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. The shoots used for the food industry are an important segment of bamboo cultivation.
Thanks to its unique properties, every part of the bamboo plant can be used in one of the many applications. Bamboo absorbs more carbon than trees, is very sustainable, and once planted, bamboo lives for about 100 years.
Bamboo is becoming more popular and the bamboo market is expected to grow exponentially in the coming years. Europe is currently the largest export market for Asian bamboo products.
strong & versatile
Bamboo has more than 10,000 product applications. It has greater tensile strength than steel and is the ideal raw material for extremely strong composite materials, while on the other hand, it is used to produce ultra-soft textiles with antibacterial and anti-odour properties.
