Centre for Bamboo Development

HoD Dr. Vipin K Chawla


In view of the increasing importance of bamboo as an important resource for renewable fiber for making  wood alternates, and the role being played by the Institute in development of bamboo based industrial materials, need for focusing the R&D efforts was felt. Accordingly, a Centre for Bamboo Development (CBD) was established at the Institute in January 2001. Mandate of CBD includes development of bamboo and its composites as engineering materials for various end use applications, techno-economic feasibility studies of bamboo composite/panel materials.  CBD drives its strength from the core competence available at the Institute in various related basic disciplines including adhesives technology, bamboo processing and preservation, products development, material/product testing, human resource development (training).  CBD at IPIRTI has already become a nodal centre for development of industrial product from bamboo in the country


Keeping the increasing role of R&D and Training in the development of bamboo sector in the country and in the region, it is proposed to upgrade CBD into a Centre of Excellence.
