LEWIS CENTER, OH , March 12, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Midwest Energy Emissions Corp. (OTCQB: MEEC) ("ME2C" or the "Company"), a leader in mercury emissions control in North America, announced today that it has signed a multi-year contract renewal with a long-term customer. This renewal is expected to generate approximately $1M annually in product sales utilizing the Company’s patented, two-part Sorbent Enhancement Additive (SEA®) process.
“We are pleased to continue our relationship with this customer,” stated Richard MacPherson, President and CEO of ME2C. “Over the past several years, our mercury capture process has shown them consistent, effective, and low-cost removal of mercury, keeping them well below the MATS limit. This contract renewal, which includes a license to operate our patented SEA® process, represents this Utility’s understanding of our patented technologies position and recognition of its value to their plant operations and compliance.”
Throughout 2019, the Company expects to continue to drive shareholder value by securing additional contracts with USA-based and international customers currently in the Company’s pipeline. This will be combined with the continued support of Caldwell Cassady & Curry, P.C., previously announced as having been engaged to lead the Company’s efforts in licensing its patented SEA® technologies across the USA coal fleet.
MacPherson added, “Caldwell Cassady & Curry’s expertise and proven track record gives us great confidence that the interests of the Company and our shareholders will be protected from the unauthorized use of our patented SEA® technologies and installed processes.”
The Company's SEA® technologies help clients achieve and remain in full compliance with all applicable state and federal mercury compliance rules. Key advantages of the Company’s SEA® technologies include improved mercury oxidation and increased sorbent reactivity, improving mercury capture while using far less sorbent, and minimized ESP particulate by using lower amounts of sorbent overall as compared to all other approaches.
