Abstract
Natural thermal insulation materials developed from renewable crop by-products and natural binders are analysed in terms of their thermal degradation and fire behaviour. A Pyrolysis Combustion Flow Calorimetre (PCFC) is used to characterise some kinds of crop by-products, including rice husk, corn pith and barley straw. This technique is complemented with a TG analysis. Six thermal insulation materials, formulated with such crop by-products and two kind of natural binders, corn starch and sodium...
