EcoPlanet Laboratories Expands Focus as Activated Carbon Technology Finalized

February 27, 2017


EcoPlanet Laboratories (EPB Labs) was originally created as an R&D and testing center focused on the development of a bamboo based activated carbon technology. We were located on the Kowie Bamboo Farm in South Africa's Eastern Cape to be on site and associated with EcoPlanet Bamboo's manufacturing subsidiary Core Carbon. Between 2012 our facility acted as an R&D center, developing the specific technology and specifications for the production of a high end bamboo precursor charcoal and bamboo activated carbon. In addition we provided proximate and ultimate analysis testing for both Core Carbon and a range of external clients.



Now that EcoPlanet Core Carbon's manufacture of carbonized products has been secured, and as bamboo fiber in both Nicaragua and South Africa is approaching maturity, the scope of EPB Laboratories has been expanded to include all science based R&D and product development for all EcoPlanet Bamboo plantations. This includes both the core focus on the timber industries that EcoPlanet Bamboo aims to disrupt - pulp and paper, textiles and engineered timber, but also additional products and markets from the additional parts of our bamboo plants.


Such an expansion would not be possible without a wide range of technology and research partners, and we look forward to continuing to build on these relationships to industrialize bamboo as a truly unique, renewable and superior feedstock that has the ability to provide the world with a suite of sustainable consumer products.
