Water and energy are the strategic issues of the 21st century. Access to water and sanitation is now part of basic human rights. Bamboo For Life has created a green technology that perfectly addresses these issues. The Bambou-Assainissement® technology is used to treat industrial and domestic wastewater but also to create three other related functionalities essential for our future. -We produce bamboo biomass that can be converted into energy or raw material -We sequester CO2 to improve the quality of the air -We provide bioclimatic cooling in an open environment to lower city temperatures down to -20 °C. And all this by treating industrial or domestic wastewater with a technology that does not produce sewage sludge (unique in the world) and is able to make a zero discharge in the natural environment. Our goal to date is to design, finance, build and operate multi-profit processing units for industrial and resilient cities of tomorrow.
