Application Note: Sample preparation of vegetable-based raw materials with laboratory mills
24 March 2023

There are three different methods of producing energy from biomass: direct combustion, extraction, and fermentation. Biomass offers a great advantage that energy is stored in renewable raw materials, available when needed. Due to the recent increasing use of biomass as a source of energy, there is an increasing importance for reliable grinding of vegetable materials as part of the sample preparation process to ensure meaningful analysis results. In this application note, learn more about selecting a suitable laboratory mill, taking into account further processing, sample's properties, and relevant standards.
