  • Midwest Energy Emissions Corp. (MEEC) In Solid Position To Win With Superior Mercury Removal Technology, Says Research Analyst 0 comments
    Nov 19, 2013 5:38 PM | about stocks: MEEC

    Midwest Energy Emissions' mercury capture technologies are used to power plants and other large industrial coal-burning units in North America, ensuring that these companies meet industry regulations by adequately reducing mercury smokestack emissions.

    As noted by a recent article by research analyst Matt Levy, this technology has positioned Midwest Energy to benefit from Environmental Protection Agency regulations set to go into effect in April 2015. The beefed-up standards will require that oil and coal plants cut mercury emissions by a staggering 90 percent, leaving plant operators with only a few solutions to meet this mandate.

    Levy describes previous solutions, namely the Scrubber & SCR and Powered Activated Carbon of Brominated Activated Carbon solutions, which are costly and deliver subpar reduction rates (approximately 70 percent or less, according to Levy). Midwest Emissions, however, has developed a breakthrough platform eliminating these issues.

    "In an effort to create a platform that doesn't suffer from the problems associated with the previously discussed solutions, Midwest Energy Emissions Corp. developed SEA (Sorbent Enhancing Additive) technology. … The breakthrough technology is especially effective at reducing mercury levels greater than 90 percent. That is vastly superior to the new emissions regulations laid out by the EPA. Unlike the PAC or BAC solution, SEA technology will maintain fly-ash salability, which currently has an annual market size of roughly $450 million. In addition, reducing mercury levels with SEA technology can typically save companies 40 percent of what they would have to spend when utilizing BAC or PAC," writes Levy.

    Midwest Energy has an impressive patent portfolio, which provides opportunity for the company to seize a hefty share of the annual mercury removal market, estimated to reach $9.6 billion.

    "But even if an investor were to be extremely conservative and assume the company would only capture 5 percent, the total annual sales for Midwest Energy would total approximately $480 million," pens Levy. "Given that the company's current market capitalization is just $25 million, investors stand to gain significantly over the next several years."

    In conclusion, the article also notes Midwest Energy's recent quarterly results, in which the company achieved revenue growth of 230 percent vs. the same quarter last year and halved its operating loss - a positive pattern that Levy said he expects to "improve drastically over the years to come."
