Bamboo farming means more than
only removing carbon

Better Soils

At nature's best, because of bamboo

Bamboo stops land degradation and makes soils healthy again. With 60-70% degraded soils in the European Union, we need to act now with efficient and sustainable solutions to maintain food security, biodiversity and climate stability. Imagine this: bamboo leaves fall throughout the year and create a thick nutritious humus layer that enriches the soil, lowers soil temperature and retains water.

The extensive root system facilitates oxygen, water and carbon flow. Because bamboo is a pesticide-free crop and neither tillage nor clear-cutting is applied, the soil can recover and remain healthy; a solid foundation for a robust ecosystem.

Regenerative Agriculture

Accelerating the transition we need

Growing bamboo fits within the current vision of nature-inclusive agriculture and carbon farming. The fast-growing grass is one of the fastest renewable raw materials, provides a highly versatile material and offers European farmers a sustainable green business model.

With the rapidly increasing demand for European bio-based materials, the great potential for carbon storage and the positive impact on the planet and climate, growing bamboo is a wise choice for the European agricultural sector. Bamboo farming ensures a more biodiverse agriculture.

Supporting Climate

backed by European regulations

Cop 21 in Paris and the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change recognised bamboo as a strategic tool to adapt to and mitigate the effects of climate change. Managed bamboo fields can store tens of tonnes of CO2 per hectare per year in the soil. Processed into long-life materials such as building materials, bamboo stores many tonnes of carbon in addition to soil storage. Up to 1.6 tonnes of CO2 can be stored per tonne of bamboo.

Bamboo carbon sinks significantly reduce the negative impacts of greenhouse gases on the planet. With the Carbon Removal and Carbon Farming Regulation (CRCF), Europe is actively supporting farmers to remove carbon through nature-based solutions. Let us take responsibility and catalyse the establishment of managed bamboo carbon sinks.

Supercharging the Biobased Industry

with best care for environment and biodiversity

Bamboo is revolutionising European agriculture. It offers the agricultural sector opportunities to build a green business model based on a rapidly renewable and versatile raw material. There is demand for bamboo from almost every sector: construction materials, textiles, pharma, food, beauty & healtcare, furniture, flooring, composites industry, …

Farmers can be suppliers in a sustainable and profitable way as part of a green economy. The demand for locally grown bamboo in Europe is many times greater than the supply.

By replacing materials with a large footprint with the CO2-negative bamboo, a lot of emissions are avoided. Avoided CO2 emissions are also an important part of a climate solution.

Carbon removal, bamboo & positive impact

What is natural carbon removal?

Nature-based carbon removal is removing and storing excess CO₂ from the atmosphere or oceans. Nature-based removal methods use the power of nature in combination with human ingenuity. Storing carbon through for example bamboo plants in the soils, but also in buildings where for example engineered bamboo wood, bamboo insulation or bamboo furiniture is applied.

Does offsetting help to reverse climate change?

We all have a responsibility to avoid offsetting being used as greenwashing. Airlines, oil companies and others that claim to be 'neutral' while only offsetting their emissions are not contributing enough to actually reverse climate change. ONCRA believes in supporting removers by buying and reporting on certificates after everything has been done to reduce emissions, and buying actual removal certificates, as prescribed by the Oxford Offsetting Principles.

Why is bamboo a champion in removing CO2 from the atmosphere?

Among other things because of its rapid growth and longevity, bamboo is a very efficient crop for removing CO2 from the atmosphere. As a result, it stores a lot of carbon in the plant itself and in the soil. When bamboo is processed into sustainable materials with a long lifespan, carbon is locked up for a long time. Emissions are also avoided by using bamboo as an alternative to fossil materials. Thus, a huge carbon sink can be created with the bamboo fields of the various bamboo farms. In addition, bamboo offers further benefits for soil, biodiversity and sustainable economic development. The amount of CO2 stored can reach 1,662 tonnes of CO2 per m³ of bamboo, looking at the densest materials. A bamboo forest, depending on the carbon already present in the soil, can store hundreds of tonnes of CO2 in the soil.

Why is bamboo farming sustainable?

