Simple houses made from straw

Pierre Eloy believes straw is the ideal alternative to wood in China, a country that lacks timber resources in relation to the size of its population and has therefore been importing vast quantities as its economy has grown rapidly.  The chief executive officer of NOVOFIBRE Panel Board Holding, China, Ltd, a wholly-owned company of Germany’s Mayfair Group, said he hopes his company’s straw-made panel board will become a replacement for wood-based panels, helping China’s interior decoration and construction industries to be more environmentally friendly.
