Project presentation

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.

tons

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.

30% cut in primary fossil resources

MMAtwo targets a decreased utilization of primary fossil resources in the process industry of at least 30%.

20% cut in CO2 emission

MMAtwo concepts should provide a decrease in CO2 emissions of at least 20%.

RECENT NEWS & EVENTS

Pilot trials – November 2020

Another successful campaign: the MMAtwo Consortium managed to run a full week of depolymerization trials in Düsseldorf at small industrial scale (equivalent to approximately 1000 tons/yr capacity) using various PMMA wastes as feedstock to produce high quality rMMA. Among the wastes, all processed using MMAtwo technology, were End-of-Life PMMA WEEE waste and PMMA composite waste…
