Innovative ProductsCreated from Agricultural Waste
Our patented systems use the byproduct material from sugar production to create three industry-leading products:
Our biochar product sequesters carbon in the soil, making farmland more productive and reducing climate damage.
With a five-to-one absorption ratio, our pellets significantly outperform other materials.
Our energy-dense biomass fuel pellets are made to exacting standards, making them an ideal substitute for coal.
What is Bagasse?From a liability to a benefit
When sugarcane is harvested and processed to make sugar, the leafy material attached to the cane goes to waste. Known as bagasse, this byproduct is burned in the field or left in piles to decompose, causing significant problems with air quality and land management.
Reducing the amount of bagasse attached to incoming cane before it reaches the mill also improves sugar mill efficiency. This lowers costs and improves revenue for sugar mills.
The U.S. grows nearly 33 million tons of sugarcane each year, producing 10 million tons of bagasse. Most of this material is unused - creating environmental and financial liability.
American BioCarbon solves these problems by manufacturing three beneficial products from sugarcane waste.
By the Numbers
Soil sequestration is a cost-effective climate solution, with the potential to remove 250+ million metric tons of carbon dioxide per year in the U.S. alone.
The global fuel pellet market is currently 40 million metric tons with a projected compound annual growth rate of of 14.5% to 2027.
Secure, long-term supply of a global renewable feedstock from sugarcane bagasse, with 2 billion tons per year of sugarcane grown around the world.
The U.S market value for industrial absorbent pellets is project to grow at a 4% rate from 2019-2027, with a value of over $5 billion.
