Brief description of our Beema Bamboo Project:
Beema Bamboo is a tissue cultured plant that has been developed by Dr. Bharathi at GROW MORE BIOTECHNOLOGY LTD.,HOSUR
It has some very special features viz. has no thorns,very small hole in the centre thus much more weight per metre compared to normal bamboo and does not flower which in case of normal bamboo indicates death of the plant and in addition each plant when fully grown from 3rd.year onward generates over 300 kg.of oxygen every year,that is sufficient for one person for a whole year and absorbs 400 to 420 kg. of Carbon dioxide from atmosphere per year
Auroville bamboo centre and AuroService collaboratively, agreed to plant Bheema bamboo experiment project in one and a half Acres of land for this joint venture and an MOU was signed between Auroservice and Auroville Bamboo Centre in 2018 and financial grant from SDZ of Netherlands made it possible to take up the plantation in September,2018.
