Good question and I suggest that you write to Harry Partridge on:
Harry is a well known Sydney Structural Engineer and wrote in combinbation with Dr. Bill Lawson of the University of NSW a book on the Building
Material Ecological Sustainabilty Index or BES Index.
They did some great work on the sustainability index of common building materials and systems. Harry is presenting a paper at the ISBBC 2002.
I hope this is of some help in getting you on the right track. BTW Harry built Sydney's and one of Australia's first straw bale buildings at
Killara. It was a second storey extension in rice straw, not easy to do.
Kind regards John.
