bamboo supporting poles which are highly required in agriculture or for the selection cutting and processing of gumbo for export this is another community experience that has developed unique processing methods based upon local resources resulting in products with added value it is estimated that the responsible development of a bamboo industry in the region can generate about 10,000 places of employment in the next 10 years in response to the need to find alternatives to timber in the mids of our reality with deforestation and indiscriminate logging the government of the province of pichincha through the Center for learning and technology transfer Samba has developed a scheme of transformation of the material using giant bamboo slats this tactical process achieved impressive results in the form of planks beams boards and more investment in public infrastructure built with bamboo is particularly important and coherent because it directly benefits local producers while adding aesthetic values and identity you bamboo advanced design and construction techniques and the
the moisture level was one of the issues we faced if the moisture is removed then the mold problem will be solved however the loss of moisture would cause the self to collapse and the bamboo processed as a steering wheel the material could take in moisture and expand so my des came up with the method of filling a special pressure furnace with vapor to restore the bamboo cells to their original shape a characteristic of bamboo cells is that the cell walls have the best moisture absorbency when placed in a special pressure furnace and exposed to vapor the cell walls regain their original shape when the moisture reached 20% the bamboo regained its original thickness once it s taken out the pressure furnace it can be dried again without fear of the cells collapsing because there s no moisture within the cells this is how the takuna succeeded in making a stable material
into charcoal or activated carbon the briquettes are used for cooking and drying tea while the charcoal itself has a variety of important uses in gas and water purification sewage treatment air filters gas masks and respirators and in a range of medicines every single day bamboo is used for fiber or food by more than two and a half billion people around the world used for generations as scaffolding and building materials in Asia and the South Pacific bamboo is now an increasing demand around the world bamboo is miraculous when growing freely in the wild it produces between 6 and 12 tons of biomass per acre per year while the highly cultivated APC group bamboo yields between 20 and 25 tons per acre per year good management always makes good financial sense and with more than 100 years of combined plantation management experience the APC group is primed to become the
