Abstract
Starch-based foamed blocks reinforced with natural fillers and with a high potential for being applied as bioderived and biodegradable shaped protective packaging were produced in this work. The use of natural fillers as reinforcement in biopolymers represents a successful strategy widely employed mainly due to their chemical compatibility. Nevertheless, their effect in the mechanical properties of foamed biopolymers such as starch is still uncertain because they not only affect the properties o...
