Last June 16th, 2020, the MMAtwo consortium completed the first 2 days of pilot tests on PMMA depolymerization at Japan Steel Works Europe (JSW), with partners from Heathland, Arkema and Process Design center (PDC). Members from Japan Steel Works Europe (JSW), Heathland, Arkema and Process Design center (PDC).
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.
