1 1 CONFIDENTIAL AND PROPRIETARY ©T HE W ATER I NITIATIVE ®, TWI customizes and scales affordable and effective point-of-drinking solutions. March 2014

2 2 CONFIDENTIAL AND PROPRIETARY ©T HE W ATER I NITIATIVE ®, TWI® is a TEAM of leading global business executives and renowned scientists who develop and deploy “Point-of Drinking” (“POD”) water systems to address local conditions. TWI engages local communities to CO-CREATE unique business development models providing CUSTOMIZED AND SUSTAINABLE technology SOLUTIONS which effectively remove water contaminants. Just as cell phones enabled billions of people to leapfrog the need for telecommunications equipment, TWI’s Point-of- Drinking solutions will enable billions of people to leapfrog the need for central treatment plants and bottled water.

3 3 CONFIDENTIAL AND PROPRIETARY ©T HE W ATER I NITIATIVE ®, TWI ® Mission: DIAGNOSE targeted local conditions to customize point-of- drinking (POD) clean water solutions. DEVELOP APPROPRIATE and REPLICABLE WATER SOLUTIONS THAT SIGNIFICANTLY CONTRIBUTE TO COMMUNITY SUSTAINABLE DEVELOPMENT. DISTRIBUTE through LOCAL PARTNERS products which are AFFORDABLE, CONVENIENT, EFFECTIVE and TRUSTED Solutions. Become the TRUSTED SOURCE OF LOCAL WATER SOLUTIONS.

4 4 CONFIDENTIAL AND PROPRIETARY ©T HE W ATER I NITIATIVE ®, Contaminated water is the #1 health issue in the world. ArsenicPathogensFluoride * Map is illustration only Map of ‘The Big Three’ water contamination issues* 1.2 Billion people without access to safe water. 50% of hospital beds are occupied by people with a waterborne disease 80% of all global diseases are caused by contaminated drinking water (WHO) More people die from waterborne diseases than all communicable diseases combined More people have died of microbiological contaminants in water than all wars in recorded history

5 5 CONFIDENTIAL AND PROPRIETARY ©T HE W ATER I NITIATIVE ®, Related Diseases: Diabetes IIArsenosis Bladder Cancer Pancreatic Cancer 100s of millions of people affected Brain Damage and Dental Fluorosis Bone malformations, particularly in children Fluoride Effects: Arsenic Effects: #1 Global Carcinogen

6 6 CONFIDENTIAL AND PROPRIETARY ©T HE W ATER I NITIATIVE ®, Facts About Arsenic: Globally, over 250 MILLION people drink water with excessive arsenic. Over 30 MILLION in Mexico and over 50 MILLION in US. LEADING CARCINOGENIC linked to liver, kidney, skin, lung and bladder cancer. 1 IN 6 AMERICANS are “exposed to levels of arsenic that may cause CANCER over time”, Purdex, research paper released Oct. 8, 2013 Causes Diabetes II and Heart Disease. ODORLESS and TASTELESS ; nearly impossible to detect. BOILING water INEFFECTIVE against arsenic removal; worsens the problem by CONCENTRATING the resulting amount.

7 7 CONFIDENTIAL AND PROPRIETARY ©T HE W ATER I NITIATIVE ®, Water Usage: Consumption by Energy Source

9 9 CONFIDENTIAL AND PROPRIETARY ©T HE W ATER I NITIATIVE ®, th Century Solutions: Bottled Water NO REGULATION – INCONSISTENT quality everywhere 40% of Bottled Water taken FROM the TAP. Bottled Water is NOT TESTED for e. coli. PLASTIC DUMPING is environmental hazard. – In US less than 20% of water bottles recycled. Often 1,000 TIMES MORE EXPENSIVE than tap water. HEATING of plastic bottle contaminates water/ PBA – carcinogen. NATIONAL RESOURCES DEFENSE COUNCIL : – Approx. 1/3 of the tested waters (34 of 103 waters) VIOLATED an enforceable state standard or EXCEEDED microbiological-purity guidelines. – ¼ of waters tested (23 of 103 waters) VIOLATED applicable health LIMITS, most commonly for arsenic and man-made compounds.
