In the European Union, the potential for recycling technological and post-consumer polymeric waste is untapped. Their recycling and reuse are very low, compared to other types of waste such as glass, paper, etc., and the rates of storage, even of incineration, is very high in terms of percentage. Therefore, by reusing them, but also making use of new advanced technologies, we can contribute to improving the quality of products, and to environmental protection by recycling waste, protecting human health by eliminating toxins during their incineration, but also increasing turnover for global economic agents. Thus, this paper presents the obtaining and characterization of an antibacterial compound based on EPDM elastomer and wood waste (sawdust). The antibacterial compound is characterized from a physical-mechanical and structural point of view (FT-IR), all according to standards in force.