One bamboo plant consists of several culms. Every year, new shoots grow from the mother plant. Typically, 20-25% of the culms in a sustainable bamboo forest or plantation can be harvested every year. Unlike trees, the bamboo plant does not die after harvesting, preventing deforestation. Harvesting the mature plants actually increases the yield and quality of the plantation. A sustainably managed bamboo forest or plantation also has a high capacity to absorb CO2. On the bamboo farms, no pesticides are applied, no ploughing and no clear-cutting is carried out. Bamboo is green all year round and improves the soil. Growing bamboo is water-efficient. A mature bamboo forest retains huge amounts of water in the soil. In short, a perfect foundation for a vibrant ecosystem with lots of insects, birds, small land animals, funghi and plants.

What is the difference between 'credits and 'certificates'?

Basically, 'credits' or 'certificates' are the same thing. They both represent 1 tonne of CO2 removed. However, the EU Carbon Removal Certification Framework (CRCF) among other things aims to combat greenwashing by allowing companies to demonstrate their action in this area. On this basis, by using the word 'certificates', Europe is trying to make the difference clear from 'credits', which sometimes have a negative connotation.

Why are carbon removal certificates "anti-greenwashing"?

ONCRA certificates follow the Oxford Offsetting Principles. These are four key rules to define proper offsetting. 1) buyers must reduce their emissions as much as possible 2) carbon credits must actually remove carbon (i.e. use removal credits) and 3) store them for a long time & 4) your actions must support the development of net zero aligned offsetting practices. The EU Carbon Removal Certification Framework (CRCF) aims to scale up carbon removal activities and combat greenwashing by enabling companies to demonstrate their action in this area.

What are the costs for buyers?

ONCRA aims to revolutionise the carbon credits market and lower the entry threshold for removers. The goal should be to remove as much CO2 from the atmosphere as possible. Many removal projects are not launched because the investment to get carbon credits into the market is too high compared to the scale. However, there are many 'smaller' removal projects that together can absorb a huge amount of CO2 and store carbon. ONCRA is breaking a lance for this remover segment. Instead of an up-front cost, ONCRA charges a fee of 7% on each certificate sold. That way, certification and monitoring costs are paid off by the sale of the certificates.

How can I be sure that removal actually will take place when I buy Bamboo CRC?

It is important to have the assurance that your unique CRC is registered in your name and that each tonne of CO2 removed is monetised only once. Your purchase and unique certificate number will be registered in a public registry ( https://oncra.org/ledger-login/ ). Each transaction must be registered with ONCRA to be legally valid. In this way, ONCRA guarantees that each tonne of CO2 removed can only be claimed by one buyer.

What does ONCRA stand for?

Oncra is the world's first Open Natural Carbon Removal Framework. It works as a lean and reliable certifier for nature-based carbon removal projects, in close cooperation with local governments (provinces), the European Commission and a broad network of innovative entrepreneurs sequestering carbon with nature-based processes. Supported by ASN Bank, the Province of Gelderland and South Holland, Oncra was launched during the COP27 UN climate conference in Egypt. Oncra aims to become the simple, open and synergistic framework that will enable many farmers, builders and innovators to account for and monetise the carbon they store. Bamboologic has partnered with ONCRA to establish a methodology and programme for removing carbon from bamboo, enabling bamboo farmers to invest in carbon removal.

What is different about ONCRA compared to for example Verra, or Gold Standard?

ONCRA focuses on science-based and measurement-based carbon removal. Open natural Carbon Removel Accountancy (ONCRA) is a complementary framework that enables the use of existing 'methods' developed by Gold Standard, Verra and others. The ONCRA fee structure with no upfront cost to the remover lowers the barrier to entry in the carbon market. In this way, we facilitate the growth of new removal enterprises and strategies in line with what the climate crisis needs.

Do ONCRA Carbon Removal Credits account for more than carbon?

Yes, by default. ONCRA accepts only nature-based carbon removal projects. By conducting a 'donut check', we evaluate whether the project falls within planetary boundaries and social foundations. Our projects all deliver 'multipotent' benefits, which we do not call 'additional', but 'central'. Benefits such as increased biodiversity, clean water, meaningful jobs, are examples of how ONCRA credits tick many SDGs, result in a holistic approach and guarantee their financial and impact value.

Are these credits regulated?

Until now, there is no regulation for carbon credits. But the European Union is on the right track, working on regulations around carbon removal certificates under the Carbon Removal Certification Framework (CRCF). ONCRA carbon removal certificates have been set up in the philosophy of these regulations. ONCRA closely follows the developments of these regulations and is in close contact with the EU through advisory groups.

ONCRA closely follows the developments of these regulations and is in close contact with the EU through advisory groups.

Buying certificates & ONCRA

How does the buying process work?

