Nowadays, our environmental awareness is at an unprecedented climax. Bamboo products are green, low-carbon and environmentally friendly, and have little impact on the environment. Naturally, they have become the primary choice for environmentalists.
Bamboo has the characteristics of green, environmental protection, short growth cycle and high utilization rate. It is recognized as an ideal low-carbon industry development object with unique ecological functions and economic functions. The growth cycle of bamboo is very short. Usually it can be used in just 5 years. Moderate cutting can also optimize the structure of bamboo forest. The recycling rate is high. Bamboo forest is an excellent carbon storage plant resource with good carbon fixation performance. The 1 hectare bamboo forest can fix about 12.75 tons of carbon, which is 1.46 times that of Chinese fir and 1.33 times that of tropical rain forest, which is equivalent to absorbing 46.75 tons of carbon dioxide. Even the various products produced by bamboo raw materials, such as furniture and households, have carbon sequestration and continue to exert their unique carbon fixation performance during use.
The continuous growth of bamboo forests in China has greatly enhanced the absorption of carbon dioxide and made important contributions to reducing world greenhouse gas emissions and coping with global warming.
