We have access to 44,000 hectares of wild growing bamboo, and we have done this in partnership with the local land owners, and local farmers. We have legalised land agreements and supply quota agreements in place with these farmers & land owners.
It is estimated that we have access over 7 million metric tons of raw bamboo across the 44,000 hectares that we control.
To produce the total demand of chips or pellets from a regular forest (wood) could, in the worst case, lead to deforestation. We all know that in many countries deforestation often leads to unstable land, which can cause mudslides. In many cases it also leads to desertification of the land.
