AMENDED AND RESTATED 12.5% SENIOR, SUBORDINATED, UNSECURED PROMISSORY NOTE
Due June 1, 2024
THIS AMENDED AND RESTATED 12.5% SENIOR, SUBORDINATED, UNSECURED PROMISSORY NOTE is one of a series of duly authorized and validly issued Amended and Restated 12.5% Senior, Subordinated, Unsecured Promissory Notes of GlyEco, Inc., a Nevada corporation (the “Company”), having its principal place of business at 1620 1st Ave S, Nitro, WV 25143 and with a mailing address at PO Box 387, Institute, West Virginia 25112, designated as its Amended and Restated 12.5% Senior, Subordinated, Unsecured Promissory Note due June 1, 2024 (this Amended and Restated 12.5% Senior, Subordinated, Unsecured Promissory Note, the “Note” and, collectively with the other Notes of such series, the “Notes”).
At various times, the Company had issued to certain noteholders 10% Senior, Unsecured Promissory Notes (individually, an “Original Note” and collectively, the “Original Notes”). Subsequent to the issuance of the Original Notes, the Company has entered into negotiations with NFS Leasing, Inc. (“NFS”) regarding an equipment finance transaction and anticipates entering into one or more agreements with NFS. As an inducement to NFS to enter into the equipment finance transaction and accompanying agreements, including, without limitation a royalty agreement and a common stock purchase warrant (collectively, the “Transaction Documents”), the original noteholders have agreed to amend and restate the Original Notes, by, among other things, changing the Principal Amount under the Original Note to reflect the outstanding principal amount and accrued but unpaid interest as of the date of the Note, and by subordinating their rights to the rights of NFS. The Notes supersede and replace the Original Notes in their entireties and extinguish any claims for alleged defaults or other breaches under the Original Notes. Each Holder has returned its Original Note to the Company for cancellation prior to the date hereof. In partial consideration of the above agreements by each Holder of the Original Notes, the Company is issuing to each such Holder a common stock purchase warrant.
FOR VALUE RECEIVED, the Company promises to pay to WYNNEFIELD SMALL CAP VALUE, L.P. or its registered assigns (the “Holder”), or shall have paid pursuant to the terms hereunder, the principal sum of Eight Hundred Sixty-Three Thousand, Five Hundred Forty-One and 60/100 Dollars ($863,541.60) on June 1, 2024 (the “Maturity Date”) or such earlier date as this Note is required or permitted to be repaid as provided hereunder, and to pay interest to the Holder on the then outstanding principal amount of this Note in accordance with the provisions hereof.

Each party hereto hereby irrevocably submits to the exclusive jurisdiction of the New York Courts for the adjudication of any dispute hereunder or in connection herewith or with any transaction contemplated hereby or discussed herein (including with respect to the enforcement of any of the Transaction Documents), and hereby irrevocably waives, and agrees not to assert in any suit, action or proceeding, any claim that it is not personally subject to the jurisdiction of such New York Courts, or such New York Courts are improper or inconvenient venue for such proceeding.

No waiver of any default with respect to any provision, condition or requirement of this Agreement shall be deemed to be a continuing waiver in the future or a waiver of any subsequent default or a waiver of any other provision, condition or requirement hereof, nor shall any delay or omission of any party to exercise any right hereunder in any manner impair the exercise of any such right.
f) Severability. If any provision of this Note is invalid, illegal or unenforceable, the balance of this Note shall remain in effect, and if any provision is inapplicable to any Person or circumstance, it shall nevertheless remain applicable to all other Persons and circumstances. If it shall be found that any interest or other amount deemed interest due hereunder violates the applicable law governing usury, the applicable rate of interest due hereunder shall automatically be lowered to equal the maximum rate of interest permitted under applicable law. The Company covenants (to the extent that it may lawfully do so) that it shall not at any time insist upon, plead, or in any manner whatsoever claim or take the benefit or advantage of, any stay, extension or usury law or other law which would prohibit or forgive the Company from paying all or any portion of the principal of or interest on this Note as contemplated herein, wherever enacted, now or at any time hereafter in force, or which may affect the covenants or the performance of this Note, and the Company (to the extent it may lawfully do so) hereby expressly waives all benefits or advantage of any such law, and covenants that it will not, by resort to any such law, hinder, delay or impede the execution of any power herein granted to the Holder, but will suffer and permit the execution of every such power as though no such law has been enacted.
g) Remedies, Characterizations, Other Obligations, Breaches and Injunctive Relief. The remedies provided in this Note shall be cumulative and in addition to all other remedies available under this Note and any of the other Transaction Documents at law or in equity (including a decree of specific performance and/or other injunctive relief), and nothing herein shall limit the Holder’s right to pursue actual and consequential damages for any failure by the Company to comply with the terms of this Note. The Company covenants to the Holder that there shall be no characterization concerning this instrument other than as expressly provided herein. Amounts set forth or provided for herein with respect to payments and the like (and the computation thereof) shall be the amounts to be received by the Holder and shall not, except as expressly provided herein, be subject to any other obligation of the Company (or the performance thereof). The Company acknowledges that a breach by it of its obligations hereunder will cause irreparable harm to the Holder and that the remedy at law for any such breach may be inadequate. The Company therefore agrees that, in the event of any such breach or threatened breach, the Holder shall be entitled, in addition to all other available remedies, to an injunction restraining any such breach or any such threatened breach, without the necessity of showing economic loss and without any bond or other security being required. The Company shall provide all information and documentation to the Holder that is requested by the Holder to enable the Holder to confirm the Company’s compliance with the terms and conditions of this Note.

j) Use of Proceeds. The Company shall use the net proceeds as follows: working capital and general corporate purposes.
k) Subordination. Notwithstanding anything to the contrary contained in this Note or in any other document between the Company and the Holder, each of the Company and the Holder acknowledges and agrees that the Company’s obligation to make any payments hereunder and to perform any of its other obligations under this Note are second and subordinate to the rights of NFS under the Transaction Documents as they may be amended from time to time. To this end, until the Company has satisfied its obligations in full to NFS, and NFS has no obligation to make any further advances to the Company, the Holder shall not exercise or pursue any of its remedies hereunder, whether at law or in equity, and each of the Company and the Holder shall take such further action and to execute and deliver such additional agreements as NFS may, from time to time, reasonably request. In addition to the foregoing, the Maturity Date shall be automatically extended until the Company has satisfied its obligations in full to NFS, and NFS has no obligation to make any further advances to the Company, if such conditions do not exist on the stated Maturity Date.
l) Third Party Beneficiary. NFS is a third-party beneficiary to this Note and, after the occurrence and continuance of an uncured Event of Default, or upon any material breach of a covenant or other provision contained herein for the benefit of NFS, is entitled to the rights and benefits applicable to it hereunder and may enforce the provisions hereof as if it were a party hereto.
m) Costs. In the event a party institutes any legal suit, action, or proceeding against the other party to obtain any remedy arising out of or relating to this Note, and such party prevails with respect to any claim in such suit, action, or proceeding, the prevailing party shall be entitled to seek approval from the applicable tribunal to pay, in addition to all other remedies to which such prevailing may be entitled, the costs and expenses incurred by the prevailing party in conducting the suit, action, or proceeding, including reasonable and documented attorneys' fees and actually incurred expenses, court costs, and other expenses.
