Why use Sugarcane Bagasse as pellet raw material?

Why use Sugarcane Bagasse as pellet raw material

There are a lot of sugar factories in southeast Asia and Brazil, plenty of sugarcane are produced after being extracted. For each 10 tonnes of sugarcane crushed, a sugar factory produces nearly 3 tonnes of wet bagasse. Most of the factories have no idea with how to deal with the material, massive waste materials take space of the plant.

Few factories burn the bagasse fiber as fuel, when burned in quantity, it produces sufficient heat energy to supply all the needs of a typical sugar factory. The rest of the bagasse can be processed to biomass pellets and exported to other countries as fuel, which bring the factory economic benefits.

Bagasse fiber is burned as fuel and, when burned in large quantities, produces enough heat energy to meet all the needs of a typical sugar mill.

The remainder of the bagasse can be processed into biomass pellets, which have a high calorific value of 3,400 to 4,200 kcal and low ash content, making it a renewable resource, making it superior to other types of fuel.

Benefits of bagasse pellets made by sugarcane bagasse pellet machine

Bagasse pellets made by sugarcane bagasse pellet machine are used in many places due to its convenience and comfort. It has the following advantages:

  • High return on investment.
    The raw material cost is low, the equipment investment is small, and the operation is simple. Ordinary people can operate the equipment after simple training, labor costs are very low, and coal prices fluctuate greatly. These factors ensure a better return on investment.
  • Wide application range.
    Bagasse pellets are easy to use and store. It can be used for heating, domestic stoves, hot water boilers, industrial boilers, biomass power plants, etc., instead of firewood, coal, fuel oil, and liquefied petroleum gas. It is also suitable for family units; it has good combustion efficiency and can meet the needs of cooking, heating and bathing, especially the necessities of biomass power plants.
  • Environmental benefits.
    Bagasse pellets are good for the environment. Bagasse pellets are carbon-neutral, which means that their own carbon dioxide emissions are absorbed by themselves during the growth process. They will not release other air-polluting gases into the air.
  • Renewable.
    Bagasse pellets are different from fossil fuels such as coal and natural gas that can be consumed (formed over a long period of time). Bagasse pellets are renewable because sugarcane grows every year, so we can provide an unlimited amount of raw materials.
  • Turn waste into treasure.
    With the increase in energy demand and the decrease in fossil fuels, no one can guarantee the stability of its prices. However, the cost of bagasse pellets can be controlled. In the context of global energy shortages, bagasse pellets are a representative of turning "waste" into wealth. Sugarcane is fully utilized, in addition to increasing farmers' income.bagasse pellets

Working Principle Of Sugarcane Bagasse Pellet Machine

The sugarcane bagasse pellet press machine process: crushed biomass sugarcane bagasse material is fed evenly by the forced feeding device, the centrifugal force generated by the rotation of the ring die, and the action of the feeding scraper. The two pressing areas in the ring die are in the wedge-shaped space formed by the two press rollers and the ring die.

Technical Features Of Sugarcane Bagasse Pellet Machine

Under the strong squeezing action of the ring die and the press roller, the sugarcane bagasse material is gradually compacted, squeezed into the die hole of the ring die and shaped in the die hole.

Because the extrusion of the material between the die and the roller is continuous, the formed sugarcane bagasse material is continuously discharged from the die hole in a columnar shape, and then cut into sugarcane bagasse pellets of the required length by the cutter, and then enters the next process.

How to make sugarcane bagasse pellets? sugarcane bagasse pellet manufacturing process

The following is the sugarcane bagasse waste pellet manufacturing process of bagasse pellet fuel. Using bagasse as the raw material, through the processes of crushing, drying, pelletizing, etc., it is made into a new type of clean fuel that can be directly burned in granular form. Its products can be used as the best substitute for traditional energy such as coal, diesel and natural gas.

