Elastomeric and plastic materials are used in different sectors of the European Union, and their recycling and reuse is still at a low level, compared to other types of waste (paper, glass, etc.). By approaching an efficient global strategy related to waste management, it is possible to make the transition to a circular economy with low CO2 emissions, offering the population a cleaner and safer environment. Due to the transformation of waste by various methods into new value-added products, we can say that their life cycle contributes to the efficiency of the economy and to the reduction of the negative impact on the environment. Research can make a difference in preventing the generation of technological and post-consumer polymeric waste by making biodegradable polymer composites that are harmless to the environment and ecosystem. The biodegradable polymer composites based on EPDM elastomer and rubber waste (rubber powder) were made on equipment specific to elastomers and characterized rheologically and physically-mechanically according to the standards in force.
