Why Bamboo

EcoPlanet Core Carbon utilizes deforestation-free bamboo from EcoPlanet Bamboo's certified plantations for the production of a range of tree- free sustainable products

EcoPlanet's bamboo is not only renewable and an ideal feedstock for carbonization, but provides significant social and environmental impact along each step of the supply chain.

Camille Rebelo EcoPlanet Bamboo Co-Founder was responsible for the origination, development & management of bamboo plantations in Nicaragua, South Africa & Ghana. EcoPlanet Bamboo Investment into bamboo charcoal.

The biomass of carefully chosen species of bamboo has unique properties that are highly beneficial in the carbonization process, resulting in a specialized pre-cursor bamboo charcoal for specialty applications. Such benefits include*:

 

  • A unique cell structure that results in a high fixed carbon content under correct pyrolysis;

  • High absorption properties;

  • A negative charge once activated;

  • Low ash and volatile content resulting in a clean burning product;

  • A calorific value equal to or higher than most hardwood tree species.

 

However the greatest benefits and advantages of bamboo lie in the correct production and management of the plant. If bamboo is grown only on degraded land, as a deforestation free crop, managed under a strict framework of certification and harvested in a manner that ensures sustainability, it has the potential to be one of the most sustainable forms of biomass on the planet.

*NOTE: There are more than 1,500 species of bamboo each with unique biomass and fiber properties. EcoPlanet carries out careful species selection for each climatic condition and targeted end use.

RESTORING DEGRADED LAND

EcoPlanet Bamboo's plantations are grown only on degraded land & have received international accreditation for their landscape restoration benefits.

DEFORESTATION FREE

EcoPlanet Bamboo's plantations are integrated ecosystems, with no clearing of trees or any native vegetation for the planting of bamboo.

EcoPlanet Bamboo's plantations strive to bring long term positive impact to rural communities suffering from poverty and a lack of opportunity.

FIGHTING CLIMATE CHANGE

EcoPlanet Bamboo's plantations are developed under a strict framework of climate change benefits, sequestering & storing large volumes of atmospheric carbon dioxide.
