Bagasse (Sugarcane)

Bagasse is a fibrous residual by product derived sugarcane. It is like paper in many ways. It has a raw crude finish and is generally brownish in colour. It is waterproof to a certain extent and duration of time because of a coating layered onto it. This layer contains a compound known as PFAS, thus allowing these bagasse material to hold wet and greasy food for a while. Not only will that layer of PFAS coating not biodegrade nor be composted at all, the soil and compost which comes into contact with it will become toxic as well. Plants grown using such sod or fertilizers will also become toxic. Furthermore, this material is not ideal due to functional and customisation issues and has severe product variety limitations.
