The paper presents study of the plant oils effect on the properties of starch/polyester blends. In the first stage of the study thermoplastic starch (TPS) with different amount of oils were prepared. I the second stage TPS materials were blended by extrusion process with commercially available biodegradable polyesters - poly(butylene succinate).
