Abstract: Nowadays huge amount of thermal insulation materials have to be produced. Materials with
high performance have high price, and the most popular thermal insulations have large
environmental footprint and these are not able to biodegradation and their production needs
high energy investment [1, 2]. One alternative the use of natural based biodegradable materials.
Straw bales, and rediscovered straw bale houses are widely documented in the literature (e.g.
[3]). Previous researches dealt with raw and bonded straw, in case of the last one the effects of
the binder was neglected, although it plays key role in mechanical, durability and thermal
properties. The optimal balance of these functions must be found because this balance provides
good usability [4]. To minimize the negative effect of binder to thermal conductivity is one of
the most important topics in development.
