Soil is a fundamental engineering material. The quality of soil used in construction affects the overall stability of a structure. Cohesion, angle of internal friction, capillarity, permeability, elasticity and compressibility are the properties of soil taken into account while considering it as a construction material. Many stabilizers are available for improving the performance of soil as a construction material but the invention of new materials lead to the depletion of resources. This necessitates the need of a cost effective and reusable stabilizing agent. Industrial effluents pose a threat to the environment due to lack of efficient disposal methods. This paper focuses on the utilization of Jerofix for the stabilization of marine clay. Jerofix was added to marine clay at 10%, 20%, 30%, 40% and 50% to marine clay, the samples are analyzed for their variation in index and engineering properties.
