There is promise in the application of plant-derived urease enzymes to produce carbonate precipitation (mostly calcium carbonate (CC)). Beneficial mechanical qualities, like bearing capacity and resistance to liquefaction, can be achieved through sand cementation with the help of bio-mineral precipitation, as can the control of soil erosion through surficial stabilization and the reduction of sand's hydraulic conductivity.
