activities and capable of bio-cementation; (ii) to induce bio-cementation in acidic peat, which leads to strength gain and reduction of permeability; (iii) to improve consolidation behaviour.

Kazemian, Sina (2015)Peat commonly occurs as extremely soft, wet, unconsolidated surface deposits that are integral parts of wetland systems. The increasing growth of the population leads to the need to use peat land for development purposes. ...
