bagasse, integrated management, pollution, products, waste


The Junín Canton is one of the largest producers of sugar cane in the province of Manabí, according to some experts, 87% of the population of that territory has linked to obtaining different products derived from this plant. The following research work makes some reflections related to the waste caused by the harvests and the environmental impact that has caused by not using them properly. The methodology used for the analysis has related to the field visits carried out in a research project, obtaining as a result that a large amount of bagasse has poured into the ground, or burned causing pollution affecting the ecosystem of the territory studied, waste, integrated management, waste, bagasse pollution.
