THIS DEBENTURE is a duly authorized issued debenture of Integrated Environmental Technologies, Ltd., a corporation organized under the laws of the State of Delaware and having a principal place of business at 4235 Commerce Street Little River, South Carolina 29566 (the “Company”), designated as its 10% Convertible Debentures, due January 2, 2009 (the “Debentures”), in an aggregate principal amount of $1,000,000.
FOR VALUE RECEIVED, the Company promises to pay to LJ Tichacek, or registered assigns (the “Holder”), the principal sum of Twenty-five Thousand USD ($25,000), on or prior to January 2, 2009 or such earlier date as the Debentures are required to be repaid as provided hereunder (the “Maturity Date”) and to pay interest to the Holder on the principal sum at the rate of 10% per annum, payable semi-annually in arrears commencing July 1, 2006, but in no event later than the earlier to occur of a Conversion Date (as defined in Section 4(a)(i)) for such principal amount) or the Maturity Date. Interest shall accrue daily commencing on the Original Issue Date (as defined in Section 6) until payment in full of the principal sum, together with all accrued and unpaid interest and other amounts which may become due hereunder, has been made. Interest shall be calculated on the basis of a 365-day year and for the actual number of days elapsed. Interest hereunder will be paid to the Person (as defined in Section 6) in whose name this Debenture (or one or more predecessor Debentures) is registered on the records of the Company regarding registration and transfers of the Debentures (the “Debenture Register”). All overdue, accrued and unpaid interest and other amounts due hereunder shall bear interest at the rate of 12% per annum (to accrue daily) from the date such interest is due hereunder through and including the date of payment. The principal of, and interest on, this Debenture are payable in such coin or currency of the United States of America as at the time of payment is legal tender for payment of public and private debts, at the address of the Holder last appearing on the Debenture Register, except that the principal amount (but not interest) may, at the Company’s option, be paid in shares of Common Stock (as defined in Section 6) calculated based upon the Conversion Price (as defined below) on the date such principal amount is due. All amounts due hereunder other than such interest shall be paid in cash. Notwithstanding anything to the contrary contained herein, the Company may not issue shares of Common Stock in payment of the principal amount if: (i) the number of shares of Common Stock at the time authorized, unissued and unreserved for all purposes, or held as treasury stock, is insufficient to pay principal hereunder in shares of Common Stock; or (ii) such shares are not listed or quoted on the National Association of Securities Dealers, Inc. (“NASD”) Over-the-Counter Bulletin Board (“OTCBB”) and any other exchange or market on which the Common Stock is then listed or quoted.
This Debenture is subject to the following additional provisions:
Section 1. This Debenture is exchangeable for an equal aggregate principal amount of Debentures of different authorized denominations, as requested by the Holder surrendering the same but shall not be issuable in denominations of less than integral multiplies of Five Hundred Dollars ($500.00) unless such amount represents the full principal balance of Debentures outstanding to such Holder. No service charge will be made for such registration of transfer or exchange.
Section 2. This Debenture has been issued subject to certain investment representations of the original Holder set forth in the Purchase Agreement and may be transferred or exchanged only in compliance with the Purchase Agreement.

