Introduction to Sugarcane Containers Market

Increasing awareness among people regarding the growing pollution and detrimental state of the earth, eco-friendly alternatives for plastic are being developed. One such eco-friendly solution is sugarcane containers. After the extraction of sweet sugarcane juice, its leftovers are collected and turned into pulp. With the addition of water to the pulp, it is converted into a paste, which can be pressed and converted into the desired form for creating plates, bowls, and other containers. This is the process by which sugarcane containers are manufactured. The sugarcane plants help in reducing CO2 emission, but the plastics made out of fossil fuels increase the CO2 emission. The sugarcane containers have a high amount of cellulose and fiber, which makes the containers very stable and suitable for higher temperatures up to 200 °C. The added benefit of sugarcane containers is that they are plant-based product making it 100% compostable. The sugarcane containers are perfect for takeaway and fast food outlets for serving hot food. The sugarcane containers are capable of absorbing sweat which enables the food to look good and taste much yummier, unlike when they are served in polystyrene alternative. The sugarcane containers are suitable for microwave, and they can be kept in the freezer as well. A critical factor that distinguishes sugarcane containers from others is that they made out of plants and can be domestically composted. Being locally composted is anticipated to propel their market in the coming future.
