This work presented an experimental investigation on the use of a bio-composite as an insulating material in building. During the past few years, many projects have tried to create new composites with a high insulating properties, essentially thermal, which plays an important role in buildings energy efficiency (Chikhi et al. in Energy Build 66:267–273, 2013).
