NSI seeks patent for bio-detergent from bagasse.

The government-run National Sugar Institute (NSI) has filed an application for patent rights for its innovative technique to develop bio-detergent from bagasse, the residue left after the extraction of juice from sugar cane. Since no chemical was used in preparing the detergent powder from bagasse, it was safe for skin and environment because it did not discharge any harmful waste. Use of bagasse for detergent has now provided a fresh option of earning.
