Cement is a material, in construction that we often rely on. Have you ever considered the environmental impact it has especially during this time of ecological transition in the United States? Well a solution has been discovered that will make future of Construction without Cement; using household items that you probably use without realizing their potential.

Combining router and recycled newspaper is a great way to develop a strong composite insulation material as these two substances own mutually applicable properties.

By combining rice husk particles with shredded newsprint and adhesive scientists have developed a material with excellent thermal insulation capabilities.

This unique compound takes advantage of the density and high silica content of rice husks along with the structure and mechano chemical effects present in recycled paper.

Than treating these materials as agricultural waste or post consumer products they can be repurposed for sustainable upgrades, to building insulation. One key benefit of this material is its nature falling within the range of 100 500 kg/m3, a factor that varies based on the ratio of rice husk, to newspapers used.

With a weight to 25% to 45% of traditional insulation this innovative material offers three to six times greater efficiency in future of Construction without Cement. Its lightness makes it easy to transport, install and mount on walls or ceilings.


Research indicates that despite its properties this alternative exhibits insulating capabilities comparable to commercial insulations. This is achieved by trapping air within a blend of rice husk particles and shredded newspaper fibers.

Moreover the silica rich husk reflects radiation enhancing resistance. By combining waste materials that would otherwise be discarded into landfills or incinerated this lessens the environmental impact associated with insulation materials according to UNEP.

Future endeavors will focus on refining manufacturing processes. Demonstrating performance at a scale. Early studies suggest prospects, for creating an insulation solution derived from abundant agricultural and urban waste sources.

How were they able to transform these two substances into an insulating solution for homes?

The spacecrafts composite material is produced using a method. Initially old newspapers are shredded into fibers to serve as the material, for creating paper.

This process enhances the contact between fibers resulting in bonding. The shredded newspaper fibers are then thoroughly mixed with rice husk particles.

The husk acts as a binding agent in the mixture. Provides support. The blended mixture is then compacted to form boards or loose fill structures used for insulation.

Through heating and pressure the components are fused together to produce a material from rice straw. This versatile range of products can cater to user needs.

The manufacturing process involves steps of shredding, mixing and compressing. Its uncomplicated nature allows for scalability while maintaining strength in both large scale production. Additionally the eco friendly features inherent in this material make it a sustainable option, for construction purposes.
You may have noticed that a substance once thought to be only good, for composting. A practice recently mandated in France as we will discuss later. Has now emerged as an alternative to cement, in building. Its strength, thermal efficiency and sustainability make it stand out among materials in terms of renewability and recyclability.
