CO2 Sequestration :

Bamboo is a Neotropics Genus of Thorny clumping bamboo, ranging from moderated to large species Bamboo is a grass and conserves the soil, controls erosion, and regulates the flow of rivers & streams.

Environmentally, Bamboo is a rapid renewable resource and is more effective at removing CO2 (carbon dioxide) from the atmosphere than must tropical forest or wood.

Bamboo sequestrates four (4) times more CO2 than trees, and provides 35% more Oxygen than other forest. Ongoing studies in Colombia, South America have now been coordinated by the Environmental Bamboo Foundation and on the basis of such a study Japan & the Netherlands have both undertaking massive forestation projects as a way of earning so called "Carbon Credits" to offset industrial pollution. Its maximum maturity period is 6 years while the minimum time for trees to mature on average is 10 years. Bamboo even when burned it will grow back unlike trees, and its finished products will not release its CO2 for decades.
