Abstract

See full text

An apparatus for measuring moisture content of biomass is disclosed. Systems and methods for measuring the compositional content of biomass is disclosed, which assists in gauging quality of the biomass for any given purpose, and may assist in properly valuing the biomass during transactions. The system includes a coring probe apparatus located at a sampling area, a pneumatic transportation system which transports the core samples by collected by the coring probe to an analysis site, a sample homogenizer that homogenizes the core samples, and a near infrared analyzer calibrated for the biomass which generates a compositional profile for the homogeneous sample. The compositional profile generated by the near infrared analyzer includes values for ash, lignin and carbohydrates in the sample. Calibrating the near infrared analyzer for the biomass includes comparing near infrared scanning results against wet chemistry results.
