Bamboo applications

The most versatile plant on the planet

Bamboo is one of the most versatile plants, with countless applications. On the one hand, bamboo has greater tensile strength than steel, and on the other hand, it can be used to manufacture ultra-soft clothing, food, and care products. Many sectors have already embraced bamboo which has resulted in an increasing demand for practically all bamboo products. The increasing demand in combination with the relatively low cultivation costs during the lifetime of the plant makes bamboo one of the most profitable crops.

Bamboo shoots are still one of the largest segments in the bamboo trade today and can be grown well in Europe.

The bamboo leaves contain high concentrations of Silica, highly sought after in the pharma and health care industry.

Bamboo canes are being used more and more in architecture and construction. The thinner canes to twigs can be used for bamboo mats, toothpicks and straws, and design applications.

Beams and boards composed of bamboo are also rapidly gaining popularity.

There is a rapidly growing demand for bamboo fibres for construction applications, textiles and composite materials. Composite based on bamboo is an extremely strong and light material that is already used in automobile, train and aircraft construction and has many applications in engineering and design.

Bamboo can also serve as an energy supplier in the form of charcoal, energy pellets or as biomass.


“Manufacturers and users are increasingly turning their backs on tropical wood. European bamboo is a logical alternative.”

CO² Compensation

for individuals

Looking to compensate CO2 emissions? Discover our Bamboo Compensation Program. We have opened up a contribution program. With your contribution we will plant Bamboo on degraded land in Southern Europe. 

This programme will give you the opportunity to compensate CO2 via bamboo. After all, bamboo is one of the most successful CO2 absorbing crop. Please fill in the form underneath and we keep you informed about our program.
