Human society’s current demand for energy is at its highest
level in history and, as fossil fuels are in the verge of
extinction, most of our sustainable options are failing
to meet our needs.
However, through biomass, bamboo is the most
comprehensive and effective answer known to
mankind to solve the global environmental crisis and satisfy
the energy needs.
By its genetic makeup, bamboo is
considered a type of grass; therefore it
possesses the following characteristics:
Under ideal conditions, bamboo
can grow so fast, you can actually
watch it grow with your own eyes.
Bambú Rain’s plantations can
regenerate to produce the same
amount of wood, harvest after
harvest, year after year.
Bamboo roots absorb about 17 liters
of water within the first 2 years of
development, only to later deposit it
back into the surrounding nutrient-rich
soil and sustain its own growth.
Depending on the type of cut used
when harvesting, bamboo can be
used as raw material for a wide
variety of products like furniture
and building materials.
Bamboo recycles 35% more carbon dioxide than any other
tree, thus producing more oxygen by means of photosynthesis. It
continues this process throughout its entire life; unlike trees who
slow down their carbon capturing rate once their development is complete.
Due to the growth characteristics of its roots, it restores
and revives the land where it grows, infusing it with
nutrients and regenerating its natural fertility.
The vast versatility of bamboo enables
hundreds of species to survive and
reproduce in practically any climate
condition of the world.
Out of the existing hundreds of bamboo species in
the world, Bambú Rain uses the 3 ideal species for
optimal growth in the climate and geographic
conditions of our plantations. These 3 species are
Olhami, Vittata and Schrader.
Bambú Rain is actively involved in minimizing the greenhouse
effect caused by mankind’s uncontrolled emission of toxic gases.
Our plantations absorb the CO2 generated during processing,
thus creating more oxygen and cleaning up our atmosphere.
