	  abstract     = {In the present study, the kinetics of thermal
degradation of a phenolic and lignin reinforced phenolic foams, and
the lignin used as reinforcement were studied and the activation
energies of their degradation processes were obtained by a DAEM
model. The average values for five heating rates of the mean
activation energies obtained were: 99.1, 128.2, and 144.0 kJ.mol-1 for
the phenolic foam; 109.5, 113.3, and 153.0 kJ.mol-1 for the lignin
reinforcement; and 82.1, 106.9, and 124.4 kJ.mol-1 for the lignin
reinforced phenolic foam. The standard deviation ranges calculated
for each sample were 1.27-8.85, 2.22-12.82, and 3.17-8.11 kJ.mol-1
for the phenolic foam, lignin and the reinforced foam, respectively.
The DAEM model showed low mean square errors (},
