New wood foam!

http://www.gizmag.com/wood-foam-insulation/31133/

Might not be news to all of you,
but it is the first time i read about it in this form.

Seems kind of promising in terms of base material used.
If it can be "foamed up" using co2 or other natural gases ...

If it uses a low % of material VS air once it is foamed,
it could be very very cheap to supply
( as in using a mix of many wood industry residues )

Even greener if the natural wood "glue" is used in the biding process!!

Then, what about resistance to insects and fungus ??

I still prefer the inertness of "rock wool" though.
