In embryonic countries like India the most imperative requirement of any project after performance criteria is its economical prospect and service ability criteria. The conservative methods are time consuming and are not economically feasible. Hence, it is necessary to find out the other substitute to gratify the performance and efficiency. Bio-enzymatic effects on soil sample are discussed below. Nowadays, soil stabilization through bio-enzyme is a new and world famous technique. Soil stabilization is the method which improves properties of soil. Soil is used as sub base and base material, if strength of soil is poor, then stabilization is usually required. Bio-enzyme, a liquid organic formula is used as a soil stabilizer, which boost the engineering characteristics of soil through cationic exchange. It provides chance to enhance the characteristics of dirt roads having high percentage fines constructed with soil, through bioenzymatic stabilization. Nowadays some bio-enzymes like Terra-Zyme, Renolith, Fujibeton and Perma-Zyme are most efficient and economical in soil stabilisation. Most important advantage of the bio-enzyme is that these are eco- friendly. To transform the engineering properties of soil, mixing of bioenzymes in soil sample takes place. There are many factors like dose of bio enzyme, soil type and condition of field plays vital role for their efficiency. Due to unconsciousness among engineers and scarcity of standardized data soil stabilization through bio-enzyme is not widely used. However, recently in various parts of India construction of roads which are stabilized through bio-enzyme gives better performance.

Keywords: Bio-enzyme, Cationic exchange, Cost efficient, Eco-friendly, Feasibility, Non-traditional, Soil stabilizer.
