WORTHINGTON, OH -- (Marketwired) -- 10/15/14 -- Midwest Energy Emissions Corp. (OTCQB: MEEC), a market leader in mercury emissions control systems for the coal-fired power industry, today announced that Bristol Capital has been retained to assist the Company in achieving greater visibility with institutional investors throughout North America and Europe.
"Midwest Energy Emissions Corp. has entered a point in its business cycle to be more proactive in communicating our business platform and financial performance to a much broader professional investment community," stated company CEO R. Alan Kelley. "Bristol has an outstanding reputation of helping smaller emerging clean technology companies reach both National and International institutional investors and we look forward to working with them in that regard. We anticipate this next year to be one of major growth and expansion for our company and we're excited to have partnered with Bristol to rapidly expand ME2C's presence within the global investor community."
About Midwest Energy Emissions Corp: Midwest Energy Emissions Corp. (ME2C) develops and employs patented and proprietary technologies to remove mercury from coal-fired power plant emissions. The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency's (EPA) Mercury and Air Toxic Standards (MATS) rule requires that all coal- and oil-fired power plants in the U.S., larger than 25 mega-watts, must remove roughly 90% of mercury from their emissions starting April 16, 2015. Midwest employs patented technology that has been shown to achieve mercury removal levels compliant with MATS at a significantly lower cost and with less operational impact than currently used methods, while preserving the marketability of fly-ash for beneficial use, a roughly $450mm industry annually. Management estimates that mercury emissions control is a recurring $2-$3 billion opportunity in the U.S. annually, with further international growth expected as countries adopt mercury emissions regulations under the United Nations Minimata Convention on Mercury.
