Summary Growing demands for the use of biodegradable polymer films in food packaging have led to studies on several sources of non-conventional starches. Corn starch (CS), is the most investigated starch source for food packaging due to its abundance and stability under processing and manufacturing conditions. Other sources of starch such as rice, potatoes and cassava have also been investigated and, more recently, babassu mesocarp starch (BMS), native to Northeastern Brazil, has been explored f...

Polyhydroxybutyrate (PHB) is a biodegradable polymer, and preparation of a blend with another biodegradable polymer, polybutylene adipate terephthalate or Ecoflex® (ECO) is described. Some works in the previous literature show the possibility of preparing blends involving both. The techniques normally used previously described normally an extrusion process or even mixers that require high investment such as HAAKE Rheomix, for example. The main contribution is use of an original and simple techni...
