Who is removing the carbon ?
Bamboologic (Bambulogic Europe B.V)
Bamboologic installs bamboo fields in Europe and sells the raw bamboo or primary processed bamboo as a base material for the production of sustainable & durable alternatives for hardwood, steel, PVC, composite materials & cotton. Europe is the largest export market for bamboo products. There are so many obvious sustainability reasons to provide bamboo from Europe for the European market.
Bamboo is a zero-waste crop and a sustainable alternative for many industrial used raw materials in more than 10.000 different products.
Bamboo thrives very well on degraded land and regenerates the soil in good condition. Taken into account that approximately one third of all European farm land is degraded, bamboo can play an important role in the agricultural and green future of Europe.
Since bamboo holds a lot of water in the soil, allows other vegetation to thrive and always having green leaves they are a welcome habitat for a lot of animals and insects.
Bamboo is the fastest growing grass, with very high levels of CO2 sequestration and oxygen production. It rapidly sequesters carbon in biomass and the soil; taking it out of the air faster than almost any other plant. Long-lived bamboo products also store a lot of carbon. Therefore bamboo is an ideal tool to attain the net-zero emissions goals and fit within the European Green Deal.
Bamboo is not only a very efficient plant in terms of CO2 sequestration, it also takes large quantities of nitrate out of the soil, holds water in the soil, prevents erosion and regenerates the soil.
Bamboo only has to be planted once for the next 60 to 100 years. After it is pruned or harvested, it grows back very fast, making bamboo one of the fastest renewable raw materials. In every new growth season the bamboo plants become bigger and thus sequestering more CO2. Bamboologic’s carbon strategy is based on the prescribed bamboo industry guidelines.
What is done with the earnings of CRC sales?
With the earnings from the carbon credits Bamboologic can enlarge their fields. With every CRC sold, new bamboo plants are planted.
Bamboologic is owner of the bamboo fields Two year control measurements
Following the ONCRA Guidelines claims and measurements are verified and peer reviewed. The natural carbon removal method is assessed on a qualitative as well as a quantitative level. The determination of the CO2 sequestration potential is based on scientific studies, live samples and testing. Oncra compares, evaluates and validates the data sets with industry standards. The Carbon Remover allows Oncra at all times to verify the data internally or via independent parties.
