Why sugarcane bagasse product become so popular？
With the development of the world economy, the importance of effectively utilizing energy, reducing environmental pollution, reducing the frequency of safety production accidents, preventing environmental emergencies, and ensuring life safety has become increasingly prominent.
In recent years, with the release of the “plastic ban” and the promotion of environmental protection, people’s awareness of environmental protection has been gradually strengthened, and the development prospects of bagasse lunch boxes will become better and better. Today let’s talk about why sugarcane bagasse product become so popular in the world.
What is sugarcane bagasse?
Bagasse is a by-product of sugar mills and a typical raw material for paper fibers. Sugarcane is a stem-like plant fibrous material that grows in one year. The average fiber length is 1.47-3.04mm, and the bagasse fiber length is 1.0-2.34mm, which is similar to the broad-leaved fiber. Bagasse is a good raw material for paper making.
Bagasse is a grass fiber. It is easy to cook and blanch. It consumes less chemicals and contains less silicon than wood, but less than other grass fiber raw materials. Therefore, bagasse pulping and alkali recovery technology and equipment are more mature and simpler than other straw fiber raw materials. So bagasse is a cheaper raw material for pulping.
Businesses need to utilize renewable resources quickly. Bagasse uses lower energy-related emissions, which helps reduce global warming. It requires less energy to make because it’s just the fiber left over from sugar processing.
What’s more, it’s durable and immune to extreme temperatures, which makes it a useful material in consumer spaces.
Research suggests that the molded pulp packaging market could exceed $4.3 billion by 2026.
Now is the time to look into the truly sustainable resource for the manufacture of moulded pulp products, sugar cane waste. We have access to more sustainable alternatives because sugarcane is a fast-growing staple food product.
Using agricultural waste is a better option. This waste by-product is already being produced, rather than being specially grown like wood, which takes many years to grow. Compared to paper, bagasse also requires much less input to produce the same amount of pulp.
This is an overlooked opportunity when looking for truly sustainable packaging. There are about 80 cane sugar producing countries and there is great potential for better use of the fibrous residue known as bagasse.
Significant advantages of bagasse include:
Microwave and oven safe
Can handle hot liquids up to 120 degrees Celsius
Oven safe up to 220 degrees Celsius.
Environmentally friendly lunch boxes made of biodegradable materials, fully biodegradable materials, biodegradable granules, starch biodegradable materials and other materials can be completely and rapidly degraded in the soil and natural environment according to design requirements, non-toxic, pollution-free, and odor-free. It will not destroy the soil structure, and truly achieve “from nature, but also in nature”, which is a better substitute for plastic and paper packaging.
