What is sugarcane bagasse?

Sugarcane bagasse is the raw material of sugarcane bagasse food containers. Sugarcane as the main source of sugar, sugarcane not only has a short growth cycle but is also a tall solid herb. It is the best raw material for plant fiber that grows 100% non-wood every year. Sugarcane is widely grown and consumed globally. Sugar cane is rich in fiber.

Sugarcane is the most representative C4 plant. Compared with C3 plants, C4 plants have many advantages such as strong growth ability, high carbon dioxide utilization rate, and less water demand.


Sugarcane is the main raw material for sugar production in China. In the world's total sugar production, sucrose accounts for about 65%, and China accounts for more than 80%. Sugar is one of the essential food products for mankind, and it is also an important raw material for the food industry such as candy and beverage. At the same time, sugarcane is also an important raw material for the light industry, chemical industry, and energy. Chinese people like sugarcane. Sugarcane can not only make sugar but can also make a kind of sugar that is unique to China. Sugarcane brown sugar is a kind of brown sugar with multiple functions for Chinese people. The Chinese not only like sugarcane but also use sugarcane as a kind of fruit. In the annual sugarcane season, sugarcane in fruit shops can be seen everywhere. People peel off the sugarcane peel, squeeze the stems of the sugarcane or eat directly, spit out the sugarcane bagasse after chewing, and enjoy the sweetness of sugarcane.

Sugarcane is not only edible but also able to extract ethanol as an energy substitute. For example, Fujian, Guangxi, and other places in China belong to tropical regions, and sugarcane is widely grown. Even in the Central Plains of China, there are scattered greenhouses. Brazil, India, Thailand, Mexico and other countries are also big countries in sugarcane planting and production. It is mainly used to make sugar, after extracting the sugar from the cane, a large amount of sugarcane bagasse is left.

Sugarcane bagasse fiber is hard and easy to rot. It is an excellent choice for compostable tableware. The use of sugarcane bagasse belongs to waste reuse. It can save a lot of wood and meet the requirements of the circular economy and environmental protection policies.

The production process of sugarcane pulp lunch box

Selection of raw materials

In the screening of bagasse, we check whether the bagasse raw materials meet the requirements. We strictly control every process.

Production of sugarcane pulp

After screening the bagasse, the pulp is made. After the sugarcane pulp production process, the fiber of the bagasse can be separated and the bonding ability of the sugarcane fiber can be improved.

Machine molding

Use professional machines to form more pulp and dewater to get the shape of tableware blanks. This process is crucial to the completion of the tableware. Not only can it be dehydrated and dried, but it can also enhance the bonding ability between sugarcane fibers. Affect the anti-seepage effect of tableware. And it requires no waste water, waste gas, waste residue pollution in the production process.

Cutting process

After the tableware is basically formed, it must be shaped under pressure, trimmed, dried, or air-dried. We will deal with the details of the product according to customer requirements. Cut the edge of the tableware to ensure beauty and practicality. Keep improving.
