Innovative ProductsCreated from Agricultural Waste
Our patented systems use the byproduct material from sugar production to create three industry-leading products:
What is Bagasse?From a liability to a benefit
When sugar cane 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 greenhouse gas emissions, 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 35 million tons of sugar cane each year, producing 10 million tons of bagasse. There is also over 1 million acres of land dedicated to sugar cane production. Most of this material is unused - creating environmental and financial liability.
American BioCarbon solves these problems by manufacturing three beneficial products from sugar cane waste: biochar, absorbent pellets, and fuel pellets. Additionally, American BioCarbon sells carbon removal credits called CORCs (CO2 Removal Certificates) through the Puro.earth registry. American Biocarbon’s net negative biochar neutralizes carbon emissions for climate conscious companies who purchase the credits.
