MMAtwo is part of the 6 finalists for the award “Renewable Material of the Year 2021”. MMAtwo has been selected between 36 innovative and excellent submissions from all over the world. The six nominees convinced the advisory board with brand-new applications that aim to avoid or substitute fossil-based virgin materials.
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.
