Lalou Roucayrol, the skipper of Arkema’s Multi50, will once again be facing the elements on November 4, on the Route du Rhum, in a quest for another victory. His “dream machine,” as he calls the trimaran, is a “concentration of technologies that allows us to cross the oceans as fast as possible.”
Today was the kickoff meeting of the MMAtwo project. A partner of MMAtwo, a European project for the recycling by depolymerization of PMMA waste to turn it back into raw material, Arkema will also be chairing the project’s executive committee. This role reflects the Group’s desire to promote the recycling of finished products and the circular economy, and is consistent with its commitment in favor of the UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDG).
Arkema will have a strong presence at the 2018 NPE International Plastics Expo in Orlando, FL, next month (exhibit space South-34146), featuring products from several business units that serve the broad plastics marketplace. The product portfolio will range from new offerings in thermoplastic elastomers, PVDF resins, acrylic resin and sheet, bio-sourced solutions, new high performing thermoplastic resins, soybean-based plasticizers, and high performing impact modifiers and compatibilizers for nylons and polyesters.