Section 4. Principal Conversion.
(a) This Debenture shall be convertible into shares of Common Stock at the option of the Holder in whole or in part at any time and from time to time after the Original Issue Date. The number of shares of Common Stock as shall be issuable upon a conversion hereunder shall be determined by dividing the outstanding principal amount of this Debenture by $0.40 (the “Conversion Price”), each as subject to adjustment as provided hereunder. The Holder shall effect conversions by surrendering the Debentures (or such portions thereof) to be converted, together with the form of conversion notice attached hereto as Exhibit A-A (a “Conversion Notice”) to the Company. Each Conversion Notice shall specify the principal amount of Debentures to be converted and the date on which such conversion is to be effected, which date may not be prior to the date such Conversion Notice is deemed to have been delivered hereunder (a “Conversion Date”). If no Conversion Date is specified in a Conversion Notice, the Conversion Date shall be the date that such Conversion Notice is deemed delivered hereunder. Subject to Section 4(b) hereof and Section 3.8 of the Purchase Agreement, each Conversion Notice, once given, shall be irrevocable. If the Holder is converting less than all of the principal amount represented by the Debenture(s) tendered by the Holder with the Conversion Notice, or if a conversion hereunder cannot be effected in full for any reason, the Company shall honor such conversion to the extent permissible hereunder and shall promptly deliver to such Holder (in the manner and within the time set forth in Section 4(b)) a new Debenture for such principal amount as has not been converted.
(b) Not later than three Trading Days after the Conversion Date, the Company will deliver or cause to be delivered to the Holder (i) a certificate or certificates which shall bear restrictive legends and trading restrictions (including those required by Section 3.1(b) of the Purchase Agreement) representing the number of shares of the Common Stock being acquired upon the conversion of Debentures (subject to reduction pursuant to Section 3.8 of the Purchase Agreement), (ii) Debentures in a principal amount equal to the principal amount of Debentures not converted; (iii) a bank check in the amount of all accrued and unpaid interest (if the Company has elected to pay accrued interest in cash), together with all other amounts then due and payable in accordance with the terms hereof, in respect of Debentures tendered for conversion, and (iv) if the Company has elected and is permitted hereunder to pay accrued interest in shares of the restricted Common Stock, certificates, which shall bear restrictive legends and be subject to trading restrictions, representing such number of shares of the Common Stock as equals such interest divided by the Conversion Price; provided, however, that the Company shall not be obligated to issue certificates evidencing the shares of the Common Stock issuable upon conversion of the principal amount of Debentures until Debentures are delivered for conversion to the Company or the Holder notifies the Company that such Debenture has been mutilated, lost, stolen or destroyed and complies with Section 9 hereof. If in the case of any Conversion Notice such certificate or certificates, including for purposes hereof, any shares of the Common Stock to be issued on the Conversion Date on account of accrued but unpaid interest hereunder, are not delivered to or as directed by the Holder by the fourth Trading Day after a Conversion Date, the Holder shall be entitled by written notice to the Company at any time on or before its receipt of such certificate or certificates thereafter, to rescind such conversion (whether subject to a Holder or a Company Conversion Notice), in which event the Company shall immediately return the Debentures tendered for conversion. If the Company fails to deliver to the Holder such certificate or certificates pursuant to this Section, including for purposes hereof, any shares of the Common Stock to be issued on the Conversion Date on account of accrued but unpaid interest hereunder, prior to the fourth Trading Day after the Conversion Date, the Company shall pay to such Holder, in cash, as liquidated damages and not as a penalty, $100 for each day thereafter until the Company delivers such certificates (such amount shall also be due for each Trading Day after the date that the Holder may rescind such conversion until such date as the Holder shall have received the return of the principal amount of Debentures relating to such rescission).
(c) (i) The conversion price (the “Conversion Price”) in effect on any Conversion Date shall be forty cents $0.40.
(ii) If the Company, at any time while any Debentures are outstanding, (a) shall pay a stock dividend or otherwise make a distribution or distributions on shares of its Common Stock or any other equity or equity equivalent securities payable in shares of the Common Stock, (b) subdivide outstanding shares of the Common Stock into a larger number of shares, (c) combine outstanding shares of the Common Stock into a smaller number of shares, or (d) issue by reclassification of shares of the Common Stock any shares of capital stock of the Company, the Conversion Price shall be multiplied by a fraction of which the numerator shall be the number of shares of the Common Stock (excluding treasury shares, if any) outstanding before such event and of which the denominator shall be the number of shares of the Common Stock outstanding after such event. Any adjustment made pursuant to this Section shall become effective immediately after the record date for the determination of stockholders entitled to receive such dividend or distribution and shall become effective immediately after the effective date in the case of a subdivision, combination or reclassification.
(iii) In case of any reclassification of the Common Stock or any compulsory share exchange pursuant to which the Common Stock is converted into other securities, cash or property, the Holder of this Debenture shall have the right thereafter to, at its option, (A) convert the then outstanding principal amount, together with all accrued but unpaid interest and any other amounts then owing hereunder in respect of this Debenture only into the shares of stock and other securities, cash and property receivable upon or deemed to be held by holders of the Common Stock following such reclassification or share exchange, and the Holders of the Debentures shall be entitled upon such event to receive such amount of securities, cash or property as the shares of the Common Stock of the Company into which the then outstanding principal amount, together with all accrued but unpaid interest and any other amounts then owing hereunder in respect of this Debenture could have been converted immediately prior to such reclassification or share exchange would have been entitled or (B) require the Company to prepay, from funds legally available therefor at the time of such prepayment, the aggregate of its outstanding principal amount of Debentures, plus all interest and other amounts due and payable thereon, at a price determined in accordance with Section 3(b). The entire prepayment price shall be paid in cash. This provision shall similarly apply to successive reclassifications or share exchanges.
(iv) All calculations under this Section 4 shall be made to the nearest cent or the nearest 1/100th of a share, as the case may be.
(iii) Whenever the Conversion Price is adjusted pursuant to any of Section 4(c), the Company shall promptly mail to each Holder of Debentures a notice setting forth the Initial Conversion Price after such adjustment and setting forth a brief statement of the facts requiring such adjustment.
(d) The Company covenants that it will at all times reserve and keep available out of its authorized and unissued shares of the Common Stock solely for the purpose of issuance upon conversion of the Debentures and payment of interest on the Debentures, each as herein provided, free from preemptive rights or any other actual contingent purchase rights of persons other than the Holders, not less than such number of shares of the Common Stock as shall (subject to any additional requirements of the Company as to reservation of such shares set forth in the Purchase Agreement) be issuable (taking into account the adjustments and restrictions of Section 4(c)) upon the conversion of the outstanding principal amount of the Debentures and payment of interest hereunder. The Company covenants that all shares of the Common Stock that shall be so issuable shall, upon issue, be duly and validly authorized, issued and fully paid, nonassessable.
(e) Upon a conversion hereunder the Company shall not be required to issue stock certificates representing fractions of shares of the Common Stock, but may if otherwise permitted, make a cash payment in respect of any final fraction of a share based on the Per Share Market Value at such time. If the Company elects not, or is unable, to make such a cash payment, the holder shall be entitled to receive, in lieu of the final fraction of a share, one whole share of Common Stock.
(f) The issuance of certificates for shares of the Common Stock on conversion of the Debentures shall be made without charge to the Holders thereof for any documentary stamp or similar taxes that may be payable in respect of the issue or delivery of such certificate, provided that the Company shall not be required to pay any tax that may be payable in respect of any transfer involved in the issuance and delivery of any such certificate upon conversion in a name other than that of the Holder of such Debentures so converted and the Company shall not be required to issue or deliver such certificates unless or until the person or persons requesting the issuance thereof shall have paid to the Company the amount of such tax or shall have established to the satisfaction of the Company that such tax has been paid.
(g) Any and all notices or other communications or deliveries to be provided by the Holders of the Debentures hereunder, including, without limitation, any Conversion Notice, shall be in writing and delivered personally, by facsimile, sent by a nationally recognized overnight courier service or sent by certified or registered mail, postage prepaid, addressed to the Company, at 4235 Commerce Street, Little River, South Carolina 29566 (facsimile number (843) 390-3900), attention Chief Executive Officer, or such other address or facsimile number as the Company may specify for such purposes by notice to the Holders delivered in accordance with this Section. Any and all notices or other communications or deliveries to be provided by the Company hereunder shall be in writing and delivered personally, by facsimile, sent by a nationally recognized overnight courier service or sent by certified or registered mail, postage prepaid, addressed to each Holder of the Debentures at the facsimile telephone number or address of such Holder appearing on the books of the Company, or if no such facsimile telephone number or address appears, at the principal place of business of the holder. Any notice or other communication or deliveries hereunder shall be deemed given and effective on the earliest of (i) the date of transmission, if such notice or communication is delivered via facsimile at the facsimile telephone number specified in this Section prior to 6:00 p.m. (Eastern Standard time), (ii) the date after the date of transmission, if such notice or communication is delivered via facsimile at the facsimile telephone number specified in this Section later than 6:00 p.m. (Eastern Standard time) on any date and earlier than 11:59 p.m. (Eastern Standard time) on such date, (iii) four days after deposit in the United States mail, (iv) the Business Day following the date of mailing, if sent by nationally recognized overnight courier service, or (v) upon actual receipt by the party to whom such notice is required to be given.

