An analysis of Australian sugarcane regions for bagasse paper manufacture
Rainey, Thomas J., Covey, Geoff, & Shore, Dennis (2006) An analysis of Australian sugarcane regions for bagasse paper manufacture. International Sugar Journal, 108(1295), pp. 640-644.
Despite the large quantity of sugarcane grown in Australia, no bagasse is pulped in the country. This is largely because of the established pulp industry based on the abundant native hardwood resources. However, increasing demand for fibre and the limited availability of additional forest areas makes bagasse pulping attractive. Issues relating to infrastructure and economics are discussed, and scenarios of acceptable risk identified. It is shown that there should be scope for the production of a bleached bagasse pulp in Australia.
