Abstract :

Stabilization of problematic soils including contaminated soils, peat, silt, and the like through adding materials such as; cement, lime, bitumen, and etc. is one of effective methods for improving the geotechnical properties of soils which has been applied for many years now. There are a great number of techniques for stabilizing that can be used for various purposes by enhancing some aspects of soil behavior and improving the characteristics of soil. Most available remediation technologies for treatment of contaminated soils are very expensive and result in residues requiring further treatment. This study aims to overview of data published on stabilizing the various types of contaminated soils such as heavy and toxic metals (As, Cr, Cu, Pb and Zn) using different additives like ordinary portland cement (OPC), rice husk ash (RHA), lime, synthesized zeolite, and etc. The consequences of these findings for the stabilization of contaminated soils by the presence of heavy-toxic metals have been also throughly discussed.
