The demand of bio-based polymers has recently risen due to the limited supply of petroleum-based polymers. The bio-based polymers are better for the environment, renewable, and, in some cases, biodegradable. In this study, poly(lactic) acid, or PLA, will be used to make nanofiber mats by force spinning. To enhance these fibers, bacterial cellulose, grown using banana peels as a feeding stock, will be added. The bacteria source used is called a SCOBY (symbiotic culture of bacteria and yeast). The bacterial cellulose will form a gelatin-like layer on the medium surface. The mechanical, thermal, and morphological properties of the PLA/ cellulose fibers will be assessed.
