RE: Claim Validation Results


Many companies have been self-certifying their claims based on their own internal reviews.Because some manufacturers have provided misleading information,consumers and retailers are beginning to ask for independent proof of these claims.Even when companies have independent third-party verification of specific claims,the claims can still be misleading and subject to 'greenwashing' charges if the claims are not relevant or meaningful.

Ethamax Inc. (Ethamax) markets the Ethamax- line of all-purpose fuel additives,and has been receiving positive feedback on the environmentalattributes of the Ethamax• Automotive Fuel Additive.Ethamax is interested in promoting the biodegradability of this product, but wants to provide the assurance that this environmental claim is accurate.

In this regard,Ethamax engaged TerraVeritas Validation Sciences Inc. to substantiate the Claim regarding biodegradation to ensure its accuracy,and to assess whether it avoids any egregious or flagrant errors with regards to the Federal Trade Commission's "Guides for the Use of Environmental Marketing Claims".

The TerraChoice Group is a family of companies with expertise in environmental standard setting, verification, and marketing. TerraVeritas, a wholly-owned subsidiary of TerraChoice, combines science-based environmental information with marketing savvy to provide enhanced environmental credibility for companies.

TerraVeritas performed the following activities for this claims validation process:

- Commissioned a physical biodegradation test to be run on a sample of the Ethamax Automobile Fuel Additive;

- Determined the appropriate biodegradation testing methodology to follow;

- Selected an appropriately accredited laboratory to perform the testing;

- Ensured appropriate chain of custody of the fuel additive sample to the testing laboratory;

- Evaluated the accuracy of the test results;

- Determined the life-cycle based and materially important impact areas for the Product category;

- Assessed whether the Claim is defensible, relevant and specific enough to be appropriately interpreted and understood by consumers; and

- Assessed if the Claim avoided egregious or flagrant errors with regards to the requirements of the FederalTrade Commission's "Guides for the Use of Environmental Marketing Claims".


TerraVeritas has successfully validated the following Claim language for the Ethamax"' Automotive Fuel Additives listed on page two of this letter.

"This automotive fuel additive is biodegradable as per testing results from ASTM D 5864-05.
(Achieved 80.25% aerobic aquatic biodegradation over a 16 day period.
Test control- canota oil- achieved 88.00% biodegradation.
