Find New Way of Sugarcane Bagasse Uses – Charcoal Production

Sugarcane bagasse, a byproduct of sugarcane processing, is abundantly available worldwide. Annually, global sugarcane production exceeds 1.6 billion tons, generating approximately 279 million tons of sugarcane bagasse. Due to its rich resource availability, people have been exploring various sugarcane waste uses, such as using it as a fuel or cellulose source for manufacturing animal feed. In recent years, the potential of sugarcane bagasse for producing eco-friendly, high calorific value bio-coal has been discovered and developed. More and more investors have begun to pay attention to sugarcane bagasse in charcoal projects.

Sugarcane Bagasse New Use - Charcoal Production

Sugarcane Waste Suitable for Charcoal Production

From the harvest to the final processing, the resulting sugarcane waste which is suitable for charcoal production mainly includes:

  • Sugarcane leaves: Sugarcane leaves are a waste product usually produced during harvest.
  • Sugarcane tops: They represent 15 to 25% of the aerial part of the plant. They generally consist of green leaves, bundle sheaths, and variable amounts of immature cane.
  • Sugarcane bagasse (straw): Bagasse is the fibrous material that remains after the extraction of sugar juice and constitutes about 30–40 wt % of the sugarcane. Around 280 kg of bagasse is generated from every ton of sugarcane.

How about The Feasibility of Making Sugarcane Waste into Charcoal?

The feasibility of converting sugarcane bagasse into bio charcoal is promising, supported by raw material characteristics and market trends.

Raw Material Analysis: Sugarcane Waste’s Natural Characteristics

  • Abundance: Bagasse is a readily available waste product from sugarcane processing, ensuring a consistent and ample supply for charcoal production.
  • Renewability: Bagasse is a renewable resource since sugarcane is a fast-growing crop that is harvested annually. This makes sugarcane charcoal a sustainable alternative fuel.
  • High energy content: Bagasse’s high cellulose (45%), hemicellulose (32%), lignin (17%) content, and low ash content contribute to its high energy content, making it suitable for conversion into high-quality charcoal.

Market Analysis: Growing Interest in Biochar

  • Rising popularity for bio-energy: Bioenergy is renewable energy made from biological materials. It has little environmental pollution during combustion. With the growing emphasis on environmental protection and sustainable development, bioenergy is becoming an increasingly popular alternative energy source. This drives the demand for bio charcoal such as sugarcane charcoal and wood charcoal.
  • Cross-industry applications of biochar: Various industries are exploring the applications of biochar within their domains. For instance, in agriculture, biochar is used to enhance soil quality, while in livestock farming, it serves as a feed supplement. Industries, agriculture, livestock farming, etc. are all showing interest in the eco-friendly and sustainable properties of biochar.

How to Make Charcoal from Sugarcane Bagasse?

After acquiring the sugarcane charcoal making machine, you’re ready to commence the charcoal production process from the sugarcane bagasse. The sugarcane bagasse charcoal machine primarily operates on the principle of high-temperature pyrolysis. Here’s how it transforms sugarcane waste into charcoal:

  1. Dry and crush the sugarcane waste until meeting the feeding requirements (5-20mm size, ≤15% moisture ).
  2. Input the pretreated sugarcane waste into the reactor by workers’ handwork or an automatic feeding system.
  3. Ignite the combustor for preheating.
  4. At 380 ℃-450℃, sugarcane waste decomposes and produces charcoal powder. Biochar yield observed is 30 when material moisture is 10%.
  5. Add water and additives to mix with the charcoal powder. Under specific extrusion pressure, charcoal powder is compacted into briquettes.

How to Make Profit from Sugarcane Charcoal Production Project?

The produced sugarcane bagasse charcoal briquettes can bring good economic benefits because of their wide application across different industries. Investors can sell them to the relevant industries for profit. Common applications of sugarcane bagasse charcoal include:

  • as industrial fuel;
  • BBQ charcoal;
  • shisha charcoal;
  • soil improvement & restoration;
  • carbon sequestration;
  • animal feed additive;
  • reducing agent in metal smelting;
  • wastewater management;
  • etc.

3 Considerations to Set Up Feasible Bagasse Charcoal Production Project

When setting up a sugarcane charcoal production project, several key considerations should be taken into account to ensure its success:

  • Site Selection: Given that bagasse is heavy and voluminous, proximity to sugarcane planting fields or processing plants is recommended. Locating the production site near these areas minimizes transportation costs.
  • Supply of Raw Materials: Sugarcane cultivation is widespread in tropical and subtropical regions worldwide, with countries like Brazil, India, China, and Thailand being major producers. These regions are a stable source of bagasse supply.
  • Equipment Investment: According to the production scale and technical requirements, purchase the corresponding sugarcane bagasse biomass pyrolysis plant. Consider factors such as equipment stability, energy consumption, and automation level during equipment selection. A reliable and efficient machine can improve production efficiency and reduce operational costs over time.
