Moisture Content (by Microwave Equilibrium Method)

1. Select a random sample of your biomass.

2. Weigh the sample (m_wet) and record.

3. Place the sample in a microwave and microwave for 15-60 seconds.

4. Record the new weight of the sample.

5. Repeat steps 3-4 until measured weights stabilize (within the noise of measurements).

6. Average the last three (stabilized) measurements (m_dry).

7. Report the percentage moisture content on a dry basis ([m_wet-m_dry]/m_dry * 100) note that it is reported dry basis.
