Constructing SandBrick from Microbial Induced Cementing Bacteria (MICP)

Authors: Abdalla Iamm, Mohamed Essam

Needless to say, Egypt is one of the developing countries that faces multiple challenges: Pollution and weak health care system which affect mainly two aspects of life: public health and communication. The grand challenge which our project focused on is pollution; waste and industrial smoke pollute the air with high amounts of toxic gases such as CO₂ and SO₄. So, a solution has been adopted to produce a highly-strengthened brick with a lower price. The solution is about extracting and precipitating silica fume (which is a highly toxic material in the gaseous state) from the industrial smoke, and mixing it with BacillusPasteurii bacteria, urine and calcium chloride to make a brand-new strengthened brick almost as hard as a marble. Based on the obtained results, our project could slightly solve Egypt's major problems, mainly the Pollution Problem.
