For the Philippines, Beema Bamboo is the first choice of energy-crop, since the climatic conditions are ideal for cultivation. Beema bamboo, an Indian variety that is a high yielding variety of bamboo and as a result of extensive breeding and microbiology applications, the density of the wood is t nearly 5 times that of normal bamboo. Bamboo wood chips have a high calorific value and have been tested and approved for gasification, combustion steam, Pelletisation and Pyrolysis process.
The Clenergen energy-crop of first choice is Beema bamboo, an Indian variety that is a high yielding variety as a result of extensive breeding and the evolutionary increase in is chromosome count, making it nearly 5 times the density of normal bamboo.
Clenergen Philippines has entered into a Memorandum of Agreement (MOA) with a leading Indian-based biotechnology laboratory and micro propagated tissue culture specialist, capable of supplying 200,000 micro propagated tissue culture varieties Beema Bamboo saplings per week.
The laboratory guarantees sapling to be uniform, disease resistant, and asexual, therefore non-invasive and fire retardant. The Company is a technology partner to the ‘National Bamboo Mission, India’ for bamboo tissue culture plants and is certified by Department of Biotechnology, Ministry of Science and Technology, India. It is further accredited by Australian plant Quarantine Inspection service (AQIS)
