A possible way of recycling plastic wastes has been investigated. Polyalkenyl-poly-maleic-anhydride derivates were synthesized and employed in ABS and HDPE blends to eliminate their immiscibility. By this way, the recycling of ABS and HDPE could be performed with improved mechanical properties of reshaped specimens.
