Abstract: Wastes generated during the tanning process can be categorized as buffing wastes, shaving wastes, keratin waste (mainly from the nails and hair) and skin trimmings. The main component of all these wastes is protein.in fact keratin is one type of protein. Leather waste from chrome tanned leather, which is proteinous, impregnated with chromium, synthetic fat, oil, tanning agents and dye chemicals is one of the difficult tannery wastes to manage. In this project, various leather- polymer- EPDM composites have been made and their properties have been analyzed. polymer-leather composite modified with filler material has showed good performance with high decomposition temperature, good bonding between the constituents and low density (Hence, low weight). The strong mechanical phase interaction brought by the chemical bonding with leather interface was confirmed by FTIR analysis. Thermal Gravimetric Analysis revealed the higher decomposition temperature for the composites.
