Insulation from Filamentous Algae

Postby velacreations » Thu Jan 20, 2011 10:13 am

In the rivers, ponds, and creeks in our area, the water is covered in Filamentous Algae during the winter and Spring. When the creeks or ponds dry out, the dried FA is fluffy and resembles fiberglass insulation.

Does anyone know if this would be a decent insulation material? It seems really good, and could be grown as a "green" replacement for fiberglass insulation.
