Abstract(s)This work presents potential applications of use the several types of waste into new value added products. Actually, a high volume of different types of waste, coming of several industries was generated, without any type of recycling and recovery. Moreover, the high population growth verified in the last century has jeopardized the renewable character of certain natural resources, fundamental for the sustainability of the planet. Then, the need of reuse and recycling waste at the end of life cycle is emerging. It was in this context that the Fibrenamics Green platform was born, with the objective to develop innovative products based on waste from several industries, such as automotive, textile, footwear, furniture, construction, among others. In this context, in this work were presented 6 examples of new products from 4 different types of waste, namely wood dust, fibrous waste, mineral dust and polymeric compounds of electrical and electronic equipments, using a polypropypele (PP), maleic anhydride polypropylene (MAPP) and bio-epoxy resin as auxiliary materials. This products includes a bank (Facet Stool), cookware (Dress Your Pans), shelf (Junta), footwear (Zouri), lamp (Matteo Lamp) and a modular floor (Kort).
