  • Midwest Energy Emissions Corp. (MEEC) SEA Technology Featured In Energy-Tech Magazine 0 comments

    Midwest Energy Emissions Corp. (OTCQB:MEEC) SEA Technology Featured in Energy-Tech Magazine

    Midwest Energy Emissions Corp. today announced that its Sorbent Enhancing (NYSEARCA:SEA) Technology is being featured in the October edition of Energy-Tech Magazine. The company's SEA Technology is a product line of sorbent enhancement additives that work together with proprietary sorbents to more economically capture mercury than other mercury removal methods used today. The author of the feature article, John Pavlish, is the lead architect of the development of the SEA™ technology, as Senior Research Director at the Energy & Environmental Research Center, at which the Midwest Energy Emissions technology was invented and patented.

    Midwest Energy CEO Alan Kelley commented, "This article in Energy-Tech Magazine fully articulates the basic functionality of the ME2C technology, and how it was developed to focus on all elements at work at a power plant when working to capture mercury. This technology was developed over 20 years, carefully studying and manipulating all available tools, solely to find the most efficient, cost-effective manner to capture mercury. In the world-class labs at the EERC, many approaches to capturing mercury were tested until our SEA™ technology proved to be best in class, and best in the world."

    Kelley elaborated, "With 31 highly successful demonstrations of our technology completed on large, operating power plants - where our technology has always achieved all of the testing goals - time and again we have bested the competition in head-to-head studies. Our company is now taking these demonstrations to meaningful, long-term contracts with our clients."

    Kelley concluded, "We are set to deliver to the coal-fired power industry a patented solution that is best in class, and will seamlessly enable clients to attain compliance with MATS, the regulation that mandates utilities capture nearly 90% of their mercury emissions. We offer the industry a proven approach that greatly reduces balance of plant effects, dramatically lowering the cost of mercury capture, and preserving the ability to market their fly-ash for beneficial use, which is estimated at a $450mm annual industry that needs a low-carbon approach such as ours. This complete Mercury Capture Program has been proven across all coal types and a broad array of system designs in the market today. "

    In its standards regarding mercury removal, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency's (EPA) 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. The agency estimates the cost of moves toward compliance to be around $9.6 billion annually. Midwest Energy Emission Corp.'s technology has been shown to achieve these mercury levels required by the EPA's Mercury and Air Toxic Standards at much lower input costs and with much less company operational disruption than other available mercury removal methods provide.
