Building and construction from straw
Straw bales are a waste product of arable farming. Once the edible part of the grain has been harvested (such as wheat or rice), the stalks often become a disposal problem for farmers. By bailing the straw, new life is given to the material. Straw bricks and panels offer numerous advantages. They are not easily combustible because the straw is packed so tightly that there is little air within the panels for a fire to feed on, they are breathable, and provide excellent insulation in both hot and cold environments.
