The Ashland School of Environmental Education in Oregon has come up with a new way of building with straw. The Strawjet is a apparatus that creates straw cable. This cable has many uses; one of which is a new building material. They have created a product called StrawCore that can be used for structural building members. StrawCore is a 4 x 4 blocks of 4 straw cables covered in a cob-like & papercrete finish. They can be constructed into small or large panels. It’s a pre-made wall system constructed from environmentally benign materials. They are working on prototypes for building construction.
