Stabilization Of Contaminated Dump Yard Soil By Bio Enzymes

Date of Publication :31st January 2022

Abstract: the occurrence or detection of the construction project is often problematic because of the associated time constraints in correctly determining and classifying the contaminant region and the costs involved with maintaining the safe and effective handling of the contaminated material. The present research work aims to provide a solution to that problem with the help of a newly developed non-conventional stabilizer known as DZ-2x bio enzymes. Contaminated soil from a dump yard is tested with the bio enzymes to determine possible changes in its strength and usability as a construction material. The experiments showed a positive results in terms of its unconfined compression strength, maximum dry density and optimum moisture content with compressive strength increased up to 164% at the end of 28 days
