Midwest Energy Emissions Corp. to Present at the Energy, Utility and Environment 2014 Conference

WORTHINGTON, OH--(Marketwired - Jan 23, 2014) - Midwest Energy Emissions Corporation (OTCQB: MEEC) ("ME2C"), a company specializing in mercury capture compliance solutions that enable coal-burning power plants to meet new emissions standards, is pleased to announce that the company will present at the Energy, Utility, and Environment (EUEC) 2014 Conference (www.euec.com) on Monday February 3rd in Phoenix, AZ.

The 17th annual conference runs from February 3rd through 5th and offers an outstanding program with 500 expert speakers making presentations in state-of-art technologies and strategies impacting the electric utility industry.

Marcus Sylvester, VP of Sales and Marketing, will present in a session titled "HG Control and Activated Carbon" where he will detail the company's value proposition across multiple coal types, the superior performance of ME2C's leading edge technology versus competitors, and the ability to maintain critical compliance levels for coal power plants.

Midwest Energy Emissions Corporation 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 by April 16, 2015. ME2C's technology 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.

About Midwest Energy Emissions Corp. (ME2C): Midwest Energy Emissions Corporation delivers cost effective mercury capture technologies to power plants and other large industrial coal-burning units in the United States and Canada. The Company's proprietary technology allows customers to meet the new, highly restrictive standards the U.S. EPA has set for mercury emissions, in an effective and economical manner with the least disruption to their current equipment and on-going operations.
