I am looking for product information on a structural block called FASS. #green

I am a firefighter and recently responded to a fire where there was a green material, I believe he called FASS. It looks like a cinder block but it is wood chips mixed with concrete and then compressed. Half of the void space is foam insulation about 3 inches thick. The construction was 2 layers of these blocks thick separated by 4 inches of concrete and the whole thing was re-enforced with re-bar. This is the first time we have come across this material and the fire started within the wall and probably smoldered for a couple weeks before it was even noticed. We are putting together a presentation and any information about this material would be great thanks.
