Building a char collection vessel & condenser

The European MMAtwo consortium, which is led by the company Heathland of the Netherlands, aims at constructing a novel and fast growing PolyMethylMethAcrylate (aan elkaar geschreven) (PMMA-) recycling value chain based on the production of Second Generation MethylMethAcrylate (MMA) from post-consumer and post-industrial PMMA based products. This four-year European project is funded under the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation program (project Number 820687) and comprises 13 partners from six different countries representing all the stages of the PMMA value chain.

The consortium will test thermal decomposition of PMMA in a TRL7 extruder and have ordered SUSTER to design and build a char collection vessel and a condenser for the MMA monomer.
