Because many of the products and solutions we offer are innovative, we’ve taken it upon ourselves to guide you through the ins and outs of sugarcane bagasse. Let’s take a closer look at sugarcane bagasse.
What Is Bagasse?
Bagasse is a moniker for the left-over sugar cane fiber that remains after cane has been turned into sugar. With sugarcane farmers producing almost 80% of the world’s sugar, there are massive amounts of available Bagasse produced.
Considered a waste product, Bagasse requires no extra resources to produce it. In addition, sugarcane is remarkably abundant and considered a renewable resource as it can regrow in as little as 10 months. This ability to quickly regrow makes sugarcane and Bagasse a greener alternative to paper and wood.
How Is Bagasse Used in Packaging?
As we mentioned previously, Bagasse is the fiber that remains when sugarcane juice has been extracted. This fiber is then molded into versatile meat trays, produce trays, and other food packaging products through a high-pressure, high-heat process.
Turning Bagasse into food packaging products actually uses less energy compared to the pulping of wood for paper products. The result is extremely durable and versatile food packaging products. At Servous, our most popular Bagasse products are:
- Bagasse Chicken Roaster containers
- Bagasse Bowls
- Bagasse Plates
- Bagasse Meat Trays
- Bagasse Produce Trays
- Bagasse Take-out food containers
- Bagasse Paper Shopping Bags
Is Bagasse Environmentally Friendly?
Bagasse products are among the most eco-friendly solutions on the market. Our products made from Bagasse are:
- 100% Biodegradable
- 100% Compostable within 90 days.
- 100% Recyclable
- Toxin and Chemical Free
- 100% Natural and Carbon Neutral
Because it’s a waste by-product of sugarcane manufacturing, it doesn’t need additional lands to grow and doesn’t increase deforestation.
At the same time, producing Bagasse is much more efficient than producing products from wood. Specifically, it only requires 1.5 tons of sugarcane pulp to produce 1 ton of Bagasse paper, it takes a substantial 5 tons of wood to produce 1 ton of paper.
