Sugarcane (Bagasse)

Share with

Bagasse is bi-product of sugar cane fibre which is left after the juice is extracted. It is not only an agricultural waste; it is a 100% compostable and recycled material. By utilising sugarcane pulp as a raw material, we can preserve the forests.

In general, we need 5 tonnes of wood to produce 1 tonne of pulp. With sugarcane Bagasse, we only required 1.5 tonnes of sugarcane pulp to produce the same amount of pulp.

Sugarcane Bagasse is used in two form, moulded fibre products and paper.

Moulded fibre products

Moulded bagasse fibre products make up the basis of our range of takeaway containers, bowls, plates and trays. They have a natural look and feel like they are made paper.

Due to nature of the pulp, our products are strong and hold their shape quite well. It is sturdy and functional, with high resistance to heat, water oil and freezer.

Bagasse products can hold hot food, cold food, liquids, microwaveable and oven safe for up to 200.C for 20 minutes.

Since bagasse products are natural fibre products and it will biodegrade within 120 days in a commercial composting facility.

When bagasse products degrade, they provide natural ingredients back to the environment because they are made from natural, organic and renewable materials. Bagasse products are perfect alternatives to petroleum-based Styrofoam and plastic products which take thousands of years to degrade.

Paper and Board

Sugarcane bagasse is mixed with wood pulp to create bagasse paper and board.

Our serviettes made from bagasse paper which is a mix of 60% bagasse pulp.
