Bagasse Stock Pile (Picture: DalinYebo)

Furfural has been made from bagasse since the 1950’s.

 The Following was first published by www.GreenEnergyPark.co.za (April 2012)

The world’s largest furfural factories use bagasse as feedstock (see above site for the presentation). We view furfural as an alternate revenue stream either in lieu of electricity production or as an appendix to electricity co-generation. Furfural can be a very viable diversification alternative and integrates into new or existing sugar mills, whether they make ethanol, sugar or both.


A business plan and background information is available from the GreenEnergyPark™ website.
