There are many technological innovations along with the plastic materials that make life quite easy, are the versatile, inexpensive and durable. As a result of multi-directional use, there is an environmental body that should pay for plastic everywhere. The most effective solution to wastes from use is to recycle plastics by separating them from waste. Recycle; is important to reduce the consumption of resources and the amount of waste refuse. In this study, recyclable materials were used to evaluate the waste. In this study; it is aimed to improve the properties of recycled polypropylene (PP) and rice husk blend. The aim of this study is to contribute to the protection of the environment by using recycling products. Recycled polypropylene and rice husk materials were be granulated by mixing in the twin screw extruder to obtain a homogeneous mixture. 5, 10, 20, 30 percent rice husk were added to recycled PP. In order to ensure adhesion between the recycled PP and the rice husk, 5% of polypropylene copolymer (MA-g-PP) grafted into the mixture with 5% maleic anhydride were added. The samples; Moisture, abrasion, friction, melt flow index (MFI), Vicat softening temperature, HDT thermal distortion temperature, SEM tests were carried out and the effect of the rice husk was observed.
