Decarboxylation of tetrasodium edta

I'm trying to get ethylenediamine,
and making things is funnier than buying them,
so I looked arround and found tetrasodium edta.

Is the decarboxylation of tetrasodium edta possible like you would do with sodium benzoate (heating with sodium hydroxide) ?

No, even if you could easily decarb EDTA it would not yield ethylene diamine.

Reflux condenser?? I barely know her!
