1 Forestlumps is a global company utilizing the BUSINESS INCLUSIVE approach to bridge local producers of the Central European Balkans forest to the United States Elite BBQ cultures niche market. Forestlumps is a global company utilizing the BUSINESS INCLUSIVE approach to bridge local producers of the Central European Balkans forest to the United States Elite BBQ cultures niche market. We are bringing product to the market produced from virgin forest European Beech- wood feedstock in modern Twin-Retorts - our overall goal of BUSINESS SUSTAINABILITY {PEOPLE – PLANET – PROFIT}. We are bringing product to the market produced from virgin forest European Beech- wood feedstock in modern Twin-Retorts - our overall goal of BUSINESS SUSTAINABILITY {PEOPLE – PLANET – PROFIT}. Final product sample mock-up Currently seeking Capital Partners.

2 TWIN-RETORTS have two chimneys with vent ducts that transfer the Exo-Thermal 600 degree (centigrade) flue gases to the next retorts in tandem and / or the pre-Dry pre-Heat process line.

3 The verticle loading Twin-Retorts have a two vessel capacity. Each cylinder processes in an alternating cycle, heated by or supplying the exo-thermal heat from syn-gasses burned off in the lower common furnace chamber.

4 Forestlumps will positively affect the Profit levels (well above 30% to 40%) based on our utility maximizing expectations. Profitable Investment and Operations of Twin-Retorts have five Key Contributing factors. Forestlumps projections are: (-20%) for Investment Cost, (-10% to -15%) for Operations and Management Cost, (+50% to +250%) for Capacity of Processing Charcoal, (+25%) for Fuel (feedstock) prices and (+50% to 200%) for Market Price for Charcoal.

5 Non-formally educated villagers anywhere (as in Africa and China) can operate this equipment. Wood processing is simple, pre-Drying and pre-Heating is rudimentary work. Care by management and foremen must be concentrated on the Furnace and Vessels temperature. Safety cut-offs are both manual (2 nd ) and automatic (primary is built in). Normal procedural safety precautions must be taken with the high temperature extraction of the vessels, opening of the ovens and vessels and handling of the final product. Fresh charcoal is subject to spontaneous combustion.

6 Pollution from 1000 s of antiquated Balkan kilns is extreme. Tons of tar and wood vinigars flow from these kilns into the ground water and streams which are the only sources of potable water for the indigenous people. The air pollution is horrible but worse for the individual that stocks the antiquated kiln. Ten years on this job and you are a walking dead man. One Twin-Retort annually will displace 46 kilns and re-employ equally the same people.

7 The most perfect sources of carbon for active carbon comes from hardwood sources. Tons (in massive quantities) are never salvaged. Modern operations of Forestlumps will never have any lost waste. All the dust, fines and small pieces (<1.5cm) will be sifted, packaged and sold to active charcoal operations or soil amendment.

8 Europes best charcoal has come from this region since the Thirteenth (13th) Century. These kilns-men are multi-generations of families, even whole villages that specialize in charcoal. Forestlumps unites their trade-knowledge and their un-harvested forest waste with our human resources and technology to join the OLD WORLD with the NEW WORLD using Twin Retorts.

9 Europes finest charcoal, (OLD WORLD since the 13 th century - for the NEW WORLD) The new proto-type BOXED BAGGED packaging will have a Kraft paper bag for the internal containment of dust and fines. Strategically reduced to nominal amounts (less than <5%) by sifting during the final inspection packaging process at the Pack Facilities in the Port of Tampa.

20 The pre-money valuation of ($450K) is the value we put on our company (10,000 fully diluted shares) before getting the capital ($150K) we seek. The pre-money valuation of ($450K) is the value we put on our company (10,000 fully diluted shares) before getting the capital ($150K) we seek. Computed: We multiplied the fully-diluted shares immediately prior to the proposed financing (10,000 fully- diluted shares) by the price per share of the proposed financing ($45/share) to yield the pre-money valuation ($450K).

22 It is important to keep in mind; early stage investors will likely have their equity interest in our company diluted (made smaller) by later investors.

We intend to raise Venture Capital: If our early stage Private Equity Funders invest $150,000 at a pre-money valuation of $450K (and thus end up owning 33% of the company), and then a venture capital firm invests $1.25 million the following year at a pre-money valuation of $1.25 million, the original Private Equity Funders / investors will now own only half as much of the company, even though the company value has increased more than two-fold.
