Bio-Pulp Production:   (Bio-Fiber Bales)



Bamboo as a new rapid renewable fiber resource will succeed in the paper industry. There are many benefits to using a non-wood fiber currently, the paper industry uses at least 90% wood chips for its fiber source, Wood chips are the bi-products of the timber industry.


Bamboo Fiber functions the same as wood fiber in pulping & paper manufacturing. Bamboo is a dense fiber that can be chipped similar to wood, it is important to clarify that bamboo is not the only non-wood fiber that can work in paper manufacturing. But Bamboo has very important qualities that make a great non-wood fiber source.


Bamboo Pulp is Carbon Neutral (CO2 Neutral) cost less than wood pulp has superior functions, and the desirable image. Bamboo is a grass and if marketed successfully could help paper makers offer consumers a sustainable product that offers increases benefits over recycled paper products.


The Bamboo Fibers are characterized for been thin & long, and constitute between 40-50% of the total fiber tissue, and between 60-70% of the weight of the Culm. During the second and third period of life, a Bamboo (3-6 years) produces a value of 73.9% fibers in percentage (%) of the thickness of the full stem.


Bamboo is also a source of bio-energy. Bamboo provides a clean and renewable energy alternative in the form of charcoal briquettes and wood for domestic and industrial use.



Why buy ?



* RENEWABLE:     Yields 20 times more fiber than trees.  A bamboo plant matures in four to eight years, depending on the species; however, it can be harvested as a perennial crop, without deforestation, three to five years after initial planting. It can be sustainably harvested for well over 40 years. Once it starts growing, bamboo remains rooted in the soil, producing new shoots each year. This helps secure the soil and maintain slope stability.



* VERSATILE:      Produces raw material fiber for infinite uses including Pulp & Paper, flooring, furniture, clothing, bio-plastics, energy and more. Bamboo is used to make a long list of high-value products. In fact, according to the United Nations Environment Program (UNEP), the plant has over 2,000 different uses, China reckons there are nearly 10,000 uses and can fetch even more money if processed. Bamboo the highly versatile giant grass that can grow in almost any kind of climate and thrive in the poorest of soils. Bamboo has been in existence for hundreds of years in Asia, Latin America and parts of Africa. Yet for a long time the potential of this fastest-growing plant on earth, with recorded growth rates of up to one meter per day for some species, remained largely unexploited.



* SUSTAINABLE:       Captures 5 times more carbon and releases 35% more oxygen to the atmosphere than a like-sized stand of trees. On protecting the environment, some swear the bamboo plant is “magic” in mitigating the effects of climate change through rapid reforestation, slowing soil erosion and repairing damaged ecosystems. Bamboo also serves as an excellent large-scale carbon sink, each plant taking in almost double the carbon dioxide of a tree.



*LOW MAINTENANCE:        Easily contained to desired areas through man-made barriers and pruning. It also does not require any fertilizers or pesticides because it has no real threat from diseases or pests. Once it is planted, you can leave it. It is an amazing plant that provides a great opportunity for making an income because it grows incredibly fast and a farmer can sell it as a raw product or can make products out of it. It can help reduce poverty and protect the environment, and that it provides a practical and rapid solution for some of the natural resource and poverty challenges facing many countries today.
