Contaminated soils are often the blight of soil industrial activities in highly developed and industrialized countries. Contaminated soils have been subject of concern in most developed countries that are experiencing scarcity of uncontaminated soil for development such Malaysia. The objective of the study is to investigate the performance of the available technique for soil remediation contaminated with lead (Pb) through Stabilization/Solidification (S/S) technique. In this study, cockle shell powders at different percentages (2.5%, 5% and 7.5%) were added as a partial replacement of cement. Toxicity Leaching Characteristics Procedure (TCLP) was conducted to determine the effectiveness of the S/S technique to treat the contaminated soil. The results obtained show that 99% reduction Pb after the contaminated clay soil was treated with S/S technique. The combination of cement and cockle shell powders is very effective to use for remediation of lead contaminated soil and reduced the amount of cement for sustainability approach
