Recent Highlights
-Signed a Memorandum of Understanding ("MOU") with Pertamina, the state-owned energy company of the Republic of Indonesia, to begin the detailed project planning phase for the development of fuel ethanol projects in Indonesia. The MOU outlines the parties' intentions to establish a joint venture under which Celanese would have a majority share and would license its leading TCX Technology to the joint venture. Under the MOU, Celanese and Pertamina will select the first production location, initiate project permitting, and negotiate coal supply and other industrial partner agreements. Celanese and Pertamina expect to complete this phase of the MOU by the end of 2013.
