     This Agreement (“ Agreement ”)is made as of this 15 th day of October, 2010 (the “ Effective Date ”), by
and between Converted Organics Inc. (“ COIN ”), a Delaware corporation having offices at 7A Commercial

                                                     RECITALS
     A. Lessor and COIN entered into an Agreement of Lease dated as of June 2, 2006 (as amended from time 
to time (the “ Lease ”). On or about February 1, 2007, COIN entered into an Assignment and Assumption 
Agreement pursuant to which COIN assigned all of its rights, title and interest, duties, obligations, responsibilities
and liabilities to and under the Lease to Woodbridge (the “ Assignment and Assumption Agreement ”).
Simultaneous with such assignment, COIN guaranteed the obligations of Woodbridge under the Lease (the “ 
Guaranty ”).
     B. Woodbridge has defaulted in the payment of the rent due under the Lease. The rent that would have been 
paid by Woodbridge for the unexpired term of the Lease absent its termination as provided herein would be
approximately Nine Million One Hundred Six Thousand Five Hundred Eight and 90/100 ($9,106,508.90)
Dollars (the “ Future Rent ”). Neither Woodbridge nor COIN has the financial ability at this time to pay any
material part of the amount due and owing to the Lessor.
     C. Subject to the terms and conditions of this agreement and the occurrence of the Settlement Date (defined 
below), the Lessor and Woodbridge have agreed to terminate the Lease, and Woodbridge has agreed to
surrender possession of the Leased Premises. Further, the parties have agreed that Woodbridge shall transfer
certain personal property located at the Leased Premises and COIN shall issue certain shares of stock in
satisfaction of certain claims of the Lessor under the Lease arising from (i) damages to a tipping floor, to the 
extent not actually reimbursed by insurance carried by Woodbridge, (ii) unpaid sewer and trash removal charges 
through August 3, 2010, (iii) unpaid rent due Lessor for periods prior to termination of the Lease; (iv) certain 
costs and expenses incurred by Lessor in connection with existing litigation entitled Lefcourt Associates et al. v.
Converted Organics of Woodbridge (the “ Lefcourt Litigation ”) alleging damage from odors emanating from
the Leased Premises (“ Litigation Expenses ”), (v) damages that may result from the condition of the premises 
at the time of surrender, and (vi) the required removal and disposal of abandoned inventory and materials 
(collectively the “ Immediate Damages ”). It is agreed that the Immediate Damages do not include Lessor’s
claims under any insurance policy assigned to Lessor by Woodbridge and any claims under any insurance
agreement where Lessor is named as an additional insured or loss payee. Lessor has agreed to enter into a
certain Claims Purchase Agreement (the “ CPA ”) with American Capital Management, LLC (“ American
Capital ”) whereby Lessor will sell and assign its rights to the Future Rent and all other remaining claims other
than the Immediate Damages, those claims under any insurance policy assigned to Lessor by Woodbridge and
any claims under any insurance agreement where Lessor is named as an additional insured or loss payee

             “accredited investor” as defined in Rule 501(a) under the Act. Lessor has such knowledge,
