EcoPlanet Bamboo is driving the reforestation agenda with a global portfolio of bamboo projects. With bamboo farms currently located across Central America, Africa and Southeast Asia, and smallholder operations under development in East Africa, EcoPlanet Bamboo is leading the industrialization of bamboo as a tree free, deforestation free alternative fiber for timber manufacturing industries. The conversion of degraded land into certified bamboo plantations is coupled with innovative technology development to provide bamboo based solutions for products and markets that currently contribute to the deforestation of our world’s natural forests. Bamboo can be grown on degraded land, providing positive restoration properties while at the same time reducing deforestation and degradation through the provision of a sustainable source of fiber. Bamboo’s fast growth rate and high productivity results in significant volumes of fiber produced per area and input. New technology enables bamboo’s use in the manufacturing of most products that currently rely on wood as their raw fiber including pulp & paper, textiles, engineered timber and bioenergy. EcoPlanet's bamboo can provide a secure and sustainable raw resource for industries, companies and consumers.
