Beema Bamboo Plantation Intercropping

Clenergen intends to intercrop bamboo on coconut plantations for the purpose of producing wood pellets and expanding the production capacity of Beema Bamboo biomass products.

Clenergen is conducting field trials on the feasibility of intercropping bamboo. Initial tests have shown that the light density, spacing, and soil are all suitable for the cultivation of bamboo. It has been estimated that in order to 1MW of electricity, 750 acres of coconut plantation lands will be required to produce sufficient volume of wood chips. The wood chips produced will also be processed to wood pellets.
