The fundamental need to educate the consumer and the world about the benefits of utilizing a sustainable biomass, bamboo, in place of trees specifically, in the production of charcoal for use in fuel, water filtration, and agricultural applications.

Introduction of bamboo charcoal will meet the demand for an affordable renewable energy source for both urban and rural households.
