Booming Bamboo Revisted – the (re)discovery of a sustainable material with endless possibilities

Architectural engineer dr. ir. Pablo van der Lugt obtained his PhD at Technical University Delft in 2008 for his research about the environmental impact (LCA) of engineered biobased materials. Since then he has been active in the building industry as senior consultant on the themes sustainability, circularity and biobased building, ever maintaining a connection with the academia through TU Delft – AMS Institute. He is the author of several books on biobased building, including Tomorrow’s Timber www.tomorrows-timber.com  (2020) and Booming Bamboo (2017) www.boomingbamboo.com of which the revisited edition will be launched spring 2024. He regularly publishes his research findings in popular magazines and scientific journals and conference proceedings (his publication list can be found here https://www.tudelft.nl/staff/p.vanderlugt/). 

Van der Lugt is a highly demanded speaker following several formats, ranging from TED and Pecha Kucha talks, to keynote presentations at high-level international conferences, including the International Climate Conferences in Paris (COP 21), Katowice (COP 24) and Glasgow (COP 26).  

In his keynote presentation during the European Bamboo Expo he will touch upon the latest innovations with respect to engineered bamboo and sketch a future outlook regarding bamboo in Europe, including the development of a local-based bamboo economy.
