Poly lactic acid (PLA) is a promising biopolymer due to its mechanical and biodegradable properties. Its need to incorporate the filler especially fiber filler from agricultural and forest waste to reduce the cost of PLA. The characterization were done through the interfacial interaction between PLA and fiber filler, the thermal stability, the functional group through hydrogen bondings. SEM image show the fracture surface of the PLA and fibers particles being visible and the rough edges of the voids. Adding fiber filler increased the thermal degradation temperature of the PLA matrix, as a function of the reinforcing content. Hydrolitic degradation occurs, mainly in the outermost polymer layers and not in the inner parts of a matrix.
