Orion Engineered Carbons S.A. (NYSE: OEC), a leading global supplier of
specialty and high-performance carbon black, today announced the commercial
launch of ECORAXR Nature, a new family of products developed for rubber
applications utilizing industrial grade, plant-based oils; a renewable,

reinforcing carbon black grade made from renewable feedstocks which can be
used in critical tire tread construction. The product is currently being
tested by customers and will go into high volume manufacturing in the second
half of 2022.

commercially viable, carbon black products that drive sustainability across

a sustainable future.”

By exclusively using plant-based oils, ECORAXR Nature is a pathway to
lowering the net CO2 emissions within the tire industry supply chain.
