Second generation methyl methacrylate

The main objective of the MMATWO project is to construct a novel and fast growing polymethyl methacrylate (PMMA) recycling value chain through depolymerisation and recovery of a monomer grade sold at 90% of virgin MMA price. MMATWO targets to reduce the energy needs by more than 70% and CO2 emissions by more than 60%.
Quantis will evaluate the environmental performance of the developed recycled MMA and associated value chain, and compare it to virgin MMA  for selected applications.
