Increasing the watertightness, durability & sustainability and reducing the maintenance of concrete
Basilisk Self-Healing Concrete is developed at the Delft University of Technology and is based on a autonomous repair system which is made possible by limestone-producing micro-organisms (bacteria). When the bacteria come in contact with oxygen and water, they are capable of converting certain nutrients to calcium carbonate (limestone). Due to the formation of limestone, cracks are autonomously repaired, increasing the durability and watertightness of the concrete structure.
