The combination of both structural board and dimensional lumber made from green materials utilizing this innovative method meets the objective of the inventors to provide a "total green" building system.
These materials are ultimately designed as structural board and dimensional lumber products, but may also be used for other construction purposes which are non-structural in nature and in various other industries where they may be beneficial. An example is the marine industry because the raw stock (Arundo donax or bamboo) is highly water repellent.
Bamboo will provide a cost effective material superior in performance to wood for the manufacture of engineered building products such as I-beams, laminated beams, roof truss and forming materials for concrete.
Bamboo and nanotechnology will satisfy the need for long-lived building and consumer products such as non-structural panels for wall dividers, temporary dividers, cabinets, countertops, cutting boards, furniture, shelving, tabletops, packaging and crates, pallets, window frames, furring materials and finish flooring panels for decoration.
