What is Bagasse?
Bagasse (pron.: /bəˈɡs/ bə-gas) is the fibrous matter that remains after sugarcane or sorghum stalks are crushed to extract their juice. It is currently used as a biofuel and in the manufacture of pulp and paper products and building materials.
The benefits of 60-70% Tree-Free (Bagasse) Products
- The production of Bagasse requires no additional
land conversion from wild lands to agricultural land because Bagasse is a waste
- Using a waste product reduces pressure on
farmers to convert wild lands to agricultural lands because it increases the
value of their current crop production
- 60-70% Tree-Free material is more rapidly renewable
than tree based paper because sugar cane grows to maturity within 12 months
compared to at least 20 years for most trees
- 60-70% Tree-Free paper products use less energy and chemicals
to produce than tree based paper because Bagasse contains less lignin or the
glues in all plant matter
- Tree-Free products are able to be recycled with
normal paper products.
How are 60-70% Tree-Free paper products manufactured?
Sugar cane fiber bagasse tableware and paper products are made by pressing
the pulp with intense pressure and high temperatures to a mold form. It is
sterilized and sanitized and conforms to U.S. Food & Drug Administration
(U.S. FDA) guidelines.
