Poly(vinyl alcohol) (PVA) and sugar cane bagasse (SCB) mixtures have been formulated as aimed at the production of hydro-mulching composites and melt processed biobased composite items. Glycerol and urea have been proposed as suitable plasticizers and eventually, in the case of urea, for the realization also of slow release fertilizing hydro-mulching. The investigation of thermal stability of raw components and relevant mixture is an important parameter to be assessed in view of processing and ultimate applications. PVA/SCB composites appeared suitable for melt processing up to 200 °C. The urea containing PVA/SCB composites while resulted particularly suited for hydro-mulching applications did not appear processable from the melt, due to urea thermal instability.