In order to generate enough heat energy to meet all the needs of a typical sugar factory, or to make a profit by making pellets. Generally, the production and pelletizing process of bagasse pellet fuel is divided into the following steps:


Grinding section

Grind the bagasse raw materials into powder with a particle size of 3-5mm.


Drying section

The moisture of fresh bagasse is about 48% to 50%. Make sure the moisture of the bagasse is dried to 10-12% to solidify the bagasse.


Pelleting section

Feed the sugarcane bagasse powdery materials into your pellet machine, and they will be compressed into granules through the movement of the pellet machine ring die and the pellet machine pressure roller.


Cooling section

This section can save floor space and processing time. Cooling the pellets can make them easier to package and ship.


Packaging section

After cooling, the bagasse pellets can be packed with a packaging machine to make them easier to store and transport.

  • If you want to create your own sugarcane bagasse biomass pellet plant, the first thing you need to do is decide if you want to process sugar cane and bagasse pellets or only bagasse pellets. This major decision will impact every decision you make henceforth. This will determine the scale of your operation, the capital you will need and the machinery you will need. (The specific sugarcane bagasse process flow has been explained in the above content)
    If you decide you want to process both, you will need to find a sugarcane supplier or purchase your own land to grow sugarcane. Getting started can take years. Processing only sugarcane bagasse pellets is a relatively easier business. You can contact local sugar mills to see if you can purchase their raw bagasse, pre-processing.
  • The second step would be purchasing the required sugarcane bagasse making machinery. You will need processing machines for each step in the sugarcane bagasse pellets manufacturing process. To dry the sugarcane bagasse pellets, you will need a sugarcane bagasse rotary dryer. There are many types of rotary dryers but all of them serve the same purpose.
    This industrial dryer heats the pellets with hot gas to reduce moisture content. The price of rotary dryers varies greatly depending on manufacturer and size. Be prepared to spend at least $10,000.
  • The next sugarcane bagasse processing machine you need to have in your assembly is something that will help you crush the material into smaller pieces. This can be achieved by running the material through a sugarcane bagasse hammer mill crusher. The mechanics of a hammer mill crusher are exactly what they sound like.
    The machine contains a large hammer that pulverizes the material to create small pieces. Hammer mill crushers are a lot less expensive than dryers. Expect to purchase one for approximately 5 to 10 thousand dollars.
  • The next sugarcane bagasse making machine you need to buy is a sugarcane bagasse pellet machine. You cannot spare any expense while purchasing a sugarcane bagasse pellet making machine. Each modern sugarcane bagasse pellet mill comes equipped with a cooling chamber. If your sugarcane bagasse pelletizer machine does not, you will have to buy a separate cooler. In the first step the material is simply loaded into the sugarcane bagasse pelleting machine.
    Most machines come with mechanisms to avoid any spillage or loss of material. The second step involves the formation of sugarcane bagasse pellet shapes with a ring die.The machines are created to withstand vibration to ensure high quality sugarcane bagasse pellet formation. Pellet machines can cost anywhere from $10000 onward depending on the capacity you need to purchase.
  • Once the sugarcane bagasse pellets are formed and cooled, they can be packaged. Most pellet bags vary from 15 to 50 kilograms. You will need to purchase a pellet packing machine depending on the size of your pellet bags. At this point you will send the bags to your customers.
  • Once you have all the machinery in place, a location to manufacture and raw material you will need to ensure you have all the proper business licenses. You will also have to hire a full staff to help you run the sugarcane bagasse biomass pellet production line. The process can take months to years depending on the scale so it is best to get started as soon as possible.

Uses of sugarcane bagasse

1. As a Fuel Source

One ton of sugarcane can produce about 300kg bagasse. The production of sugarcane bagasse per year in Brazil is 75~90 million tons. About 90% or more is used as fuel to supply power for factory. With wood pellets making machine, bagasse can be extruded into pellets fuel.

