  3. 3. Executive Summary Page 3 of 16B.- CAPITALIZATION:VALUE OF ASSETS OWNED BY PROMOTERS:The Assets Owned by the Promoters could be Valued at the present date, in a Total amount of atleast USD $ 300.0 M (Three Hundred Millions USA Dollars): (1..7): 1. The Executive Global Integrated Project, for a Total Investment Value of USD $ 450.0 M, fully developed with all the studies available and ready to be actuate, by means of which the company will install and start up the Production of N° 4 (Four) different types of New Generation BIO-FUELS Plants all made by green renewable energy sources. Each Global Integrated Project will have or include the following Individual Production Plants: (Mentioned in their respective Startup order)  MICROEMULSION (Environmental Safer Substitute of Diesel Fuel)  BIO-DIESEL (Methyl Ester of Vegetable Fatty Acid - Safer Substitute of Diesel Fuel)  VEGETABLE OIL (Derivate from Castor Oil Seeds or any other type of Oil Seeds)  BIO-ETHANOL (Ethyl Alcohol to be used mixed as a Fuel component for unleaded “Green” Gasoline) 2. The right to buy from NTE (NEW TECHNOLOGY & ENGINEERING S.A. - Provider & Main Contractor), all the Equipment & Machinery under a “Turn Key Job” modality, all included, at a Special & Exclusive Floor Cost Price for all our projects, including in that Price, the per life usufruct-exploitation rights of the Patented High Technology & Engineering that will come included within the different Equipment & Machinery and which will permits to achieve the highest level of efficiency in all the processes at the lowest costs. This Price Difference, between the present Official Prices of NTE (the Prices that they will apply to others for the same Equipment & Machinery) and our Special & Exclusive Floor Cost Price represents approx. USD $ 296.8 M. (Please see the Annex N° 1). 3. Total and deep Knowledge of the Promoters on all the Technology & Engineering that will be applied or used in any Plant and stage of the Project. 4. The Business-Specifics knowledge and all its related benefits (i.e. Marketing, Customers & Logistics) which grant to the Promoters to have all the Production Totally Sold in advance, by contracts & agreements that would be signed as soon as the installation of the Production Plants will start. The presently unsatisfied demand & potential of the USA & Canada markets especially for BIO-ETHANOL is very high. Our main competitor for BIO-ETHANOL within the area could be only Brasil, but they have to pay around 10-12% extra customs taxes to get and sell in to the USA & Canada markets, so, their Selling Prices for BIO-ETHANOL will always be higher than ours, because the products coming from the DR do not have to pay such taxes.

  6. 6. Executive Summary Page 6 of 16E.- DBT FOUNDATIONThe DBT FOUNDATION will be a completely separate Non-ProfitInstitution of Social Interest that will be connected with DOBIOTECHjust because it will be the responsible for Planting, Cultivate andProduce the CASTOR OIL SEEDS which will be used in the productionprocess of the VEGETABLE OIL that will then be processed andconverted into BIO-DIESEL.The capital investment that is foreseen to perform in to the DBT FOUNDATION shall be of: USD $10.0 M: To activate the Foundation creating the nurseries to grow the mother Production Plants andstart seedbeds for the first 2,500 hectares..Castor Oil Plant’s Market Demand the Castor Oil crop is very attractive mainly because it has thesecharacteristics:  Can be easily planted in non rich fields, upland, hillside, river beds, stream banks, salted land, and even in marginal lands.  Resistant to drought.  Requires low soil fertility.  Requires very low to null soil irrigation (water)  Contains valuable oil properties.  Produces satisfactory yields after a short period (about 140 to 160 days)These qualities are the reasons why Castor Oil Plant production is expanding worldwide. With itsmany advantages and commercial uses, there is no doubt why Castor Oil commands high demandin the international market. For sure, this demand will only grow higher as the uses of Castor Oilcontinue to increase year after year. Calle Hatuey No. 39 Of.

