In various researches it has become clear that bamboo is an important and very fast CO2 ‘fixator’. This means that bamboo absorbs, during its growth and life until harvest, a relative big amount of CO2 from the air / atmosphere. After the harvest this CO2 will remain in the material and will only be released when this material is burnt.
On the other hand CO2 is created by machines and transport means which are needed to produce the bamboo products and bring them to the customer. It is very important to keep the emission of CO2 during this process as low as possible.
By comparing the CO2 fixation with the emission during production/transport the CO2 balance can be determined. When the CO2 fixation is larger than the emission, the product is CO2 neutral.
Research has shown that most MOSO bamboo products are CO2 neutral.
