Bacterial concrete technology has proved to be better than many conventional technologies because of its eco-friendly nature, self-healing abilities and increase in durability of various building materials. The development of a self-healing mechanism in concrete that is based on potentially cheaper and more sustainable material. Then cement could thus be beneficial for our economy and environment. Enhancement of compressive strength, reduction in permeability, water absorption and reinforced corrosion has been seen in various cementitious and stone materials.

In bacterial concrete interconnectivity of pores is disturbed due to plugging of pores with calcite crystals. The application of bacterial concrete to construction may also simplify some of the existing construction methods and revolutionize the way of new construction process which is also very easy and convenient for the end users.
