Bagasse composting as a volume reduction technology


, : Bagasse composting as a volume reduction technology. Journal American Society of Sugar Cane Technologists 12: 113

At most cane sugar factories, bagasse constitutes the greatest volume of solid residue to be handled; a volume decrease of 60-70% occurs during composting of bagasse with filter cake, lowering the costs of handling and transport. Applied to fields during favourable weather conditions, the resulting compost returns nutrients and organic matter to the soil, and lowers the populations of weed seeds and pathogens.
