Bamboo can be used to make charcoal.


  • Bamboo as an alternative renewable energy resource for households, 12 December by HEDON Household Energy Network:
    • "Rajesh Bajpai and colleagues write that bamboo 'with over 5000 applications, should be considered as the best amongst other known biomass resources, but, it is still not used extensively. This is the world’s largest grass and already known to us for its thematic uses like in construction work, furniture, utensils, fiber & paper....Time has come to explore its usage as a renewable energy resource.'"
