Sugarcane (Saccharum officinarum L.) is an indispensable plant, representing most of the cultivated plants throughout the world. Sugarcane is processed to produce crystalline sugar and bioethanol. The treatment process produces sugarcane bagasse waste. Sugarcane bagasse waste can be utilized through some treatment. In this study, Plasma Treatment (PT) in-Water treatment was applied to sugarcane bagasse to investigated the glucose concentrates and by-products. PT in-water energy input parameters were 320, 340, and 400 W with an irradiation time of 1, 2.5 and 5 minutes. Sugarcane bagasse after treatment and by-products were tested using the Nelson Somogyi method to determine glucose percentage and characterized using Fourier Transform Infrared Spectroscopy (FT-IR), Scanning Electron Microscope (SEM) and Image-J software. The results showed that the percentage of glucose in sugarcane bagasse decreased from 0.028% to 0.00023% at 400 W energy input, the irradiation time of 5 minutes. the by-product resulted in cellulose nanoparticles which had an average diameter from 276.14 to 105.78 nm at each energy input variation.

Keyphrases: nano material, Plasma In-Liquid, sugarcane bagasse
