Extensive research is required for continuous bamboo product innovation.

As an example of our research efforts, we have been awarded several Department of Energy grants for the research and development of bamboo biocomposites with Oak Ridge National Laboratories - and proven bamboo biocomposites can displace petroleum-based plastics, are lighter weight and stronger, and take less energy to manufacture.

The development of our Bamboo Nail Laminated Timber system (photo left) has been a cooperative effort with companies such as Magnusson Klemencic, a global leader in structural engineering.

​In addition, we are collaborating with research institutions such as University of Tennessee, The University of Alabama and Auburn University on new product development and advanced materials technologies for the commercialization of bamboo products for new and existing industries.
