The precipitation system CIPS (Calcite In-situ Precipitation System) has been created as a permeation grouting system based on a two component fluid with the intention of slowly permeate and fill the pores. It causes cementation through a chemical reaction which bonds the soil particles together at the contact points. CIPS mimics one of the natural reactions in nature where sandstone is formed through calcite precipitation. This system is used in Australia with excellent results and some of the factors governing the outcome of the method are: flow rate, pressure, time, chemical recipe, temperature, composition of the soil matrix and number of treatments. Some of these factors have been the focus of this report and they have been examined from a Scandinavian point of view where the ground temperature conditions and soil compositions have governed the outcome of the accomplished results. Both laboratory and field tests have been conducted with a satisfying increase in UCS.
