Biodeposition, a method by which calcium carbonate (CaCO3) precipitation is induced by bacteria, has been proposed as an interesting approach to protect building materials. The liquid-based system presented in this paper aims at the sealing of cracks and decrease of the porosity due to the production of a calcium-based biomineral. In this system...

Bacterially induced calcium carbonate precipitation has received considerable attention for its potential application in enforcing or repairing construction material. The mechanism of bacterially mediated calcite precipitation in those studies is primarily based on the enzymatic hydrolysis of urea. Besides calcite precipitation, this reaction...
