"Bio Carbon Capture" by bamboo is an approach to neutralize the fossil fuel emissions, based on capturing Carbon di-oxide from the atmospheric air by the process of photosynthesis by fast growing clones of bamboo, specially developed for high biomass production as bio-carbon sink.
Bamboo absorbs up to 80 tons of carbon di-oxide per acre every year (200 tons /Ha/year)
Bio carbon capture is at its best when the fast-growing Bamboo clone is grown with all the required nutrition provided scientifically, precisely and in time, which is known as "Precision Farming". Bamboo, under ideal condition, one plant can sequester 450 kgs. of carbon dioxide every year (over 80 tons of carbon dioxide per acre/year). The carbon content in the Bamboo varies between 48 to 52% in its biomass depending on the parts of the bamboo.
Bamboo is the best & practical atmospheric carbon sequestering tree. By planting genetically superior clones and following the precision farming practices, including agricultural inputs such as irrigation, fertilizer application, inter cultivation operation, the harvest starts from third year with an initial yield of 30 tons per acre and increases to 35 tons in the next year and stabilizes at 40 tons from 5th year onwards. Under High Density Plantation Carbon Sequestration get maximised in the year 4 while in a Low-Density Plantation Carbon Sequestration is maximum in the year 6-7.
