Abstract: The rice straw (agricultural waste) was included in the construction of homes in Africa. This application is still useful since it improves some physical properties of materials. However, the great absorption of water of such fibers constitutes an obstacle to the hydration of cement. To remedy this we offer a fiber processing technique. This technique using soil reduces from 15 to 33% absorption rate of rice straw. The processing performance depends on the soil used.
