I’ve been reading about TerraZyme® for a number of years, but Scott Howard of Earthen Hand prompted me to comment on this soil stabilizer. It seems to be an enzyme fermented from fruit, so here’s another safe, low tech way to stabilize earthbags. Text below is from their website.
TerraZyme® soil stabilizer is a safe, effective, non-corrosive liquid enzyme soil stabilizer that significantly enhances the properties of the soil used in the construction of road infrastructure. The result is a better and longer lasting soil stabilized road with increased CBR loading, reduced soil permeability and increased road strength. These lower a road’s construction and maintenance costs while increasing the overall quality of its structure. TerraZyme is easy to use and is not harmful to the soil or its applicators.
TerraZyme® soil stabilizer is produced in the United States by Nature Plus, Inc. and is available worldwide through local distributors or directly from NPI. Contact us for information on how this exciting new soil stabilization technology can enhance your road project and lower costs.
A comprehensive two year World Bank study in Paraguay confirmed the benefits of soil stabilizers. It has been used with excellent and consistent results in more than 30 countries including the US and Canada, and countries in Latin America, Africa, and Asia. Scores of successful projects have been completed, including rehabilitation of nearly 300 kilometers in Honduras and almost 1,000 kilometers in Malaysia.
