Bamboo is a rapidly growing, ecologically neutral product, which regenerates itself, growing to full maturity within 5 years. From a biological point of view, bamboo is classified as a grass and rates as the plant with the fastest growth rate.
Bamboo for commercial usage is largely produced in commercial plantations in the mountain regions of China. The harvesting and processing of bamboo for bamboo-wood and bamboo flooring applications is not associated with any notable waste or polluting processes. All parts of the bamboo plant are utilized and over the last ten years the demand for bamboo products has grown enormously.
