The proceedings, issued in the High Court of Justice, allege infringement of
Neuftec's European patent.

Neuftec Issues Patent Infringement Proceedings in the UK Against Oxonica

ROSEAU, Commonwealth of Dominica | Posted on June 12th, 2008

The proceedings seek an injunction against Oxonica as well as damages in
relation to product already sold and delivery up or destruction of all
articles that would infringe Neuftec's European patent.


Oxonica and its legal advisors have previously made statements on at
least two occasions that they have no intention of dealing with products that
infringe any of Neuftec's issued patents. However, despite these statements
it is with regret that this is the second time, to the best of Neuftec's
knowledge, that Oxonica has infringed its granted patents.


The first infringement came in May 2007 when it came to Neuftec's
knowledge that Oxonica infringed the claims of Neuftec's Australian patent by
collecting a shipment of Envirox without the knowledge, consent or
authorization of Neuftec. This stock is estimated by Neuftec to have a resale
value of approximately US$1.8 million and cannot be used or sold without
Neuftec's permission. It has been stored in a warehouse in Australia since
March 2007.


The latest alleged infringement occurred when Oxonica shipped Envirox
formulations to Italy for use in Italian Government laboratory emission
testing.


Neuftec is continuing it's investigations with customers, distributors &
agents of Oxonica to determine the extent of the alleged infringement


Neuftec is represented in these proceedings by Watson, Farley & Williams
LLP & Mr. Mark Platts-Mills QC of 8 New Square, London.

About Neuftec Limited
Neuftec is a research & development company that owns patents in the fuel
catalyst technology sector used in the production of the first version of
EnviroxTM (2001-2007) that was manufactured by Advanced Nanotechnology
("ANO") of Australia under a manufacturing licence granted by Oxonica with
authorization from Neuftec.


On 29 February 2008, IP Australia issued a re-examination report in
respect of Neuftec's Australian patent. The patent had been issued in 2006
with 10 claims. In the re-examination report, IP Australia confirmed the
patentability of the 10 claims as originally granted in 2006 in
re-examination proceedings initiated by Oxonica.
