White bagasse paper – BioTAK® S100

Bagasse White
Bagasse (sugarcane fiber) is an agribusiness residue which can be used in paper manufacturing. Our sugarcane fiber paper is biodegradable, compostable, and recyclable.

Look and feel
Sugarcane fiber paper is available in white (bleached) and with a ‘natural look’ (unbleached). On the paper with natural look the sugarcane fibers are still visible, making it an excellent choice for natural products. A more conventional paper, still environmentally friendly, the white sugarcane fiber paper is the right option.

Advantages of sugarcane fiber paper
• Sugarcane fiber is an agribusiness residue that does not compete against food production or soil use.
• Sugarcane fiber paper stands out because it allows optimising the use of energy, water and chemicals in the paper manufacturing process.
• This residue is available year round.
• Only one plant or piece of agricultural land is needed for two products: food and the raw material for paper.

Bagasse white  is available in reel lengths of 1.000 and 2.000m, standard width of 250mm, 333mm and 500mm on 76mm (3”) core.
