Original Paper


The main attention of the article deals with the taking out of silica from natural supply such as sugar cane bagasse. These waste materials in large quantities can produce a critical environmental problem. Hence, there is a need to adopt suitable plan to condense the waste. In the present study, all the waste materials are subjected to humidity removal with heating at 200 °C and sintered at 900 °C for 7 h. The obtained powders were examined and described by FT-IR and XRD analysis. The powder obtained from sugar cane bagasse sources was found to 100% SiO2 in tridymite and crystobalite phases. Crystalline sugarcane bagasse (SCB) was used as an alternative silica source for the synthesis of glass samples. The synthesis was studied as a function of crystalline sugarcane bagasse up to 35 mol% and the products of glass samples were characterized using a variety of analytical techniques, including X-ray diffraction (XRD), Fourier transformation infrared spectroscopy (FT-IR), differential thermal analyzes (DTA) and UV/VIS/NIR spectroscopy.
