Tamil Nadu Agricultural University – TNAU has recently designed an ‘oxygen park’ (Beema Bamboo) inside its campus. Tamil Nadu Agricultural University is located in Coimbatore.

Being built on 1.45 acres of land, special kind of Beema Bamboo saplings will be planted in this park.

Beema Bamboo

  • Beema Bamboo is a clone selected from Bambusa Balcooa. It is a species of bamboo that, along with giving high biomass yield, is the fastest growing plant. It can grow to a height of one and a half feet in a day.
  • In addition, insurance bamboo is the best carbon sink for reducing carbon dioxide in the atmosphere.
  • It may be noted that, when Beema bamboo develops, it gives about 300 kg of oxygen, and absorbs 80 tons of carbon dioxide. It does not need to be re-grown after every crop cycle.
  • They are produced through their tissues; they also adapt themselves to different types of soil and climate. The calorific value of Beema bamboo is approximately equal to that of coal. This is the reason that cement industries have started buying this bamboo for their boilers.

National Bamboo Mission

The National Bamboo Mission was launched in 2018-19. It is currently being implemented in 21 states.
