Abstract: Concrete is one of the world’s leading material consumed, it is the most crucial material in the Construction Industry. Noting such extensive use of the material, it is noteworthy that the problems associated with concrete will lead to larger production required for repair and maintenance of concrete. In order to tackle the rising production of concrete and the large carbon footprint it possess, newer technologies are studied and one of which is bio-cement. Bio-cement is process based on Microbially Induced Calcium Carbonate Precipitation (MICP) which helps the concrete to “heal” itself through the natural metabolic processes by bacteria to create calcium carbonate which binds sand particles when a crack is formed on the concrete. The study will provide insight on the urease activity of four Sporosarcina Pasteurii strains, notably DSM33 and its novel strains of E1, E2 and E3.
