The present paper presents further results of an on-going research previously exposed in the first
COST FP1404 meeting in April 2015. The research focuses on the analysis of the smouldering
combustion of an innovative thermal insulation rigid board based on vegetal pith and a natural gum
(corn pith and sodium alginate) which is completely compostable
