Bovine casein as a new soil strengthening binder
E3GEO recently published a research article for the Construction and Building Materials journal entitled "Bovine casein as a new soil strengthening binder from diary wastes".
Experimental results show significant soil strengthening induced by casein treatment even after 24 h of re-wetting, which implies the potential of applying casein-soil mixtures for water-resisting purposes. Feasibility analyses for casein utilization from dairy and milk wastes are provided in this paper with socio-, environmental, and engineering aspects, showing both future opportunities and challenges of recycling casein as a soil binder in engineering practices.
