An interview with Dr. Hans Friederich
– BambooLogic Partner, Senior Advisor, and ex INBAR General Director –
about the benefits and drawbacks of bamboo in Europe.
Bamboo is the fastest-growing type of grass on the planet. As an ideal alternative for hardwood, bamboo yields 15 times more wood than traditional trees and starts producing wood after 5 to 6 years. Investing in bamboo delivers stable returns as of year 7.
Thanks to its unique properties, every part of the bamboo plant can be used. Bamboo absorbs more carbon than trees, regenerates land and keeps water in the soil. When you invest in bamboo, you invest in nature and climate.
The bamboo market is expected to grow exponentially in the coming years. Europe is currently the largest export market for Asian bamboo products. For many applications European grown bamboo is suitable. That’s why investing in bamboo in Europe is a good portfolio diversification.
strong & versatile
Bamboo has more than 10,000 product applications. It has a larger tensile strength than steel and is the ideal raw material for composite materials, while on the other hand, it is used to produce ultra-soft textiles. It’s one of the most versatile renewable commodities and thus a good investment.
