INTRODUCTION Being Green - A lot of talk about GREEN but very few products on the shelf for concerned consumers to “do their part”. - Current GREEN products are either too expensive or do not work as well as conventional products. - The majority of consumers would GO GREEN if they only knew HOW. - Consumers are willing to pay a premium for a GREEN product. - Very little SUPPORT from GREEN manufacturers in driving consumers into the stores.
PRESENT SITUATION Marketplace - AUTO - 200+ million US licensed drivers - 236 million registered vehicles Passenger cars and light trucks - Over 600 million gallons of motor oil purchased annually in the US Roughly $7.2 billion - 345 million gallons purchased by “do-it-yourself” consumers - Only 12,000 US containment centers - 40% of oil pollution due to improper disposal of used motor oil Marketplace – Outdoor Equipment - 45 million 2 cycle engines sold every year in the US - Lawn Mowers, Weed Whackers, 4 Wheel, Scooters (300m Worldwide and 75%/ 25m of all transport in India alone) - Chain Saws, Leaf Blowers, Outboard Motors (1m) etc. AND 100’s of million exist today in the US and Billions Worldwide! Marketplace – Water Contamination - Car, Truck, and Marine Washing Happens at least 6 times A YEAR vehicle. – Toxic MESS
<ul><li>Why is now the time? </li></ul><ul><li>We need to save the air we breathe! </li></ul><ul><li>We need to reduce the contaminates that enter our bodies! </li></ul>
“ We need alternatives now!” <ul><ul><ul><li>Currently, 250 oil spills in the world </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><ul><li>We have a moral responsibility to explore oil alternatives </li></ul></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Reduce on and offshore drilling </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Creating a new oil category </li></ul></ul></ul></ul>
Green Earth Technologies A “totally green” clean tech company that combines renewable sourced feed stocks with proprietary technologies molded around the four ideologies of being GREEN: OUR FOCUS Biodegradable | Renewable | Recyclable | Environment Safe G-BRANDS are patent pending ULTIMATE BIODEGRADABLE products that are made with American grown base oils and the power of nanotechnology to provide superior “Environment Safe” performance. American Grown Animal Base Oils | American Grown Plant Base Oils
Benefits of G-Oil, the Totally Green Technology <ul><li>As determined by ASTM with “Ultimate Biodegradable” as the highest ranking standard (2.1 ASTM D-5864) that states 60% of a product must degrade within 28 days </li></ul><ul><li>- GET products degrade 70 to 90% within 9 days, 100% in 28 days </li></ul>- Replaces petrochemical base with animal fat or plant oils. - Sustainable and produced domestically - Reduces dependence on foreign oil <ul><li>GET bottles can be re-recycled. </li></ul><ul><li>Bottles are made with recyclable HDPE #2 plastic and the labels are printed with water based inks on recycled paper. </li></ul><ul><li>- MSDS Hazmat Rating of 0 , same as food handling </li></ul><ul><li>- Non Toxic </li></ul><ul><li>Best solution to air and ground pollution </li></ul>Renewable Environmentally Safe Recyclable Biodegradable
G-OIL® provides superior performance during the maximum oil change interval recommended by vehicle manufacturers while meeting the requirements of the American Petroleum Institute (API) SM and previous API gasoline standards. - The World’s 1 st and only bio-based API “SM” Certified motor oil - The Official Motor Oil of the American LeMans ANIMAL BASE OILS Motor Oil
CONVENTIONAL OIL VS G-OIL A better, simpler, and more accurate description of the difference in energy efficiency of G-OIL vs Conventional Motor Oil is this: An enormous amount of energy is utilized to manufacture motor oil from petroleum. First is the exploration and drilling of the well. Next is the extraction/pumping of crude oil from the earth. Then you transport the crude oil to the refinery. At this point, the crude oil is heated (700-800 degrees) and put under extreme pressure to break-down the carbon chains to make different products (notice the 400C /750F temperature). It is then stored in tanks until a purchaser/marketer transports the end product to a blender/bottling facility where it is unloaded, blended and bottled. In our process: We take the left over by-product (fat) of meat processing and transport it directly to our facility. (The cattle are not raised for their fat. They are raised for their meat. The fat is simply a by-product that American ingenuity has found other uses for. The latest being motor oil.) It is processed directly from the tanker truck at ambient temperature (not heated or at extreme pressure). When completed it is stored, blended and bottled on-site, packaged and shipped.
Performance <ul><li>Unlike traditional petrochemical-based motor oils, G- OIL is made with domestically grown renewable animal fats. </li></ul><ul><li>These saturated fats, whose molecular single-bond carbon chains are similar to common petroleum oils, have no harsh effects on the environment. </li></ul><ul><li>The unsaturated fatty ester, Methyl Oleate, helps to lower the pour point </li></ul><ul><li>High performance, “naturally” better than synthetics </li></ul><ul><li>Excellent lubricity (super performance through Molybdenum disulfide nanospheres) </li></ul><ul><li>High flash point </li></ul><ul><li>Can be stored anywhere, no shelf life </li></ul><ul><li>Reduce Dependence on Foreign Oil </li></ul>
<ul><li>5W-30 is the first and only BIO-BASE motor oil to achieve API SM Certification for gasoline engines. </li></ul><ul><ul><li>- Ultimate Biodegradable G-OIL biodegrades over 95% in just 9 days </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>- Naturally BETTER than SYNTHETICS </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>- Compatible with all motor oils </li></ul></ul>G-OIL API CERTIFICATION

G-OIL® outdoor small engine oils are formulated to meet the SM performance requirements of the American Petroleum Institute (API) for 4 cycle air-cooled engines as well as JASO-FD and API-TC for 2 cycle air cooled engines. NMMA certified “green” marine oil launched June 2010. ANIMAL BASE OILS Outdoor Power Equipment Oils
PLANT BASE OILS <ul><li>G-Branded appearance and cleaning products use plant oils to create a 1-4 </li></ul><ul><li>nanometer sized “micelles” that penetrates dirt, breaking it into billions of little </li></ul><ul><li>particles that constantly repel each other until eaten by the micro-organisms </li></ul><ul><li>and bacteria living in the ground. </li></ul><ul><li>Products will not harm the environment by seeping into the ground or traveling </li></ul><ul><li>into our waterways. </li></ul>

G-MARINE Fuel Spill Clean-UP! is compliant with OPA 90 as a deck side emulsifier, quickly eliminating oily residue and slickness commonly associated with oil and fuel deck side spills. Environment safe nano-emulsion technology is the GREEN solution when cleaning up oil and gas spills and is equally effective with fresh, salt and brackish water ... satisfaction guaranteed! Currently listed on the EPA NCP list.
ENVIRONMENT SAFE Chemicals, when stored or transported use a diamond shape diagram of symbols and numbers to indicate the degree of hazard associated with a particular chemical or material. The degree of health hazard of a material should indicate the degree of personal protective equipment required for working safely with the material; “0” is harmless, “1” requires safety glasses and gloves, “2” requires chemical goggles, work smock and local ventilation and “3” or “4” requires a respirator, full face shield, rubber apron, specialized gloves and handling tongs. When it comes to health or toxicity, GET-Products score a “0”!
