In developing countries, by utilizing locally available, fast-growing bamboo, we seek to empower and educate individuals to find alternative means for income generation through the production of bamboo charcoal. These entrepreneurs will spur a market for this cleaner energy alternative and help to grow bamboo charcoal industry.

By addressing the top of the charcoal supply chain with a sustainable and viable charcoal alternative, we transition local charcoal producers away from illegal deforestation practices, increase household productivity and savings, and bolster local economies and entrepreneurship around a new bamboo-based industry.

Carbon Bamboo has current projects in Mexico, Jamaica, and Guatemala with two more consulting projects in Africa and Northern Thailand.