The Company has agreed to grant each Purchaser “piggy-back” registration rights to be included in the Company’s next registration statement for the registration of shares under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended (excluding registration statements on Form S-8 and underwritten or other registration statements where the financier specifically forbids the piggy-back of Purchasers’ shares).

Any such prepayment by the Company shall be in cash and shall be free of any claim of subordination.

(b) If any portion of the Optional Prepayment Price shall not be paid by the Company by the Optional Prepayment Date, the Optional Prepayment Price shall be increased by 10% per annum (to accrue daily) until paid (which amount shall be paid as liquidated damages and not as a penalty). In addition, if any portion of the optional Prepayment Price remains unpaid through the expiration of the Optional Prepayment Date, the Holder subject to such prepayment may elect by written notice to the Company to either (i) demand conversion in accordance with the formula and the time period therefor set forth in Section 4 of any portion of the principal amount of Debentures for which the Optional Prepayment Price, plus accrued liquidated damages thereof, has not been paid in full (the “Unpaid Prepayment Principal Amount”), in which event the applicable Per Share Market Value shall be the lower of the Per Share Market Value calculated on the Optional Prepayment Date and the Per Share Market Value as of the Holder’s written demand for conversion, or (ii) invalidate ab initio such optional redemption, notwithstanding anything herein contained to the contrary. If the Holder elects option (i) above, the Company shall within three (3) Trading Days of such election is deemed delivered hereunder to the Holder the shares of Common Stock issuable upon conversion of the Unpaid Prepayment Amount subject to such conversion demand and otherwise perform its obligations hereunder with respect thereto; or, if the Holder elects option (ii) above, the Company shall promptly, and in any event not later than three Trading Days from receipt of notice of such election, return to the Holder new Debentures for the full Unpaid Prepayment Principal Amount.

(c) The “Optional Prepayment Price” for any Debentures shall be as follows:
if the Debentures are called from July 1, 2006 through January 1, 2007, the Optional Prepayment Price shall be 105% of the principal amount of the Debentures plus all other amounts, expenses, costs and liquidated damages due in respect of such principal amount;
