Bamboo chemical utilization
The latest research showed that there are many different
flavone glycosides in bamboo leaves, which have excellent
physiological activities as anti-free radical, anti-oxidation and anti-aging
Green-dry leaves bamboo were picked in autumn and extracted. After
boiling the bamboo leaves in water, the extract was concentrated in
vacuum, and the impurities removed using the ethanol precipitation method,
to give a fine bamboo leaf juice. The bamboo beer was prepared by adding
the juice to the original
beer, then mixed, filtered and bottled. The amount of the juice added, taking
its total flavonoids (TF) amount as index, was between 10 to 50 mg per liter,
depending on requirements.
In addition to the general characteristics of beer, bamboo beer showed
multiple health benefits, such as lowering blood lipids and preventing heart
diseases. Furthermore, bamboo beer presents a typical delicate fragrance
of bamboo to match the beer flavor. This health beer is available in Chinese
Flavonoids made from bamboo leaves are also used to make medicine
such as capsules.

Agriculture: As a carrier of organic manure and micro-organism in the soil, bamboo
charcoal can improve the vigour of the soil, so people use it as a good soil improver.
Chemicals: Bamboo charcoal can be used as the raw materials of bamboo active carbon.
Bamboo charcoal shows strong absorption because of the special structure of micro holes
of the bamboo stem, and the function would be more outstanding after it is activated. Tests
show that the absorption properties of bamboo active carbon are extremely good.
Medicine and health care: Pillows and mats made of bamboo charcoal can soothe the
nerves, relax backaches, and control snoring. Bamboo charcoal also has the functions of
deodorization, dehumidifier and fungicide, which are essential to family needs.
Environment protection: Bamboo charcoal can be used as a water clarifier, shield off
electromagnetic waves and absorber of poisonous gases. Pollution indoors caused by
poisonous materials would be absorbed if the panels were made of bamboo charcoal
instead of the asbestos flakeboard and plastic boards. 95% of the nicotine and other
poisonous materials would be absorbed if cigarette filters were made of bamboo charcoal.
Other fields: Bamboo charcoal can be made into many kinds of compound materials in the
material industry. It also can be made into handicrafts, feed additives and high capacity
rechargeable storage batteries, etc.
