Electromagnetic interference produced by high-speed electrical and electronic systems (i.e., base stations, mobile phones, radar, television and radio transmitters) that facilitate daily life also caused a pollution to be dealtwith as a part of daily life. Increasing use of electronic devices arising from the rapid developments in science and technology increased electromagnetic interference in electronic devices well besides the electromagnetic pollution in the environment. Therefore, there is a tremendous need to develop effective protection against the negative effects of electromagnetic interference. The objective of this paper is to make the composite boards from the recycling of Tetra Pak packages and to investigate the effect of aluminum additive on absorption efficiency of electromagnetic interference at various frequencies. Experimental results showed that as the ratio of aluminum additive rate in the composite material increased, the attenuation ratio increased.
