dc.description.abstract This study is a feasibility analysis seeking to answer two questions: Can bamboo be used as a replacement fiber source for paper products, and do market conditions offer potential for a new supplier to enter the industry? Research came from working with scientists in paper engineering, as well as industry research to uncover the potential for a new supplier in the U.S. paper industry. Booshoot staff agrees that in order to succeed in the paper industry the company must supply full grown, chipped bamboo to manufacturers in the sanitary paper industry, a small niche in the larger U.S paper industry. Based on this research Booshoot Gardens, LLC has already begun to find investors and expand the business into the U.S. Paper Industry. en_US
