The MMAtwo virtual workshop on polymer recycling was held on September 15, 2020
Presented slides are available
The MMAtwo Project aims at constructing a novel and fast growing PolyMethylMethAcrylate (PMMA) recycling value chain based on the production of « Second Generation MethylMethAcrylate (MMA) » from post-consumer and post-industrial PMMA based products.
It is funded under the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation program (project Number 820687)
The main goal for the MMAtwo project is to create a new value chain for PMMA depolymerization. This four-year European project comprises 13 partners from six different countries representing all the stages of the PMMA value chain. MMAtwo partners have mobilized € 8.9 M, including a €6.6 M funding from the European Union Horizon 2020 Research and Innovation program centered on three priorities: scientific excellence, industrial primacy, and societal issues.
MMAtwo aims to secure the supply of commercial plant recycling units with at least 27 000 tons feedstocks PMMA scraps and end-of-life products.
If you have PMMA waste to valorize, please use the contact form, and indicate how many tons per year you would be able to supply.
Jean Luc Dubois (Arkema) will make a presentation at the « Plastic Recycling Technology” conference in Vienna, and he will present what Process Intensification can mean for PMMA depolymerization. Meet him at this occasion, and learn more about MMAtwo. Some products made from regenerated MMA will be displayed. https://www.ami.international/Events/Resources/Programme/Plastics_recycling_tech_EU21_Brochure.pdf
