Midwest Energy Emissions Corp. Announces Additional Commercial Contracting for Mercury Emissions Control

WORTHINGTON, OH--(Marketwired - Feb 25, 2014) - Midwest Energy Emissions Corporation (OTCQB: MEEC) ("ME2C") announced today that its proprietary mercury emissions control technology has been chosen by a large coal-power cooperative in the Southwest U.S.. The company estimates that this multi-year supply contract will generate revenues of $2 million annually starting in early 2015, and with initial system installation revenues in 2014 of $2.4 million.

The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency's (EPA) Mercury and Air Toxic Standards (MATS) rule requires that coal- and oil-fired power plants in the U.S. larger than 25 megawatts remove roughly 90% of mercury from their emissions beginning April 16, 2015, with limited extensions granted for compliance in April 2016. 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.

CEO Alan Kelley stated, "We are excited to announce that another electric power provider has chosen ME2C for removing mercury emissions to comply with MATS regulations. This further demonstrates the emergence of our best in class technology and the well-respected work that our team has put forth over the years."

Kelley continued, "We are very confident in the prospects of business growth over the coming months and years as utilities are required to comply with MATS. Our solution will reliably deliver on a value proposition unlike any other in the market today. With a critical focus on execution and service, we look forward to rapid adoption and significant revenue growth for our shareholders."
