The actual environmental policy, together with the strong interest to develop novel materials with better performances, makes the new eco-friendly and biodegradable composites a very attractive research field. Additionally, in this branch of composite materials, substantial attention is focused on the biopolymers made from "nanocomposites" particles that were considered both at academic level and industrial plant. The biopolymer-based nanocomposites provide an opportunity to replace the conventional non-biodegradable polymers, due to their user-friendliness, great biodegradability, and relatively good mechanical properties. This chapter contains a robust overview of a new class of biopolymers nanocomposites.
