Question about "Angelica - Plant from the North" Article

Hi team,

i just read article "Angelica - Plant from the North" and in the 7-th
paragrah you mention that "Single roots can reach a weight of one half to
almost one pound and contain 0.4 to 0.8 percent oil " - does this mean that
from 1 pound root one can exctract minimum 0.4 % oil ? Do you mean 0.4 litre
of oil from 1 pound root ?In your example you say 12,000 pounds of roots -
how many litres of oil can be distilled from this amount ?

Thanks a lot in advance
Kind Regards.

A:

The article was written by Seija Halva. You may have to google her. From what I understand the "0.4 to 0.8” are in percentage (%).

"Single roots can reach a weight of one half to almost one pound and contain 0.4 to 0.8 percent oil."

1 pound, or any given amount, can extract 0.4% to 0.8% oil is my understanding.
