PaperCrete
The New concrete?
Have you ever heard of Papercrete?  Papercrete is a building supply made of waste newsprint mixed with Portland cement powder.
The result is a solid block that is flame proof, mold and moisture resistant and has an R value of R3 per inch.  Many houses use this as a building material and using recycled material is even better.
Papercrete is not for everything and it is still under testing as to its load bearing properties.
