Sugarcane residues are known as bagasse or bagbumme. Brazil is famous cane sugar producing country. Their main efforts are concentrated in sugarcane processing, including manufacture sugar and alcohol. Because of the growing economic globalization trend, the international sugar market competition more intense, Brazil have begun to pay attention to the comprehensive utilization of sugarcane bagasse.

★ Bagasse - As Fuel
One ton of sugarcane can produce about 300kg bagasse. The production of sugarcane bagasse per year in Brazil is 75~90 million tons. About 90% or more is used as fuel to supply power for factory. With wood pellets making machine, bagasse can be extruded into pellets fuel.
★ Bagasse – As Fodder
Years of experiments show that adding 38%~40% puffed bagasse in forage does good to animals’ healthy. The experimental data is as below:
|Content of Bagasse||52%||38%||25%|
|Daily Weight Gain of Cattle||0.866||1.012||0.985|
The utilization of bagasse is very worthy to study and research. GEMCO Energy Machinery Co., Ltd is not only specialized in bagasse pelletizing machinery, but also specialized in bagasse feed preparation, processing principles, equipment and process conditions.
Bagasse is mainly composed of cellulose, hemicellulose, lignin and pectin substance.
