The article explains the functions of bamboo charcoal. According to the author, bamboo charcoal is used in health products, for household needs and also has environmental uses. The Japanese government has launched studies on bamboo charcoal and has learned to develop bamboo vinegar used in clothing and food. In Taiwan, a study is being conducted aimed at developing kidney dialysis technology based on bamboo charcoal. He adds that carbonizing bamboo charcoal creates a product with high adsoprtion over a wide array of chemicals.