Some sugar mill owners sell their excess sugarcane bagasse pellets to other factories with boilers or export them to foreign countries. Recently many East Asian countries such as China have started imported large quantities of sugarcane bagasse pellets. An average size power plant usually consumes over 10,000 tonnes of sugarcane bagasse pellets every month.

2. As Animal Feed

Sugarcane bagasse is a by-product of sugar factories offered for animal consumption. Beet bagasse is the cheapest source of roughage that is easily digestible and eagerly eaten by dairy cows and feeder cattle. With feed pellet mill for sugarcane bagasse pelle, through high pressure and high temperature processing, bagasse can be used as animal feed instead of grass and other fodder materials.

Bagasse feed pellets can mainly be used to feed cattle, cows, sheep, fish and so on.Years of experiments show that adding 38%~40% puffed bagasse in forage does good to animals' healthy. The experimental data is as below:

Item BH1 BH2 BH3
Content of Bagasse 52% 38% 25%
Daily Weight Gain of Cattle 0.866 1.012 0.985

3. As Pulp and Paper

In countries such as India, China, Colombia, Iran, Thailand and Argentina, bagasse is used in lieu of wood to create paper and pulp. Bagasse has good qualities for creating paper for mass production and distribution. It is also used to create thicker material boxes and boards as a substitute for plywood. Many companies even use it to build furniture.

What's the Molding process of bagasse pellet processing with bagasse pellet machine?

The structure change and molding of bagasse pellets rely on the additive role of lignin as well as the skeleton role of cellulose and hemicellulose. When lignin begins to soften and classify at 180℃, the pressure exerted by the die and rollers makes it adhere tightly to cellulose and adjacent particles. In this way, separate sugarcane residues are produced into regular pellets with fixed geometrical shapes.

What's the Influence of pressure on bagasse pellet production with bagasse pellet mill?

The molding process of raw materials has close relation with the transformation of those perpendicular to the principal stress direction. For feedstock with the same size, larger pressure makes more significant extension and larger density.

What's the Influence of moisture on bagasse pellet processing with bagasse pellet machine?

Fresh sugarcane bagasses should be dried first before wood pellets manufacturing. Otherwise, excessive moisture will evaporate under the action of heating and extruding, which may lead to the failure of molding or coarse surface of bagasse pellets.

However, raw materials shouldn’t be over-dried either because that will make end products easy to loosen and break.

What's the Influence of size on bagasse pellet processing with bagasse pellet machine?

The size of raw materials for wood pelletizer should be 3-5mm, which is why passages are crushed first before other processes. Too large may lead to clogging while too small will affect the quality and output of end products. Within a given standard, the smaller they are, the larger the molding density is.

What's the Quality requirement of bagasse fuel pellets?

With changeable customized size, produced bagasse pellets have low moisture and high calorific value. Little ash and zero SO2 content makes them free from pollution.

 Moisture  Ash Calorific value  Size SO2
12% 14% 4600kcal/kg 6,8,10,12…mm 0%

What's the Application of bagasse pellets?

  • Industrial boiler: Produced bagasse pellets can be used as fuel to supply energy for power stations, paper mills, fertilizer factories, etc.
  • Home heating: The development of wood pellets manufacturing improves the shortage situation of civil heating resources, enabling people to own a cozy warm environment in winter.
  • Animal feed: With the help of a feed pellet mill, bagasse pellets can be used to feed horses, cattle, dairy, etc.
  • Animal bedding: Produced bagasse pellets can also be used as animal bedding to provide your pets or poultry with a cozy and clean home.

What's the Cost of Bagasse Pellets? Can you make a Profit Analysis of Bagasse Pellets business?

Generally speaking, investing in a bagasse pellet production line costs US$50,000-2,000,000. According to different physical states of raw materials and special processing needs, we will customize different production line processes for customers.

Therefore, if you want to obtain an accurate quotation for a pellet production line, you need to make a decision based on the specific process and equipment configuration.
