The distinct advantage bamboo has over tree production is its speed of establishment – then subsequent continuous cropping. Bamboo requires more stages to produce board products, eg flooring. However, its physical properties are high compared to hardwood. Biochar from bamboo is superior to wood because of its greater surface area.
Bamboo is the fastest growing woody plant. It pulls C02 from the atmosphere and turns it into bamboo. Once pyrolyzed, it is a highly valuable soil ameliorant, while sequestering as carbon, C02 absorbed during the bamboos growth phase
Additional products such as Green diesel, hydrogen, ammonia can be captured during the pyrolizing process.
