Bagasse Packaging

The BioCane Journey Bagasse used to produce BioPak products is sourced from Thailand. In 2004, 65 million tons of sugarcane was harvested in Thailand, producing approximately 18 million tons of wet-bagasse as a by-product BioCane BioCane is made from bagasse. It is the fibrous matter that remains after sugarcane stalks are crushed to extract their juice. is mostly utilized for steam and power production for domestic sugar mills. Pith will be consumed in the boilers of sugar 1) 2) mill as the fuel 2. depithed bagasse will be conveyed to the storage yard and keep in wet storage system. A major cause of global warming is caused by the emission of greenhouse gases. A major source of greenhouse gases is the combustion of fossil fuels, that are used for transport, industrial processing and electricity generation. At the same time, there is growing awareness that the reserves of fossil \fuels are finite and that we have to search for 100 1. For each 10 tonnes of sugarcane crushed, a sugar factory produces nearly 3 tonnes of wet bagasse. juice Raw material sourced in alternatives to meet the demand for energy but also as a feedstock for plastics. We estimate fossil fuel use for the production of plastics at 400-500 million tonnes of oil equivalents per year. The development of 'sustainable' alternatives for the numerous plastic products is becoming more and more important. -Thailand-and converted - to finished product in China 36.7° Sugarcane growing countries o the world are between the latituao 36.7° north and 31.0° south of the equator extending from tropical to subtropical zones. Raw Bagasse shipped from Thailand to China to Australia 0° shipped to Australia & NZ in 40" containers. Sugarcane is the world's largest crop. In 2010, FAO estimates it was cultivated on about 23.8 million hectares, in more than 90 countries, with a worldwide END OF LIFE DISPOSAL OPTIONS Disposal option = 1. compost. 2. Landfill harvest of 1.69 billion tonnes. Brazil was the largest producer of sugar cane in the world. |five major producers 31.0° Distributed across Australia and NZ by courier. HOW BAGASSE PRODUCTS COMPARE 8. reduce temperature in "Cold Blow" 9. "Blow Tank." stored Less water and energy is required to produce Bagasse than Styrofoam, paper, and recycled paper. Bagasse Handling 3. three various 4. "Cyclone" to 12. Pulp Machne separate soil and sand (7 stageswashing 13. Roller press machine for forming paper NaOH 2. Bagasse is reclaimed from storage yard to bagasse washing system Less CO2 is emitted by creating Bagasse over Styrofoam and paper. Recycled paper, however, emits even less than Bagasse. 3 13 5. "Dewatering Rotary Screen". to reduce water content Trees can take up to 30 years to mature, while sugarcane only takes one year making it a sustainable resource. (2 11 10 3) 11. Unbleached pulp is sent to high pressure screen and centricleaner to remove sand and plastic and to reduce water content Considered a disposable- sustainable product 6. "Magnetic Tramp Iron Separator " and "Belt Scale" for checking and controlling of bagasse volume %23 10. “Brown Stock Washer" for cleaning BIOCANE PRODUCTS ARE COMPOSTABLE Carbon Dioxide emitted and sequestered, attributed to Bagasse during sugarcane growth and processing. kg CO22 eq/1000 trays Since BioCane products are made from naturally grown sugar-cane, they are easily converted by nature back into simple, stable compounds that are absorbed back into the ecosystem. This process of "biodegrading" takes only a few months with normal composting and introduces no toxins into the environment. 50 CO2 Sequestered in Total per Hectare per Year . 58,172 kg C02 40 CO2 Sequestered in Bagasse per Hectare per Year 18,114 kg CO2 30 20 According to Planet Green, recycling and composting efforts prevent 64 million tons of material from going to landfill or incineration in each year. CO2 Emissions in Total per Hectare Processed per Year... 1191 kg CO2 10 CO2 Emissions attributed to Bagasse per Hectare Processed per Year.. 357 kg CO2 So if you are looking for a socially responsible line of disposable plates, bowls, or containers - take a look at BioCane No paper, no Styrofoam, just pure natural renewable sugar cane.

This shows where BioCane products are produced and what it takes to get it into your hands. Bagasse is a better alternative for single use disposable food service packaging
