Paper Title
Bamboo as Eco friendly Substitute of Wood Timber
  Mrs Ritashree Khanikar Dutta

Bamboo belongs to the family Poaceae and subfamily Bambusaideae. It is an evergreen perennial flowering plants and one of the fastest-growing plants in the world. Growing human population increase the consumption per capita and cause scarcity of some natural resources. The demand of natural resources specially wood cause rapid extraction of these resources with the depletion of forests. Again depletion of forest has devastating effect on climate change. So searching of alternative materials that can be used aside from wood becomes a very important point to save our environment. Due to its natural characteristics and good mechanical properties in recent time bamboo is recognised as conventional construction materials. Bamboo can be used as valuable and superior alternate for wood composite manufactured, such as for pulp and paper, stripboards, mat boards, veneer, plywood, particleboard and fibre board. Moreover, several researches have used it as raw material for structural composites such as Oriented Strand Board (OSB), Glue Laminated Timber (GLT), Parallel Strip Lumber (PSL) and Oriented Strand Lumber (OSL) although there are several differences between bamboo and wood for example macroscopic and microscopic characteristics, chemical composition, physical and mechanical properties.

Keywords- Key Words: Climate change, mechanical properties, building material, alternative use
