Abstract: The environmental quality of a building generally aims to take into account both the stakes of
sustainable development, social and economic. For these reason, several researchers are
recently interested to introduce the biobased materials for the new and renovated buildings to
reduce simultaneously energy consumption, gases emission and agricultural production.
Studies carried out on new biobased building materials, which contains date palm fibers (DPF),
have showed their both thermal insulation efficiency and mechanical reliability. In order to
characterize the behavior and the effectiveness of this material both in terms of energy saving
and indoor environmental quality. We have focused our investigation on the study of the hydric
behavior of DPF concrete. The buffer moisture was estimated on the outdoor environment at
isothermal condition according to the NORDTEST method then at non-isothermal condition. The
results showed that the DPFC could be classified as an excellent moisture and heat regulator
thanks to its absorption capacity and low thermal conductivity.
