Three foreign countries propose to buy bamboo charcoal

May 1, 2017
Offers to buy Myanmar’s bamboo charcoal have been received from three foreign countries including the United States, according to the Commerce Ministry.

Myanmar’s bamboo charcoal is being marketed to penetrate the Japanese, American and Vietnamese markets. Samples of the charcoal havealready been sent to those countries.

A kilo of bamboo charcoal will sell for Ks1,500 on average. In early 2017, Japan, the United States and Viet Nam have proposed to purchase Myanmar’s bamboo charcoal, said U Win Myint, the director of the Trade Promotion Department under the Ministry of Commerce.

Myanmar’s bamboo charcoal was previously exported to Japan, but technical shortcomings led to market fade in late 2013.

The bamboo charcoal is utilised mostly in Japan and China as a fuel. Additionally, it is also used to purify water and eliminate organic impurities and smells.
