Trinseo: New PMMA depolymerization plant

With the inauguration of its new depolymerization plant for polymethyl methacrylate (PMMA) in Rho, Italy, Trinseo wants to help promote the potential of sustainable plastics. The depolymerization process is designed to enable efficient recycling of end-of-life PMMA and other difficult-to-recycle materials, which are ultimately used to produce acrylic resins, sheets and compounds with recycled materials. Commissioning of the demonstration plant is planned for the first quarter of 2024.

Trinseo's depolymerization plant is designed to produce high-quality recycled PMMA that matches the quality of virgin material. The material produced with the depolymerization process will be integrated into Trinseo's "R-Life" portfolio, which is focused on sustainability and includes both mechanically and chemically recycled PMMA grades. These products are used in the mobility, construction and consumer goods sectors and thus meet the growing demand for products that are developed with sustainability in mind.
