Cambridge, Massachusetts, USA, September 21, 2011 - Badger Licensing LLC (Badger) today announced that it was awarded contracts by LG Chem Ltd. (LG) to license its proprietary technology for a 200,000 metric tons per annum cumene plant and a 120,000 metric tons per annum bisphenol A (BPA) plant in Daesan, South Korea. The new plants will be part of an integrated, world-scale facility scheduled for mechanical completion and startup in 2012. LG operates one cumene plant and two BPA plants at their Yeosu site, all
licensed by Badger.

“Badger’s cumene technology provides high product purity, low capital cost, feedstock flexibility, and exceptionally long catalyst cycles, and our BPA plants have an industry reputation for high operational reliability and superior product quality,” said Mark Healey, president of Badger. “This repeat business reinforces our commitment to customer satisfaction as we continue to develop and improve these technologies.” More than nine million metric tons of cumene capacity has been licensed by Badger and its predecessor companies since the technology was introduced in 1995.

Badger began marketing BPA technology in 2004 and has licensed nearly two million metric tons of capacity.
