Net Energy and Production

In 2016 Hexion sold seven sites and closed one other site. Production at the seven sites sold was offset by increased production at other sites. However, one of the sold sites was consistently one of the largest energy consuming (and GWP gas emitting) sites, which contributed to a decrease in energy consumption and energy intensity.

Energy and Global Warming Potential (GWP)

By selling a site that was consistently one of the largest GWP gas emitting sites due to the combustion of coal, Hexion achieved a decrease in GWP emissions and GWP Intensity.

GHG Intensity

Over the past few years the GWP Intensity (Global Warming Potential) Emissions divided by Total Production) has varied as the mix of products produced has changed to meet market demands, and as facilities have been added or removed from our production portfolio.
