Old comments[edit]

"However when a full audit of energy used in production is done, 75% of the energy required to grow and move the sugar cane (including bagasse) is from liquid fuel (petroleum or hydrocarbon based), leading to a 25% net gain from photosynthesis." —Preceding unsigned comment added by 71.56.90.172 (talk) 08:16, 14 March 2008 (UTC)

The first sentence of this article is fine except for the comment about it not currently being used as a renewable resource. I moved the first citation back from the end of this sentence, to just before where it starts about the renewable resource. The citation is correct for the first half of the sentence, but I didn't see anything talking about renewable resources in that first citation. Tainted42 (talk) 20:51, 17 October 2008 (UTC)

Bagasse is used as food for cattle[edit]

Bagasse is also used as a food for cattle.After hydrolization under hight temperatures and water, this product is transformed into a very good ration for cattle, in places such as Brazil.Agre22 (talk) 19:49, 7 March 2009 (UTC)agr

Major edit[edit]

I conducted a major edit providing more detail on bagasse production generally. I will post some references shortly for the comments about pith.

I do not feel that it should be categorised under "Energy" but rather under something like "Manufacturing". Unfortunately I have no idea how to do this and would appreciate if someone could help with this one. —Preceding unsigned comment added by Bagasseman (talkcontribs) 01:09, 8 December 2009 (UTC)

Edit out blatant self promotion[edit]

Quite a bit of self-promotion has entered this entry, which is sad. I have removed a great swathe. Also, there are lots of comments about the work of individual companies. The reality is that there are many companies looking at every possible aspect of bagasse use. So trends should remain in the article and references to individual companies should be kept to a minimum. I would like to see other examples of bagasse cellulose ethanol projects and power plants. If anyone can help with that, it would be good. I agree that Manufacturing is a more suitable category. How to do this? — Preceding unsigned comment added by Bagasseman (talkcontribs) 05:50, 16 December 2011 (UTC)
