In the course of our research we have found a solution for recycling coloured advertisingpaper in a cellulose fibre based composite. This paper quality is produced in huge quantities and canbe recycled with difficulties even in paper industry. Our aim was to produce a kind of organiccomposite that does not contain any adhesives fixing the matrix part of the composite. An eco-productgenerated this way has similar physical and mechanical attributes to medium density fibreboard(MDF). Fibre made of coloured newspaper can easily be adapted to board production while, at thesame time, this supports also the development of an environment oriented product policy. Boardbasedcomposites produced by utilizing recycled refuse paper can be used for designing and creatingenvironmentally friendly products following the eco-design trend.
