Bamboo is a substitute building material, which is renewable, environment-friendly, and widely available. As the wood resources are diminishing and restrictions are imposed on felling the natural forests bamboo took more importance. Due to its rapid growth, its adaptability to most climatic conditions and due to its properties bamboo comes as a very suitable alternative.
Timber demand is increasing worldwide at a rapid rate but the timber supply is less. Due to its properties, bamboo can suitably replace timber and other materials in construction. Industrially treated bamboo has shown great potential for the production of composite materials and components which are cost-effective. Bamboo has several unique advantages like the ability to grow fast and also it matures quickly. Additionally, it can grow abundantly and that too at a lower cost which makes it cheap.
Bamboo is also good in biomass production. It is often introduced into the banks or streams for soil erosion control. One bamboo plant’s closely matted roots can bind up to six cubic meters of soil.
Demands of bamboo as a building material:
Housing is a basic need for the human being and is now becoming a burden for low-income group. Thus, we need cost-effective housing and bamboo is the best building material, result for that as:
