High-performance environmentally friendly bamboo based construction material

The construction industry is having a devastating impact on the environment and current post-disaster shelter provision is inadequate

Bamboo as a construction material is lighter than steel or concrete but equally strong and a better insulator. With access to new and energy saving technology this innovation supports green construction, delivering a zero carbon and zero waste solution to the built environment. Its flexibility also ensures versatile and quick applications. Bambuild also educates the local community via a na-tional bamboo community training centre.

She got her Ph.D. degree from the University of São Paulo, Brazil, with her thesis focused on the Development of high-performance bamboo-based materials through densification process. Parallel to her Ph.D. studies, she started a social project, based on bamboo, in 2019 in Brazil, financed by the University of São Paulo, aiming at economically helping low-income local people. As the coordinator of this project, she has organized several courses related to bamboo for the public. The outcomes of her doctorate research and this social project greatly motivated her to establish BamBuild, in October 2020, with the financial support of Fundação de Amparo à Pesquisa do Estado de São Paulo, FAPESP, through a PIPE project (innovative research in small companies), devoting to promote this sustainable material. more
