Biomass EnergyAmerican BioCarbon
From its agricultural waste pelletizing facility in White Castle, LA, American BioCarbon uses best-in-class technology and manufacturing safety disciplines to supply commercial, industrial and municipal customers with sustainable pellets derived from sugar cane bagasse. The environmentally sustainable pellets offset carbon emissions in the global energy markets and are used domestically for environmental remediation. ABC also produces biochar for agribusiness, retail outlets and commercial customers to provide a nutrient-rich soil amendment to grow vegetables and other high-quality crops.
value creation throughInnovative Technology
Bagasse, or sugar cane waste, is a byproduct of raw sugar production. Currently, most bagasse goes to waste, either by being burned in the field (at great cost, liability, and negative environmental impact), or land-disposed. Meanwhile, reducing leafy material attached to incoming cane improves sugar mill efficiency.
In 2019, 46.52 % of total U.S. sugar production came from sugar cane; for 2019/20, Louisiana accounted for approximately 40.45% of total U.S. cane sugar production.
American BioCarbon capitalizes on these opportunities and challenges to the sugar cane industry while generating renewable bagasse products which can be used to replace coal, as a valuable soil amendment, and for other applications like oil & gas remediation.
American BioCarbon's proprietary process increases a sugar mill's capacity and efficiency, while eliminating the environmental liability and cost of sugar cane waste.
Advantages & Sustainability
As clean-energy regulations increase worldwide, utilities will need to incorporate a much larger volume of agricultural biomass in order to simultaneously meet both sustainability requirements and renewable energy targets.
With global demand for renewable fuels to replace coal at an all-time high, American BioCarbon's Louisiana facility is uniquely positioned to meet this demand, with products that:
- Meet or exceed European sustainability criteria
- Provide substantial reductions in greenhouse gas emissions versus fossil fuels
- Offer low carbon lifecycle emissions
- Can be easily exported via the nearby port
