October 27, 2020 – Lucite International and Agilyx Corporation, a pioneer in the advanced recycling of post-use plastics, announce plans to pursue a commercial-scale trial for recycling PMMA, commonly known as acrylic, at Agilyx’s Tigard, Oregon facility.
Clearer than glass, yet instantly recognisable; acrylic shields in public places became the instant solution to helping prevent the spread of this deadly virus. Now, these heroes of the plastics world are key to protecting you as countries, businesses and communities everywhere begin to ‘unlock’ and find a new sense of normal.
The next two years will see some significant upgrades at our Cassel site in the UK, demonstrating Mitsubishi Chemical’s commitment to the long-term future of one of the biggest MMA production plants in Europe and one of the group’s longest serving assets.
KAITEKI, put simply, is our way of working to achieve a sustainable future. What we live by every day in our thoughts and actions are the values that will help us get there.
We are pleased to announce that Lucite International is progressing the project to design and construct a 350,000 metric ton Methyl Methacrylate (MMA) plant in the US utilizing its proprietary ethylene based ALPHA technology.
