we put all the photos of inside doors

also where we see logo ”peugeot” and logo total/….

Even to Peugeot, Total did not say it was Bamboo….

Watch the TV program here

they speak about the Peugeot 208 after 6 minutes…

Bamboo Fibre the product

Bamboo fiber different sizes

Bamboo Fibre the product

The commodity of the future is BAMBOO FIBRES.

For the moment, we are among the only one in the world extracting fibres from bamboo mechanically and not either by ‘steam explosion’ or with chemicals, like in China for example.

This does preserve all the ‘fantastic’ properties of bamboo,

Since there is really no chemicals at all,

We have the “Organic certification” issued by the USA certification company,

The production consists of mainly four BIG Families of Products:

1.- Short Bamboo Fibres

2.- Medium Bamboo Fibres

3.- Long Bamboo Fibres

4.- Short Carbon Bamboo Fibres

I.- Short Bamboo Fibres:

In different ‘particle sizes’ (granulometry) 

Measurements in Microns – µ  (1.000 Microns = 1 millimeter)

From   50 µ  to 1,000 µ

with all kind of intermediary sizes.

II.- Medium fibres:

From 750 µ  to 2,000 µ



III. – Long fibers: to be made into mats

2,500µ  25 mm and up

aa) non woven mat


bb)woven  mats

looks like woven fibre glass I do not have Photo

to be then used  exactly on the same way as ‘fiberglass’ or ‘carbon fiber’ with the advantages that bamboo is lighter / 6 times then fibreglass) ; stronger (5 to 7 times) and GREENER. (Carbon footprint) and harmless for health.

And recyclable.

                 Used in aviation / automobile / ship building etc…



IV – Nano Bamboo Carbon Fiber:  

to be used in many different ways

– Cosmetics like to make a ‘mascara’

   Bamboo Carbon Fibers do have huge electro magnetic proprieties  The radio waves seem to fade out / disappear…

– For pharmaceutical industry.

– for electronic applications   have a look at:



Why Bamboo Fibre ?

10IMG4443Why Bamboo Fibre ?


   How did we reach this conclusion ?

We did created  Chalet & Bamboo in Chiang Mai / Thailand.

and wished to build prefab Cabins of 20 and 35 sq meter for export.

But we found out that with ecological, or at least non harmful methods of treatment, we could only reach 96 % efficiency, to get rid of the insects.

We tried ‘borax’ as well as ‘lime’ both with same results…

Bamboo being such a fabulous plant, we needed to find a way to use it.

By extracting the fibres mechanically in opposition of what was going on until then – ‘Steam explosion method’ or HEAVY chemicals.

We could then mix them with any kind of resin to reinforce the latter.

Not to use as a filler, but a reinforcement.

We can mix those fibres with Petrol derivative resins as well as with vegetal resins.  PE / PP and or PLA or even PBS/ TBS etc…with natural fibres, in this case it would be BAMBOO.

 We mix up to 80 % Bamboo fibre for 20 % resin as MASS % it means in weight… (since Bamboo is so light, in volume it is BIG)

Density of Bamboo: < 0,5

Density of any resin – always > 1.00

Depending on the size of the particles, we deliver in 15 KG and 20 KG vacuum bags as on the picture:

we can make compound granules with it or mix it directly with resin.

We can make mats- woven and non- woven mats it will then be used exactly as Fiberglass, and/ or carbon fibre…



The commodity of the future is Bamboo fibres !!!

 If you look into Bamboo- you know already a lot, but as you know, bamboo does have so many uses; it is difficult to produce an exhaustive list.

Some General Facts.

.- The first electric light bulbs by Thomas Edison, used a carbonised piece of bamboo as a filament.
.- Alexander Graham Bell made the first phonograph needle out of bamboo.
.- Bamboo provided the first re-greening in Hiroshima after the atomic blast, and was the first plant to regenerate in Vietnam after vast areas were defoliated by Agent Orange.
.- Bamboo releases 35% more oxygen than trees and can reduce carbon dioxide (CO2) by sequestering 12 tons of CO2 per hectare.
.- Bamboo can be made into a soft, breathable and naturally anti-bacterial textile.
.- Bamboo is the fastest-growing woody plant in the world.

.- After being planted, the first harvest is after 3 to 5 years (depending on the specie). And then each year after that for 80 (eighty) years;
     compared to up to 60 years for hardwoods.

.- Over one billion people in the world live in bamboo houses.
     Bamboo is so inbred in the villages where it grows, it is incredible.

.- For example our secretary, when she was born in her Village in Thailand, her umbilical cord was sectioned with bamboo piece.

It is customs in S.E. Asia, to use it, to avoid ‘tetanus’ with non stainless knives….
