Demands for Bio-Polymer Compound (BPC) has attracted attention in various applications from industrial to medical. Thus, mechanical and thermal stability properties of recycling waste BPC from industrial are very important to be investigated. The waste BPC for this study, based on is the mixture of hydroxylated waste cooking oil with hardeners to produce Waste Bio-polymer Foam (WBF). The granulate of WBF were cast into the mould until all spaces evenly fill and compact into homogenous shape and thickness at 30 - 45 Bar for 2 hours using hot compression moulding. This method of BPC fabrication resultant in the tensile and flexural strength of 4.89 MPa and 18.08 MPa respectively. Meanwhile the thermal stability of BPC laminated was conducted by Thermal Gravimetric Analyzer (TGA) exhibited the first degradation occur at 263'C of soft segment than subsequently the second degradation at 351'C and last 416'C.
