The creation of sustainable environment has revolutionized the world in the past two decades. The area of biomineralization sector has also grown to provide promising results as a potential environment eco-friendly process to produce. Microbial-Induced Calcite Precipitation played a major role in promotion of biomineralization, and many patents have been generated in the past few years. Even now studies related to optimization, economic, and eco-friendly perspective are carried out and compared with other sustainable techniques to tackle environmental pollutants. In this chapter, MICP-based bio-cement has been focused as an alternative of cement produced using non-renewable sources. The pros of using bio-cement against cement have been discussed along with impact on conventional cement market. Lastly, different stages of bio-cement production using MICP process have been discussed to provide a step forward in sustainability
