Lignocellulosic Data for Sample:
|Name:||Miscanthus stem||Order #:||311|
|Type:||Grass||Analysed:||Aug 4 2016|
|Summary of Analytical Procedure|
This sample was analysed for its ash content and its elemental composition (carbon, hydrogen, nitrogen, sulphur, oxygen) with the oxygen content determined by difference.
The Higher Heating Value (HHV, often referred to as the Gross Calorific Value) was determined directly using an oxygen bomb calorimeter. The Lower Heating Value (LHV, often referred to as the Net Calorific Value) was calculated based on the HHV and the elemental composition of the sample.
A proximate analysis was also undertaken in order to determine the Volatile Matter content and Fixed Carbon content.
The sample was also analysed for its moisture content.
