Bamboo is one of the fastest growing plants in the world. It is rapidly renewable and widely used today in the manufacture of products. The global market for bamboo is estimated to be more than $60 billion, and is rapidly growing. When coupled with additional products that could be manufactured using bamboo fiber, the scale of the industry becomes sizeable and, in time, is projected to be valued in the billions of dollars within the United States. The areas of use are very broad ranging from- trucks, railroad ties, beams, low cost housing, filtration, additive material feedstock and furniture. In the current work, bamboo fibers in a range of multi-scale intermediates have been utilized in processes such as wet-laid mats, extrusion-compression molded thermoplastic bamboo intermediates, continuous-discontinuous overmolded, additive manufacturing and strands. These intermediates have enabled applications in furniture, acoustic paneling, health care, railroad ties, automotive, filtration, prosthetics and sporting applications. This presentation will outline the materials, design and modeling, processing and applications development of bio-based bamboo composites. The use of bamboo in creating complex additive manufactured components will be detailed. The theoretical studies will be woven into the applications by way of several case studies.
