1 Chinese Regulations Innovation you can build on™ Coastal Zone Permit Application Public Hearing August 2014 Robert Stewart Site Director New Castle Delaware

2 Chinese Regulations Innovation you can build on™ Company Overview CRODA is a world leader in natural-based specialty chemicals sold to virtually every industry  Headquarters in UK – Global reach with over 3200 employees in 34 countries  Global businesses broadly classified in three market sectors  Consumer Care  Performance Technologies and Industrial Chemicals  Health Care and Crop Care  Key Business Drivers  Innovation  Technology  Sustainability 66 % of Raw Materials sourced from renewable resources

3 Chinese Regulations Innovation you can build on™ SUSTAINABILITY Our Approach At CRODA, sustainability means doing business the right way: environmentally, socially and financially. This means adapting and challenging ourselves to meet business needs, today and in the future. Our Responsibility At CRODA, we are fully committed to: using renewable raw materials and environmentally sensitive processes; producing innovative ingredients that help improve the sustainable credentials of end products; and supporting our people and the communities in which we operate.

4 Chinese Regulations Innovation you can build on™ SUSTAINABILITY Our Targets Based on 2010 reduce - Energy consumption by 5% by Water consumption by 10% by Waste to landfill by 20% by 2015 Generate 25% of total energy requirements from non-fossil fuel sources by 2015

5 Chinese Regulations Innovation you can build on™ 4.5% reductio n How are we doing against the targets? Continued focus on energy savings Offsetting new asset additions

6 Chinese Regulations Innovation you can build on™ Minimizing the impact of our operations The courage to implement change 2012 Landfill gas conversion Groundbreaking ceremony, Atlas Point 20 yr Landfill gas supply agreement with Cherry Island Renewable Energy (CIRE) $6MM Project for Combined Heat & Power (CHP) units for LFG conversion $2.1MM For steam boiler providing additional LFG conversion & other fuels 2014 Project completed with go live of 3,000 solar panels at Atlas Point $2.3MM For solar panel project using Delaware manufactured panels

7 Chinese Regulations Innovation you can build on™ Raising the renewable energy bar We saved enough energy to: Renewable Energy – Minimizing the impact of our operations Our reality Minimum 25% of energy from non-fossil fuels by 2015 YTD Energy generated by renewable land fill gas & solar Our target 25% >60% Innovation you can build on™ Power > 1,200 homes From LFG and solar Fuel 2.7 Million cars From steam power Reduce CO 2 Emissions For greener footprint

8 Chinese Regulations Innovation you can build on™ How are we doing against the targets? Equivalent to filling 41Olympic size swimming pools 15.9% reduction Reduction of 27,335,995 gallons annually

9 Chinese Regulations Innovation you can build on™ 78% reduction How are we doing against the targets? Equivalent to 63 less truckloads every year to landfill Reduction of 1,638,203 lbs annually

10 Chinese Regulations Innovation you can build on™ Glycols Storage CO2 Removal EO Reaction Ethanol Dehydration Reaction Ethylene Purification EO Storage EO Purification Glycols Reactor Steam EO purge Ethanol to Ethylene Oxide Process Flow Diagram Ethanol Ethylene Oxide Oxygen Carbon Dioxide Ethylene Glycol Water

11 Chinese Regulations Innovation you can build on™ OUR PROCESS SAFETY MANAGEMENT SYSTEM IS ALIGNED WITH THE OHSAS HEALTH AND SAFETY MANAGEMENT SYSTEM A detailed Process Hazard Analysis is conducted by a multi- disciplinary team A six-week effort evaluating each process component step-by- step using process flow drawings Failure modes of critical components are analyzed The process safety aspects of this project have been thoroughly analyzed and addressed How do we ensure our processes are safe?

12 Chinese Regulations Innovation you can build on™ Apply industry recognized safeguards e.g. American Chemistry Council Ethylene Oxide Safety Task Group design manual Design according to nationally recognized standards (API, ASME) Review by external third parties and regulatory agencies e.g. DNREC Boiler Safety, State Fire Marshal, etc. Install multiple layers of protection Use automatic interlocks that shutdown the process if any abnormalities are detected Provide redundant detections systems Automate with computer control systems which eliminate human errors How do we ensure chemicals are not released?

13 Chinese Regulations Innovation you can build on™ Project & Coastal Zone “Footprints” Project is within CZ footprint Project area previously disturbed 30+% decrease in impervious area

14 Chinese Regulations Innovation you can build on™ Summary of Project Air Emissions DNREC required Croda to offset air emissions 1.3 to 1 or 10.4 tpy

15 Chinese Regulations Innovation you can build on™ Air Emission Offsets Croda Projects

16 Chinese Regulations Innovation you can build on™ Water/Wastewater Offsets Croda Projects

17 Chinese Regulations Innovation you can build on™ CRODA is a socially conscious, responsible corporate citizen CRODA’s chemical facilities are built and maintained to world class standards for process safety CRODA is committed to continue to invest in its Atlas Point facility to make it safe and reliable CRODA is dedicated to providing its customers with sustainable products The ethanol to ethylene oxide facility is a significant advancement in making CRODA’s products sustainable The ethanol to ethylene oxide facility will - preserve over 200 full time current employees for the foreseeable future - create some 250 construction jobs and 28 new well-paid permanent jobs - eliminate the transportation of ethylene oxide by railcar Summary

18 Chinese Regulations Innovation you can build on™ CRODA has met the requirements of Delaware’s Coastal Zone Act, and requests the Department issue a Coastal Zone permit in accordance with the statute Conclusion
