Molasses is a viscous by-product of the refining of sugarcane. Molasses varies by amount of sugar and method of extraction, and age of plant. The group utilizes Molasses in making ethyl alcohol for industry.
Bagasse is the fibrous matter that remains after sugarcane stalks are crushed, to extract their juice. We currently use Bagasse as a primary fuel source for sugar mills; when burned in quantity, it produces sufficient heat energy to supply all the needs of a typical sugar mill, with energy to spare.
Since bagasse is a by-product of the cane sugar industry, the quantity of production in each country is in line with the quantity of sugarcane produced.
Sugarcane press mud is the residue of the filtration of sugarcane juice. The clarification process separates the juice into a clear juice that rises to the top and goes to manufacture, and a mud that collects at the bottom. The mud is then filtered to separate the suspended matter, which includes insoluble salts and fine bagasse. This industrial waste is mostly used as soil conditioner, soil fertilizer and for wax production.
