Abstract Waste wood, waste paper, and waste plastics are major components of MSW and offer great opportunities as recycled ingredients in wood-fiber plastic composites. USEPA and the USDA Forest Products Laboratory (FPL) are collaborating on a research project to investigate the processing, properties, and commercial potential of composites containing these recycled ingredients. Two processing technologies are being employed - melt blending and nonwoven web. Some past research studies are breifly reviewed to illustrate the behavior of wood fiber-polyolefin composites and results of initial testing under the EPA/FPL project are also presented.
