Needs of sustainability in Civil Engineering design arose years ago and is constantly growing, fostered by the goals of the European Green Deal. In recent years, several environmental issues linked to the use of soils in civil engineering have raised. Nowadays the availability of natural high-quality soil to be used as construction materials is more and more limited; soils should be recycled as much as possible. Geotechnical engineering can significantly contribute to reach the recycling goal via selecting ways to reuse excavated soil. The properties of fine-grained soils that are unsuitable for earthworks after compaction only can be improved by adding lime as a stabilizing agent to get proper material characteristics.
