Latest patents enhance manufacturing process for acesulfame potassium
high intensity sweetener products

Celanese Corporation (NYSE:CE), a global specialty materials company,
today announced it has been granted four new patents by the United
States Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO) covering manufacturing
process improvements to produce acesulfame potassium (Ace-K).

The patents granted by the USPTO (US 10,023,546; US 10,029,998; US
10,029,999; and US 10,030,000) all provide substantial technology
advantages to Celanese and its customers for the production and quality
of Sunett® Ace-K sweetener. With the issuance of such patents, these
technology advantages are recognized as exclusive to Celanese, thereby
increasing the benefit to customers by ensuring the highest quality and
reliability standards of its Sunett® portfolio.

"As the inventor and only Western producer of Sunett® Ace-K, Celanese
has developed a series of best practices to deliver one of the
industry's highest quality artificial sweeteners, ensuring product
purity, supply reliability and accountability," said Scott Sutton, Chief
Operating Officer. "Celanese continuously invests in manufacturing and
quality improvements and is dedicated to robust research, development
and customer support for the sweetener products manufactured by our
patented process. We are pleased that the USPTO has granted Celanese
these patents, which will continue to place Celanese as a leading,
global high intensity sweetener manufacturer. We intend to vigorously
defend our patented technology against unlawful importation and uses in
the United States."

Two hundred times sweeter than sugar, Sunett® Ace-K is a zero-calorie,
dental-friendly, high-intensity sweetener manufactured in a
single-purpose plant with unique and patented processing steps. It
provides optimized applicability and consistent sweetness profiles for
better taste and excellent blending characteristics. Demand for high
quality Ace-K continues to grow as consumers look for alternatives to
full-sugar products.
