Abstract

The building physics aspects for thermal insulation in building construction are presented in brief. Different demands are placed on the thermal insulation material. In addition to the thermal insulation capacity, the price and the regional availability are important. From this perspective the use of fiber plants occurring in the semi-desert (semi-arid) zones of Mexico and an industrial waste material is being investigated.
