© (2015) Trans Tech Publications, Switzerland.This paper aims to highlight the study of polymeric composite responsible development with the environment and with the growth of the recycling of materials, from the use of high density polyethylene (HDPE) with eucalyptus wood dust from the furniture manufacturing. The study started from a literature search where they were analyzed the factors involving the subject in question, highlighting the concept of polymer, synthetic fibers, wood powder presence, composites to identify and understand the problem in issue. The study was developed from mechanical, morphological and rheological testing of composites with concentrations of 0, 5, 10 and 20% wood in relation to the polymer matrix in order to characterize and compare the obtained materials. Based on this context, this study was developed based on material supplied by a sawmill, where we used wood dust to perform the necessary tests and experiments, thus aiming to analyze the possibility front the production of HDPE composite from the use of different fractions.
