Wooden scantlings have low levels of effectiveness as they do not grip shipped material well and also leave scratches.
What is more, sustained supply of scantlings is uncertain. Finally, they are also environmentally undesirable. Coir Atlas
products address these concerns in effective manner.

Bamboo is readily available, in abundance

India’s steel industry is the third largest in the world today at 80 million tons per year, which is expected to grow to 120
over the next 2 years. About 50% of these are flat sheets and coils, which are transported by road, rail, and sea to their
destinations. An estimated 400,000 trees are required each year to sustain the packaging needs of the Indian steel
industry and this number will grow in correlation to the growth of steel production.

India has a readily available supply of bamboo, grown in the north-eastern and southern states. India has an estimated
10.03 million hectares of bamboo forest and the Indian government actively encourages the use of bamboo over wood.

Bamboo is fast growing

According to the Environmental Bamboo Foundation, “…  Bamboo is the fastest growing woody plant on this planet.
It grows one third faster than the fastest growing trees…” Bamboo is a fast growing grass that yields 20x amount of
building material than trees grown on the same land. What is more, bamboo forests mature in 4-6 years as compared
to 30-50 years for a stand of trees

Bamboo is sustainable

Bamboo forests actually die if not harvested regularly. Thus, by harvesting mature bamboo, we actually help maintain the forest.
