Bacterial concrete is a material that has enough potential to remediate cracks in concrete. It is also known as self-healing concrete. This technique is highly desirable because the mineral precipitation induced as a result of microbial activities is pollution-free and natural. Bacterial concrete is a product that will biologically produce limestone to heal the crack that appears on the surface of concrete structures. Thus we can say, bacterial concrete is a result of the biological reaction of non-reacted limestone and calcium-based nutrients with the help of bacteria to heal the cracks.
Area of application;
Bacterial concrete is used for the refilling of cracks in the building. It also enhances the life span of the building and gives good strength.
