Recycled polypropylene composites reinforced with quill from chicken feathers were prepared by extrusion process. Chicken feathers, a worldwide waste without any relevant application, may potentially replace nonrenewable reinforcements in composites. The effects of quill reinforcement on the density, as well as the thermal, thermo-mechanical and morphological properties of the composites, were evaluated. Quill showed an excellent compatibility with the polypropylene matrix, revealed by the good dispersion that was confirmed by the physical appearance observed with aid of scanning electron microscopy.
