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.