  11. 11. Executive Summary Page 11 of 16H.- FAQWhy DOBIOTECH decided to settle in the Dominican Republic? debajo deWhy DOBIOTECH can purchase/obtain the Equipment & this Special Technology at a PreferentialPrice? debajo deWhy DOBIOTECH Production Costs are Lower Compared to Other ProductionPlants/Manufacturers Using Conventional Technology? debajo deWhy the Technology of DOBIOTECH & NEW-TECHNOLOGY is more efficient? debajo deWhy aren’t there Other Companies with the Same or Similar Technology? debajo de1. Why DOBIOTECH decided to settle in the Dominican Republic? a) DOMINICAN REPUBLIC has a very STRATEGIC GEOGRAPHICAL POSITION, in relation with the MARKETS which have the largest Consumption Potential of BIO-ETHANOL the USA and CANADA, which offers us the total Exemption on Customs Import Tariffs to reach those Markets (i.e. Brazil, pays 12%). b) We found an ideal location in Manzanillo, Montecristi, where in addition to having the necessary support from the Local Government, there are also already available at least Two very important logistic factors:  A Deeper Bay that allows the Entry and Maneuver of Large Ships;  A Pier already available with Excellent Structure; c) The Stability of the Rules, Laws, Protection and Welcome, that the Dominican Government has historically offered and still offering to the Foreign Investment and/or Investors;2. Why DOBIOTECH can purchase/obtain the Equipment & this Special Technology at a Preferential Price? Mainly because the President & CEO of DOBIOTECH and another of the Directors, (Mr. Bernardi) are in this Business since more than 12 years. In the past as partners in the same old company with the today owners of NTE and actively participated in the Research, Development and Design of the New Technology and many of the patents that are involved and applied in all the Machinery and Equipment that NTE will sell to DOBIOTECH. Mr. Dal Boni and Mr. Bernardi knows in deep details, Designs, and particulars of the Patents and its functioning, the applied High Technology and how it works, and more importantly, the Costs related and involved in the construction of the Equipment and the Machinery.

  12. 12. Executive Summary Page 12 of 16 For such reasons and as a “compensation agreement” NTE is leaving to DOBIOTECH, the Machinery and the Equipment at the cost level, almost without recharging profit margins, and without charging the cost of royalties for the usufruct of the patents.3. Why DOBIOTECH Production Costs are Lower Compared to Other Production Plants/Manufacturers Using Conventional Technology? One of the main reasons of it is because 95% of the “Latin American” Ethyl Alcohol Producers are Sugar Cane Manufacturers and they are mostly oriented to produce the Sugar and then, as a secondary activity, they enter many years ago in to the business of the BIO-ETHANOL production and their manufacturing process is quite different to ours. Their Sugar Cane cultivation requires to have large extensions of adequate land, and support the all the costs of it. The Sugar Cane Cultivation will give you as a maximum only two harvests or “Zafras” per year. This means that they are not producing on a constant continuous basis but on very big Lots or Batches basis. Once the cane has been cut, if not used will rot, therefore, it can not be stored for long, so which they will fail to use they have to burn it. Their manufacturing process is the same as per to produce the Sugar. They have to harvest the Sugar Cane, Transport many Tons of it to the Sugar Mill, press it at least three times, obtain the Sugar Cane Juice (Guarapo), which has to be clarified using Steam and evaporate the major possible part of the water contents, to obtain a kind of “honey”. At this point, they could decide, how much of this “honey” will go to produce Sugar and how much will go to Fermentation and later produce BIO-ETHANOL. They can’t use the Hyper Fermentation System because they are Fermenting by Lots or Batches. Therefore they production of BIO-ETHANOL is also not constant, because it depends of the contents of “fermentable components” of each Lot of Honey. Finally, they has a 15-20 years older Distillation System or units based mostly on the Old Distillation Concept/Process where the water is evaporated by the use of Steam and by several steps to obtain at first an 85-90% BIO-ETHANOL concentration. After this, they use a Volatile Solvent (Cyclohexane or Benzene) to “break” the “Azeotrope” (water molecularly tied to the BIO-ETHANOL), and finish the Distillation to obtain a 99% purity BIO-ETHANOL. We in DOBIOTECH do not need to do all of that above described Process! We can use any Bio- Masse as Raw material. Our ideal is to use the Bagasse of the Sugar Cane that the Sugar manufacturers could not take advantage of. Our first Step of High Technology is a Set of Equipment that has a Patented process whereby we mill the Bagasse fibers in to a very small and totally dried particles. Therefore we can stock up it for long times and use it all the year on. Then, through a Patented Physical-Mechanical System (without using Steam or Acid or Ammonia and at room temperature), we could separate from the Dry Bagasse Particles, the Lignin from the Cellulose and the Hemicelluloses. Subsequently, by an Enzymatic Process we can Convert the Cellulose in to 100% Fermentable Sugars. In an On Line 100% Continuous Process, 24 hours per day, we send those above mentioned Fermentable Sugars directly to the Molecular Hyper Fermentators units, where we had sent before, directly, also the Hemicelluloses, and all this together; will start the Anaerobic Fermentation Process with the presence and “help” of particular Enzymes and Yeasts.

