Company Information

Oberhausen (euro adhoc) - Oxea, the international chemical company, today
announced that it is one of the first in its sector to have received
certification from KPMG Cert for its energy management system in accordance with
the new international standard ISO 50001. Oxea's energy management system helps
the company to conduct its business more sustainably, to continue reducing its
energy consumption, and to employ its resources more efficiently. Although the
certification applies initially to the Oberhausen site, the other Oxea
production sites in Europe have already been included and can be certified
during the next audit. The new ISO 50001 standard goes beyond the requirements
of its predecessor, DIN EN 16001, and will replace it toward the end of April

"At Oxea we incorporated an efficient energy management system in our Integrated
Management System (IMS) from the very beginning. This enabled us to begin the
certification process early," said Dr. Günther Becker, Director Quality
Management at Oxea. Working closely with the highly motivated teams in our
manufacturing and technology units, we prepared ourselves thoroughly for the
certification by carrying out internal audits. This successful outcome is our
reward for all the work we have put in over the past six months", he added. 

"This new certification is a reflection of our commitment to energy management.
Active energy, environmental and quality management was an essential part of our
corporate policy from the outset," said Dr. Martina Flöel, spokesperson of the
Executive Board and responsible for production and technology at Oxea. "We
already make very efficient use of our available energy resources and try to
reduce our impact on the environment whenever possible. Every year, for example,
we save about 30,000 metric tons of carbon emissions just by feeding the waste
heat from Oxea production facilities into the Oberhausen district heating
network. When drawing up plans for new plants, we always make sure we can use
our waste heat in a similar way," Flöel continued.

Oxea is a global manufacturer of oxo intermediates and oxo derivatives, such as
alcohols, polyols, carboxylic acids, specialty esters, and amines. These
products are used for the production of high-quality coatings, lubricants,
cosmetics and pharmaceutical products, flavorings and fragrances, printing inks
and plastics. In 2011, Oxea generated revenue of about EUR 1.5 billion with its
1,365 employees in Europe, the Americas and Asia.