1. After choosing a removal project from which you want to purchase CRC, add the desired number of CRC to your cart and complete the purchase process. 2. You will receive confirmation of your purchase. If you are a company or organisation and would like an invoice of your purchase, please send an e-mail to admin@bamboologic.eu with the proof of purchase of your CRC purchase and your details for invoice generation. 3. After your purchase, ONCRA will send you your certificate and a login for the public Ledger. A 7% administration fee will be deducted from your purchase for ONCRA. VAT is applicable to your purchase. 4. If you would like to purchase a larger volume of CRC, are looking for a customised CRC portfolio or just help determining your emissions or footprint, contact us at carbonremoval@bamboologic.eu or +31 24 23 40 606

What happens with the revenues of my certificates?

After deducting the ONCRA administration fee, the revenue is paid to the remover. The funds are used to enable the remover to finance its carbon removal project. Part of the amount is used for R&D, marketing and management for the benefit of bamboo carbon removal projects.

What are the costs for buyers?

ONCRA aims to revolutionise the carbon credits market and lower the entry threshold for removers. The goal should be to remove as much CO2 from the atmosphere as possible. Many removal projects are not launched because the investment to get carbon credits into the market is too high compared to the scale. However, there are many 'smaller' removal projects that together can absorb a huge amount of CO2 and store carbon. ONCRA is breaking a lance for this remover segment. Instead of an up-front cost, ONCRA charges a fee of 7% on each certificate sold. That way, certification and monitoring costs are paid off by the sale of the certificates.

How can I be sure that removal actually will take place when I buy Bamboo CRC?

It is important to have the assurance that your unique CRC is registered in your name and that each tonne of CO2 removed is monetised only once. Your purchase and unique certificate number will be registered in a public registry ( https://oncra.org/ledger-login/ ). Each transaction must be registered with ONCRA to be legally valid. In this way, ONCRA guarantees that each tonne of CO2 removed can only be claimed by one buyer.

Can I have more information about my chosen removal project?

Of course. You are investing in a carbon removal project, so you are entitled to information and transparency. You can contact us via the 'contact' or 'information' buttons on the website. We will provide you with the necessary information and help you through the purchase process. If you wish, you can get in touch with the remover. Would you like to visit your removal project? Feel free to let us know. If you would like to purchase a larger volume of CRC, are looking for a customised CRC portfolio or just help determining your emissions or footprint, contact us at carbonremoval@bamboologic.eu or +31 24 23 40 606

What does ONCRA stand for?

Oncra is the world's first Open Natural Carbon Removal Framework. It works as a lean and reliable certifier for nature-based carbon removal projects, in close cooperation with local governments (provinces), the European Commission and a broad network of innovative entrepreneurs sequestering carbon with nature-based processes. Supported by ASN Bank, the Province of Gelderland and South Holland, Oncra was launched during the COP27 UN climate conference in Egypt. Oncra aims to become the simple, open and synergistic framework that will enable many farmers, builders and innovators to account for and monetise the carbon they store. Bamboologic has partnered with ONCRA to establish a methodology and programme for removing carbon from bamboo, enabling bamboo farmers to invest in carbon removal.

What is different about ONCRA compared to for example Verra, or Gold Standard?

ONCRA focuses on science-based and measurement-based carbon removal. Open natural Carbon Removel Accountancy (ONCRA) is a complementary framework that enables the use of existing 'methods' developed by Gold Standard, Verra and others. The ONCRA fee structure with no upfront cost to the remover lowers the barrier to entry in the carbon market. In this way, we facilitate the growth of new removal enterprises and strategies in line with what the climate crisis needs.

Do ONCRA Carbon Removal Credits account for more than carbon?

Yes, by default. ONCRA accepts only nature-based carbon removal projects. By conducting a 'donut check', we evaluate whether the project falls within planetary boundaries and social foundations. Our projects all deliver 'multipotent' benefits, which we do not call 'additional', but 'central'. Benefits such as increased biodiversity, clean water, meaningful jobs, are examples of how ONCRA credits tick many SDGs, result in a holistic approach and guarantee their financial and impact value.

Are these credits regulated?

Until now, there is no regulation for carbon credits. But the European Union is on the right track, working on regulations around carbon removal certificates under the Carbon Removal Certification Framework (CRCF). ONCRA carbon removal certificates have been set up in the philosophy of these regulations. ONCRA closely follows the developments of these regulations and is in close contact with the EU through advisory groups.