  13. 13. Executive Summary Page 13 of 16 The Anaerobic Molecular Hyper Fermentation Process is normally done at room temperature, and/or eventually if necessary, we could use a very small amount of Steam to heat up the broth. Our Molecular Hyper Fermentators units, will count with a special patented System/Software, controlled by a PLC that will automatically measures the temperature, the contents of Alcohol (Ethanol) that will be generated, and the CO2 that is developed during the Fermentation Process. As the Fermentation Broth reaches the desired Alcoholic (Ethanol) level, is Automatically sent to the following phase of the Distillation.4. Why the Technology of DOBIOTECH & NEW-TECHNOLOGY is more efficient? Our Distillation process will be done with the most modern High Technology available in the world in this moment. Our Distillation Equipment, (that also is totally automatic and controlled by a PLC and a Software Program designed specially to perform this Process), will Base it Efficiency, Low Cost, Quality and Productivity, by the use of 3 different New High Technical concepts: a) The CMMD (Catalytic Membranes Molecular Distillation); b) The VDUHPA (Vacuum Distillation Under High Pressure Atmosphere) c) The DVLT (Distillation at Very Low Temperature) By Combining the above mentioned High Technologies, we can obtain among other benefits, the following results: a) We have NO need to "Re-Distill" like the others producers do. This means that our Equipment will handle the Distillation Process in just only one Step or Passage of the Broth through the Distillatory Units, avoiding normal losses caused by the evaporation of an important % of the BIO-ETHANOL; b) We have NO need to use of Expensive & Environmentally unsafe Volatile Solvents, to “break” the Azeotrope. This Operation will be done directly and On Line by the CMMD; c) The VDUHPA and DVLT are giving us the benefit and the enormous advantage to allow us to work closely to the “room” average normal temperature of the D.R.! This means that we will use a very low amount of Steam, and also of Chiller capacity. So the energetic efficiency we will have will give always a very good balance, because we don’t have the need to Spend a lot of Energy to produce Steam and or Chilled or Cold Water, in order to be able to Produce another Energy or Combustible like the BIO-ETHANOL. The above is our full “Balance” explanation and answer to the question. In practice, we will have in average of at least 10-11% against all the “Standard” BIO-ETHANOL Producers and Especially against the Brazilian Producers. In addition and for the same reasons, our Production Efficiency will be at least of 15%. It means that we are able to convert in to BIO-ETHANOL at least the 15% of the Volume of the BIO-MASS that we will introduce from the beginning in to our process. Calle Hatuey No. 39 Of.

  14. 14. Executive Summary Page 14 of 165. Why aren’t there Other Companies with the Same or Similar Technology? This is really a good question! and the answer might be even better or perhaps very simple: Would be almost the same if we ask ourselves why not everyone buys a Ferrari or a Lamborghini? We are convinced that there are many reasons: a) If you will have a look to our chart Named “Internal Equipment Prices Comparison” on our Web site under the Investors password protected area, you will see, that the normal average price for the Equipment and the Machinery that we are getting from NTE is USD $ 562,200,000, so it is not cheap! Without any doubt, the Standard Old Technology is always cheaper than that, and there are not many people are willing to invest such sums of money to replace an old plant that still produces... b) Secondly, the nature of the Technicians, Engineers and the major part of the Advisors Technical Assistants or who normally develops the projects for production of BIO-ETHANOL, come from the "old school", studied about on the old technology, and we all know, that everything new, usually creates in any human being, certain “fears” and traumas. Most people prefer to continue doing what they already know and do not change… c) The major part of the present BIO-ETHANOL producers as we said above are considering the BIO-ETHANOL production as a secondary priority. Their first priority is always to produce Sugar! d) The major part of the present BIO-ETHANOL Production Production Plants, are old and very antiquate. While it is more expensive to make an overall or a technological upgrade to an old plant, than to build a total new one, the major part of the companies prefer go ahead with what they have. e) Finally, the Salesman and the major part of the Machinery and Equipment builders are choosing always the easiest way to do a business. They largely prefer to give to the customer what the customer is asking for… f) So, if you are asking for a Fiat, you will get a Fiat! They will never try instead to sell you a Lamborghini or a Ferrari. Calle Hatuey No. 39 Of. C-4 - Los Cacicazgos - 11108 Santo Domingo D.N.- República Dominicana E-Mail: -
