    LG Chem Saves $4M Annually Using AspenTech’s aspenONE® Advanced Process Control Solution

    AspenTech Software and Services Implementation Also Helps Korea’s Largest Chemical Company Achieve Operational Excellence Goals

    BURLINGTON, Mass — January 5, 2010 — Aspen Technology, Inc. (OTC: AZPN.PK) today announced that LG Chem's deployment of aspenONE Advanced Process Control has resulted in $4 million of annual operational savings, while also helping the chemical company achieve its operational excellence goals.

    • In a single plant - the Daesan ethylene facility - the AspenTech Services team's implementation of aspenONE APC delivered a 2 percent increase in ethylene and propylene production, and reduced total NCC energy consumption 1.5 percent while meeting plant constraints.
    • LG Chem also realized operational excellence goals with reduced loss of ethylene and propylene, and more stabilized operations compared to previous issues of frequent flooding and product off-specifications.
    • As a result of the initial project's success, AspenTech is implementing a Real Time Optimization (RTO) project to further improve operational excellence at LG Chem.
