LEWIS CENTER, OH / ACCESSWIRE / April 2, 2015 / Midwest Energy Emissions Corp. (OTCQB:MEEC) ("ME2C"), a leader in mercury emissions control for coal-fired power plants, announces today that it has completed the field-testing and commercial launch of its proprietary Mobile Emissions-Analysis Lab. The Lab is part of ME2C's Emissions Services line, focused on delivering the most comprehensive, holistic suite of mercury emissions solutions to coal power utilities.
President and CEO Richard MacPherson stated, "One of the common traits of great technology companies is the ability and dedication to innovate, in order to offer customers cutting edge products and services. ME2C continues to invest heavily into research and development for our patented SEA Technology, working to broaden our patent-portfolio, while developing more robust and effective products. Key to this all is delivering customer service that greatly reduces a customer's risk of achieving compliance with mercury emissions regulations. The Emissions Services component of our mercury control program now combines our exceptional team of experts in emissions control, and mercury measurement and analysis, with the most modern system available for on-site mercury emissions analysis."
Chief Technical Officer John Pavlish commented "Our Mobile Emissions-Analysis Lab now allows ME2C to bring our expertise right to the power plant, in real-time, where we are able to fully fuse our science and engineering approach to mercury emissions control. By gathering on-site mercury measurements, we can quickly adapt to different plant configurations and coal types, better understanding plant-specific operations, while providing critical oversight to the power plant's own testing equipment, ensuring maximum test and measure efficacy. We are also able to measure and monitor other gas components, including CO2, CO, So2, O2, NOx, as well as our own product observations, allowing us to provide advanced customized and optimized products and solutions, while also staying on top of an increasingly regulated emissions environment for our customer."

Midwest Energy Emissions Corp. develops and employs patented and proprietary technologies to remove mercury from coal-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. ME2C 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 ability for customers to recycle and sell fly-ash for beneficial use.
