Light Straw Bale Construction
Keywords:Cost efficiency, Eco-friendly, Light straw clay construction, Thermal insulator
Many advancements have occurred in the field of technology and their disadvantages are creating a large impact on our environment. As a solution to various negative impacts on environment, people are preferring eco-friendly environment to live. Light straw clay construction can be an alternative for the countries where agriculture is considered as a source of income. Light straw clay includes a composition of straw and clay. Both these components are easily available and this is one of the advantages of light straw clay construction. The purpose of this paper is to present an eco-friendly construction technique which satisfies cost efficiency and local availability of materials of construction. Straw serves as a good thermal insulator. Straw is actually the waste of agriculture. These are either burned in bulk or buried in the soil which create environmental problems. In this study the potential of light straw clay is evaluated and investigation is carried on building construction, thermal insulation and transfer of heat.
