Contaminated soil is often a problem and concern in developing countries due to lack of clean soil for development, such as 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 Characteristics Leaching Procedure (TCLP) was conducted to determine the effectiveness of the S/S technique to treat the contaminated soil. The results show that 99% reduction of Pb concentration 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
