Bamboo charcoal comes from pieces of bamboo shoots which are harvested after at least five years of them being planted.
They are burned in ovens at temperatures ranging from 800 to 1200°C.
It is beneficial to the environment since it reduces the usual pollutants released in normal charcoal production drastically.
When used, it releases much less air pollution than traditional charcoal.
It has excellent absorption properties too. As it is charcoal, it can do all the things the regular one can, such as water purification.
Due to bamboo charcoal’s longevity, it can be used in many applications where regular charcoal can not be.
Even Edison considered using it to coat the filament during the invention of the light bulb! IBANSS is trying to make this technology commercially viable in a sustainable way.
