We already use plant fibers like wood and bamboo in most buildings, but of particular interest are by-products of food production that currently present disposal problems. The straw, seed husks, cane and other fibers that we used to throw away are increasingly being used as fuel to generate electricity, and as feedstock for a huge range of building materials such as cement, insulation, and sheathing panels.
