Composite materials offer good mechanical performance with lower weight than classical materials, what has encouraged their use in many industry applications. Moreover, the rising awareness about environmental problems has prompted the progress towards more sustainable materials, thus encouraging the research in natural fibre reinforcements and biopolymeric matrices. This PhD thesis focuses on the development of green composites made of polyhydroxyalkanoate (PHA) matrix with a reinforcement of flax nonwoven fabrics, while considering materials and processes with low environmental impact. However, in order to achieve lighter materials with even further improved s...
