Bamboo: the efficient raw material

Bamboo has many reasons that make it the ideal ecological material today as an alternative to other polluting materials since it is very versatile and versatile. Its characteristics position it as a perfect material for the elaboration of all kinds of goods. With it, we can almost completely replace plastic, metal, oil or other types of wood that are highly polluting.

We are talking about a 100% biodegradable product, one of the most important reasons for its use as an alternative material. You do not need any type of recycling process, choosing whether to use it or treat it as waste, both options being respectful with the environment. Likewise, it is not a scarce resource, it comes from the environment and can be cultivated easily, so it is an infinite source of energy unlike oil, plastic and metal. Its exploitation is based on a sustainable model that allows the generation of durable economic systems.

All this makes bamboo a tool against global warming, being a plant capable of capturing more CO2 than other plants, which is why it is considered a highly efficient species in absorbing carbon dioxide from the atmosphere. It is a sustainable material since its short production cycles allow to have the necessary quantity for a constant performance.

These same production cycles show that it is an efficient material, since it is one of the fastest growing plants in the world, reaching 15 centimeters per day, making it a highly sustainable material to produce. Therefore, using bamboo is a good solution to optimize the land that humanity allocates to the production of resources, avoiding having to deforest our forests and jungles.

As we have verified, this is a very resistant plant. This translates to little or no presence of chemicals during cultivation. Thus highlighting that chemistry does not play any role in the handling of the bamboo once it is cut as it does not require a complex transformation process.

Similarly, it is a great option for energy production. Its high productive performance makes bamboo a perfect plant for the production of fuel of vegetable origin, being an alternative to other current fuels. It is also an easily applicable recycling option when disposing of bamboo products when they are no longer useful or have become obsolete.
