IPSCIO Record ID: 28564

License Grant
We are a party to royalty Agreements and License fee Agreements, both domestically and internationally, whereby the Company and the inventor of the K-Fuel process, are entitled to receive royalty and License fee revenue from each Company-owned plant and plants owned by third parties who are various undisclosed Licensees of the K-Fuel process.
License Property
For each commercial K-Fuel plant constructed, the plant owner is generally required to pay a royalty on the selling price per ton of K-Fuel produced and a License fee per ton of K-Fuel produced based on the annual design capacity of each plant. Mr. Koppelman is entitled to 25% of the royalties and License fees generated at each plant. KFx is entitled to the remaining 75% of royalties and License fees. The royalty to Mr. Koppelman will cease when the cumulative payments to him reach the sum of approximately $75.7 million. Mr. Koppelman passed away in October 1997 and all his rights as discussed above are held by his estate. In his will, Mr. Koppelman bequeathed 50% of his net royalty stream to Theodore Venners, our Chairman and Chief Technology Officer.
Field of Use
The K-Fuel process applies heat and pressure to coal with a high water percentage to reduce moisture from approximately 30% in the low-Btu coal to 8% to 12% in the K-Fuel. As a result, the heat value is boosted by 30% to 40%, resulting in its availability for economical use in power generating facilities. Further, the K-Fuel process removes a significant amount of impurities from the low-Btu coal allowing for the power generating industry to comply with increasingly stringent air emission standards and environmental regulations.

IPSCIO Record ID: 27247

License Grant
The Company entered into a royalty amendment agreement with thehe inventor of the K-Fuel Technology granted it a non-exclusive right and license ('Partnership License') for the K-Fuel Technology (without the right to sublicense) to produce coal in the Partnership Facility using the Series 'C' technology and to use or sell anywhere the product derived therefrom; technology that enhances the combustion characteristics of coal and other carbonaceous fuels (the 'K-Fuel Technology').
License Property
The K-Fuel Technology uses heat and pressure to physically and chemically transform high-moisture, low-energy per pound coal and other organic feedstocks into a lower-moisture, high-energy solid fuel ('K-Fuel').

IPSCIO Record ID: 27055

License Grant
The Company granted an LFC Process license which TEK-KOL will receive royalties on net proceeds from the sale of liquids produced by the first Level I and Level II plants.
License Property
The LFC Process is designed to convert and upgrade low-rank coal to create a higher Btu more efficient and less environmentally polluting fuel to produce power and simultaneously produce low temperature coal tars, which contain valuable chemicals. The LFC Process produces two products, one called Process Derived Fuel (PDF), and the other, Coal Derived Liquids (CDL).

License Grant
The Cell Technology Transfer and License Agreement provides the Korean Licensee the rights to manufacture carbonate fuel cell components in South Korea based on DFC technology and grants commercial rights to Asian markets.

The Agreement harmonizes two prior License Agreements so that the Licensee has rights to manufacture the entire carbonate DFC power plant.

License Property
The Licensor will collaborate with the Licensee under the License Agreement to provide design and procurement assistance for the facility.

A production facility will be built to produce up to 140 megawatts of fuel cell components annually, with equipment initially procured for an expected annual production volume of 70 megawatts.

Construction will begin in early 2013 and fuel cell component production is expected to start in late 2014 or early 2015.

Field of Use
The Licensee is Korea’s largest independent power producer.

DFC power plants provide ultra clean, efficient and reliable distributed power generation solutions. Direct FuelCells combine a fuel such as natural gas or renewable biogas with oxygen from the ambient air to efficiently produce ultra-clean electricity and usable high quality heat through an electrochemical process. DFC power plants emit virtually no pollutants due to the absence of combustion. Avoiding the emission of nitrogen oxide (NOx), sulfur dioxide (SOx) and particulate matter supports clean air regulations and benefits public health. The high efficiency of the fuel cell power generation process reduces fuel costs and carbon emissions, and producing both electricity and heat from the same unit of fuel further supports favorable economics while also promoting sustainability.

License Grant
In July 2010, the Company acquired the rights to certain technology for a solar forced air furnace, patent pending, from the Undisclosed Inventors.
License Property
This technology could provide a practical method of delivering forced air heat to homes in cold climates using solar energy. The solar forced air furnace is expected to be used as a stand-alone forced air heating system or in conjunction with an existing forced air furnace. The system is anticipated to provide hot air to heat commercial or residential spaces needing heat during cold weather. The device is designed to collect energy from the sun, concentrate it into heat and transfer that heat to a moving air stream which is circulated into various spaces.

In August 2010, the Company conducted initial tests on prototype equipment and confirmed that the solar forced air furnace system was generating substantial amounts of heat.

Field of Use
The rights granted focus on the development of solar powered products and consumer electronic devices.
