1 June, XXX 2012 Jean-Claude Steinmetz On the road to eco-mobility: Innovative solutions for lightweight vehicles

2 GROUP PRESENTATION COPYRIGHT 2011 – SOLVAY SA NV 2 A major player in chemicals with compelling strengths Within top 10 worldwide largest chemical players from developed markets 90% of sales in businesses ranking among the top 3 global leaders Global presence with 40% of sales in fast growing countries Diversified end-markets creating resilience through cycles Differentiated innovation focused on sustainable development Committed to operational excellence targeting best-in-class process efficiency REBITDA: operating result before amortization, non recurring elements, financial charges and taxes * From continuing operations € 12.7bn NET SALES € 2.1bn REBITDA 110 INDUSTRIAL SITES € 825m* NET INCOME 29,000 EMPLOYEES 55 Countries 2011 Proforma Our strengths

3 Jean-Claude Steinmetz 3 An increased regulatory pressure to reduce CO 2 emissions g CO2 / km g CO2 / km g CO2/km g CO2/km g CO2/km

4 Jean-Claude Steinmetz , European Federation for Transport & Environment OEMs face several billion of euros penalties  What will be the repercussion on the customer’s price? Meeting CO 2 emission targets is a demanding challenge for most OEMs

5 Jean-Claude Steinmetz 5 3- Car structure Lightweight solutions Innovation regarding: Innovation is the Key to limit penalties impact 1- Car conception Electrical vehicle Hybrid vehicle 2- Powertrain performance Engine downsizing

6 Jean-Claude Steinmetz 6 Aerodynamics SCx decrease of 5dm2   -2g CO2 Rolling resistance - 10%   -2g CO2 More efficient power train 10% fuel consumption   -15g CO2 Auxiliaries air conditioning / lightning  from -2 to -10 g CO2 Available technologies to meet 2015 CO 2 emission target Plastic part weight savings   -3g CO2 Aluminium, high-strength steel & redesign   -10g CO2 Source: PSA Moveo june kg / year Average vehicles weight Weight (kg) New Peugeot 208: kg vs 207 New Audi A3: - 80 kg vs previous model

7 Jean-Claude Steinmetz 7 7 Weight reduction 2025 Stake: >100kg weight saving 2010 Target 95g CO 2 /km Thermoplastic composites Thermoplastic compounds New materials will allow breakthrough vehicle weight saving NON STRUCTURALSEMI STRUCTURAL STRUCTURAL 130g CO 2 /km

8 Jean-Claude Steinmetz 8 Required stakes to meet 2020 CO 2 emission targets SAFETY COST COMPETITIVENESS RECYCLING VEHICLE RETHINK & REDESIGN CHALLENGESMEANS TO SUCCEED PROCESS PARTNERSHIPS WITH OEMs WEIGHT SAVING TARGET: -20% = 200kg mass reduction JOINT REGULATIONS COLLABORATIVE R&D PROGRAMS SUVENTIONS Industry Institutions

9 Jean-Claude Steinmetz 9 9 Partnership & Collaborative programs: FastLite, the lightweight program launched by french OEMs for Body-In-White applications Objectives: build a B-Pillar composite demonstrator Develop a glass or carbon reinforced Polyamide composite material Develop part manufacturing and integration process to meet automotive cycle times Validate structural crash performance TODAY B-pilar TOMORROW Body-in-White A first step to demonstrate the feasibility of Polyamide composite solutions on BIW structure Partnership with:

10 Jean-Claude Steinmetz 10 Metal solution Polyamide solution Process: Lightweight seat structure developed with Faurecia Composite inserts Target: 35% weight saving 20% weight saving Crash performance under validation Partnership with:

11 Jean-Claude Steinmetz 11 Injection of Fan and Shroud Module A unique collaborative approach with a multi-criteria analysis for the whole value chain Photochemical oxydation 1 Unique ACV because of same design and weight Recycled Technyl® production Non Recycled Technyl® production 2 ACV because of different formulation ChemistFormulatorTier 1OEM + User Assemblage du véhicule UtilisationFin de vie Climate change (Greenhouse gas emissions) AcidificationOzone layer diminutionEnergy consumptionEutrophisation (aquatic environment disturbance) Non renewable ressources selling out 7 environmental indicators in this Life Cycle Assessment A complete Life Cycle Assessment Vehicle assembling UsingEnd of life

12 Jean-Claude Steinmetz 12 The introduction of a recycled polyamide reduces substantially the part’s environmental impact during it whole life (from -9% to – 28%). It has been demonstrated for all evaluated points.
