Abstract Sugarcane, a major crop grown in the tropical and subtropical regions of the world, produced the greatest biomass of any other crop at nearly 1.85 billion metric tonne in 2013. Over its long history the sugarcane industry has developed advanced technologies in all aspects of growing and processing. Sugarcane juice can be concentrated to produce products such as sucrose, sweeteners, and alcohol. The fibrous plant residue (bagasse) can also produce heat and generate electricity. Sugarcane has a higher net energy ratio (output/input) than most other crops. Some industries, like Brazil, have developed efficient fermentation technologies to convert the sugars in molasses into bioethanol a higher value, easily distributable, liquid transportation fuel.
