Currently, in Ethiopia and around the world, large amounts of ante- and post-mortem waste, such as clothing waste, plastic waste, and cotton waste, contribute to air pollution. This waste is simply discarded and thrown into the environment. Studying and characterizing this waste has many advantages. This work focused on the characterization and study of the tensile and flexural strength properties of these wastes for lightweight automotive body applications such as hoods.
