Bamboo is regarded as a major resource that meets the need of common people and also as a poverty alleviator due to its multi purpose uses. As a result of this, bamboo resources are of great importance in the rural socio-economy of several tropical countries. As pulp and paper being the major commercial bamboo consuming sector, it is very necessary to have an updated information on the state of art related to its pulping processes and technologies for the optimal utilization of this valuable resource.
