The effects of mild torrefaction on the pulverization of Norway spruce sawdust have been studied. To this end, sawdust was dried and torrefied below 230°C for different periods of time to obtain samples with mass losses (ML) of 0.2%, 1.4%, and 2.8%, milled in an oscillatory ball mill, and the particle morphology and cellulose crystallinity of the powders were studied. The pretreatment leading to 0.2% ML had no effect on grindability, but that resulting in 1.4% ML improved grindability and a median particle size below 17.4±0.2 μm was attained. Torrefaction involving 2.8% ML reduced the specific energy consumption more than 21% when the targeted median particle size of the torrefied wood was between 18.7±0.5 and 79±3 μm. The mild torrefaction had a negligible influence on the aspect ratio distribution and cellulose crystallinity in the ball-milled wood.
