Optimum moisture content (MC) for three different compostable materials was estimated through the relationship 'MC vs. FAS', where FAS is the free air space, which is calculated from the values of both particle and bulk density (method 1). As the determination of particle and bulk density was complicated and tedious, two simplifications of the method 1 were tested to obtain an easier approach to establish the optimum MC. The first one (method 2) assumed that bulk density was a constant value… CONTINUE READING
