Lignocellulosic fibres obtained by dry grinding of three different solid agro-residues, i.e. wheat straw, brewing spent grains and olive mills, were compared regarding their potential use as fillers in poly(3-hydroxybutyrate-co-valerate) (PHBV) for food packaging applications. Differences found in their composition might have influenced their grinding ability, as observed with the difference of sizes, i.e. 109 μm, 148 μm and 46 μm, respectively. Thereafter, composites structure was characterized regarding their morphology, fibre/matrix interaction, matrix molecular weight and crystallization b ...
