Bagasse is often used as a primary source of fuel in sugar mills. It is used as a biofuel for the production of heat, energy and electricity. It is usually combusted in furnaces to produce steam for power generation. This process of co-generation facilitates the production of two forms of energy – electricity and heat. The electricity and heat obtained from sugarcane bagasse offer renewable energy that promotes sustainable development.
