                               EXECUTIVE ORDER D—689

                              Relating to Exemptions under
                           Section 27156 of the Vehicle Code

                               EnviroEnergy Solutions, Inc.
                      Non—Thermal Plasma Diesel Exhaust Device

Pursuant to the authority vested in the Air Resources Board by Section 27156 of the
Vehicle Code; and

Pursuant to the authority vested in the undersigned by Sections 39515 and 39516 of the
Health and Safety Code and Executive Order G—02—003;

IT IS ORDERED AND RESOLVED: That installation of the Non—Thermal Plasma Diesel
Exhaust (NTPDE) device, manufactured by EnviroEnergy Solutions, Inc. of 35 Seacoast
Terrace, Suite 11 R, Brooklyn, New York 11235, has been found not to reduce the
effectiveness of the applicable engine emission control systems, and therefore, the
NTPDE device is exempt from the prohibitions in Section 27156 of the Vehicle Code for
installation on on—road vehicles equipped with 1994 through 2006 model—year diesel
engines with displacements from 5 to 15 liters.

The engines must be certified to no greater than 5.0 g/bhp—hr oxides of nitrogen,
0.10 g/bhp—hr particulate matter, and 15.5 g/bhp—hr carbon monoxide emission
standards. This Executive Order excludes engines originally certified with an after
treatment emission control system such as a diesel oxidation catalyst or a diesel
particulate filter.

The NTPDE device exempted under this Executive Order and its major components are
identified in Attachment A.

This Executive Order is based on emission tests conducted by EnviroEnergy
Solutions, Inc. with the NTPDE device. Test data showed no adverse impact on engine
emissions. The same emission impact is expected when the NTPDE device is installed
on any of the engines listed above.

This Executive Order is valid provided that installation instructions for the NTPDE
device do not recommend tuning the engines to specifications different from those of
the engine manufacturer.

Changes made to the design or operating conditions of the NTPDE device, as
exempted by the Air Resources Board, which adversely affect the performance of the
engine‘s emission control system, shall invalidate this Executive Order.

Marketing of the NTPDE device using identification other than that shown in this
Executive Order or for an application other than that listed in this Executive Order shall
be prohibited unless prior approval is obtained from the Air Resources Board.


                                             _2

sold with, or installed on an engine or a motor vehicle prior to or concurrent with transfer
to an ultimate purchaser.

This Executive Order does not constitute any opinion as to the effect the use of the
NTPDE device may have on any warranty either expressed or implied by the engine
manufacturer.

No claim of any kind, such as "Approved by the Air Resources Board," may be made
with respect to the action taken herein in any advertising or other oral or written
communication.

In addition to the foregoing, the Air Resources Board reserves the right in the future to
review this Executive Order and the exemption provided herein to assure that the
exempted add—on or modified part continues to meet the standards and procedures of
California Code of Regulations, Title 13, Section 2222, et seq.

THIS EXECUTIVE ORDER DOES NOT CONSTITUTE A CERTIFICATION,
ACCREDITATION, APPROVAL, OR ANY OTHER TYPE OF ENDORSEMENT BY THE
AIR RESOURCES BOARD OF ANY CLAIMS OF THE APPLICANT CONCERNING
ANTI—POLLUTION BENEFITS OR ANY ALLEGED BENEFITS OF ENVIROENERGY
SOLUTIONS, INC .‘S NON—THERMAL PLASMA DIESEL EXHAUST DEVICE.

Violation of any of the above conditions shall be grounds for revocation of this Executive
Order. The Executive Order may be revoked only after a ten—day written notice of               «J
intention to revoke the Executive Order, in which period the holder of the Executive
Order may request in writing a hearing to contest the proposed revocation. If a hearing
is requested, it shall be held within ten days of receipt of the request, and the Executive
Order may not be revoked until a determination is made after a hearing that grounds for
revocation exist.

Executed at El Monte, California, this 23         day of June 2011.

                                    EVALUATION SUMMARY

Manufacturer Name: EnviroEnergy Solutions, Inc.

Name of Device: Non—Thermal Plasma Diesel Exhaust Device

Background:
       EnviroEnergy Solutions, Inc. of 35 Seacoast Terrace, Suite 11 R, Brooklyn, New York
11235 has applied for exemption of its Non—Thermal Plasma Diesel Exhaust (NTPDE) device
from the prohibitions in Section 27156 of the California Vehicle Code (VC 27156). The device is
designed for on—road vehicles equipped with 1994 through 2006 model—year diesel engines.

Recommendation:
       Grant exemption to EnviroEnergy Solutions, Inc. and issue Executive Order D—689. The
exemption covers installation of the NTPDE device on on—road vehicles equipped with 1994
through 2006 model—year diesel engines with displacements from 5 to 15 liters. The engines
must be certified to no greater than 5.0 g/bhp—hr oxides of nitrogen, 0.10 g/bhp—hr particulate
matter, and 15.5 g/bhp—hr carbon monoxide emission standards. The exemption excludes
engines originally certified with an after treatment emission control system such as a diesel
oxidation catalyst or a diesel particulate filter. The NTPDE device exempted under this
Executive Order and its major components are identified in Attachment A.

Device Description:
       The NTPDE device is an after treatment system designed to reduce diesel engine
particulate matter (PM) emissions via electrostatic precipitation. it is used as an add—on system
on engines that were not originally certified with any after treatment emission control systems.
The system comprises of parallel, horizontal ionizing and collection plates and a diesel oxidation
catalyst. The number of plates varies proportionally with the power rating of the engine. PM is
first charged by a constant high voltage electrical discharge then collected on the collection
plates. The collected PM is washed off using water after plate—removal from the system or in
situ at regular engine maintenance intervals.

Discussion/Basis for the Recommendation:
       To demonstrate no adverse impact on engine emissions, EnviroEnergy Solutions, Inc.
tested the NTPDE device on two engines. The results follow:

        Test Engine              Test      NMHC/THC        NMHC+NOx        NOx       CO          PM

                             FTP     0.02                        —          325      0.77 0.077

            '             feuro im    *                          —        4.016.0    15.5 0.10
       Test results showed that emissions with the NTPDE device are below the applicable
emission standards. EnviroEnergy Solutions, Inc.‘s NTPDE device is not expected to have any
adverse impact on exhaust emissions when installed on any of the engines listed in the
Executive Order and meets the requirements for a VC 27156 exemption.
