Information profile @ a Glance
  • Bamboo is used for almost everything— from a nourishing food supplement (shoots) and traditional herbal medicine for minor and major ailments to raw material for cottage and handicrafts industry as well as large industries like paper and pulp.
  • The commercialization of recent innovations in bamboo processing have created significant new market opportunities in areas such as flooring, laminated furniture, panels and activated carbon
  • Similar to wood charcoal, bamboo charcoal is a micro-porous material with excellent adsorption property for its large specific surface area
  • Indian bamboo is a good raw material for conversion to activated carbon
  • China and Japan are main bamboo charcoal manufacturing nations in the world
  • Bamboo carbonization: bamboo is heated in brick kilns or mechanical kilns with little air by means of the beat energy generated by burning firewood to pyrolyze bamboo and produce bamboo charcoal
  • Bamboo destructive distillation: bamboo is heated in a pyrolyzing kettle isolating air to produce bamboo charcoal and bamboo vinegar
  • Bamboo activated carbon: the bamboo material is heated in a brick kiln and activated kiln to get bamboo activated carbon
  • The bamboo activated carbon is widely used in food, pharmaceutical, chemical, defense and metallurgical industries.
  • Activated carbon prepared from Bambusa tulda has been found to be the best in terms of surface area and adsorption capacity
  • Investment of Rs.2 laks is required to produce about 20 tons of charcoal per month
  • 5 tons per day plant for production of activated Carbon may need an investment of about one Crore
