Bagassese

Bagassese is the fibrous residue remaining after sugarcane or sorghum stalks are crushed to extract their juice [1] and is currently used as a renewable resource in the manufacture of pulp and paper products and building materials.

For each 10 tonnes of sugarcane crushed, a sugar factory produces nearly 3 tonnes of wet Bagassese. Since Bagassese is a by-product of the cane sugar industry, the quantity of production in each country is in line with the quantity of sugarcane produced.

The high moisture content of Bagassese, typically 40% to 50% is detrimental to its use as a fuel. Generally, Bagassese is stored prior to further processing. For electricity production, it is stored under moist conditions and the mild exothermic reaction which results from the degradation of residual sugars dries the Bagassese pile slightly. For paper pulp production, it is normally stored wet in order to assist removal of the short pith fibres which impede the paper making process as well as to remove any remaining sugar.

A typical chemical analysis of Bagassese might be (on a washed and dried basis):
1)Cellulose 45%-55%
2) Hemicellulose 20%-25%
3) Lignin 18%-24%
4) Ash 1%-4%
5) Waxes <1%
