- ... Microbially induced calcium carbonate precipitation (MICP) at laboratory scale for modifying the geotechnical properties of soils has been extensively investigated. The successful implementation of MICP in the field encounters many biotic and abiotic challenges. The study aimed to comprehend the role of oxygen availability on the efficacy of MICP catalyzed by S. pasteurii microbe. For this purpose ...

- ... Lime manufacture in the UK has resulted in the generation of a number of alkaline sites (>pH 11.0) with complex indigenous microbial populations. Within the present study, retrievable cotton samples were used to investigate the fate of cellulose, the primary carbon source, within three sites aged from ≈25 to 140 years. Following 3 months incubation in situ, biofilms had formed on all cotton sample ...
