Over the past decades, many efforts have been carried out for the development of novel green nanocomposites based on biopolymers and natural organic nanofillers. Indeed, these nanocomposites could replace some oil-derived polymers and thus helping to overcome environmental problems. In this regard, poly (lactic acid) (PLA) as matrix and polysaccharide nanocrystals (cellulose, chitin, and starch) as bio-based nanoreinforcements are the most promising components to obtain high-performance green nanocomposites. This chapter covers the basic features of PLA and polysaccharide nanocrystals derived from biomass-based raw materials such as cellulose, chitin, and starch. In particular, this chapter reviews the status of the research on the nanocomposites based on PLA and this class of nanofillers
