Building Material – Bamboo and its Wider Use
Soil stabilization, wind break, urban waste water treatment and reduction of nitrates contamination
Creating a fire line in traditional forests-due to the high content of silica.
Removing atmospheric carbon- bamboo can capture 17 metric tons of carbon per hectare per year, i.e., effectively than any other species.
The shoots are edible.
Building and construction.
Small scale and cottage industries, for handicrafts and other products.
New generation products as wood substitutes
Transportation industry- truck bodies, railway carriages etc.
Boards and furniture
Paper and pulp industry
Long time source of biomass for industry
Fuel source- capable of generating 1000-6000 cal/g- for households and small industries is an age-old, continuing practice.
