Abstract: Since the second half of the twentieth century, the noise level within the outside worldwide environment began to grow rapidly. At the present time and at many places, the highest permitted values stipulated by the national hygienic prescriptions and other legislative requirements are being significantly exceeded in plenty of cases. Transportation corridors (roads as well as railways) belong to the main noise origins within this external environment.
During the recent years and especially in the settled areas, there were built up so called antinoise barriers around these noise sources which should absorb the respective noise and avoid its spreading into the surrounding space.
The paper is devoted to development and manufacture possibilities as regards the antinoise screens which involve the usage of easily renewable raw material sources from the agriculture, forestry and also secondary raw materials proceeding from the building industry.
