  • Midwest Energy Emissions Corp. (MEEC) Prepared To Capitalize On Effects Of Global Mercury Emission Regulations 0 comments
    Dec 9, 2013 6:13 PM | about stocks: MEEC

    Mercury exists in the water, air and soil, taking on several different forms. Coal-burning power plants are the leading human-caused source of mercury emissions into the air, and though it is a naturally occurring element, high levels of mercury emissions pose significant health threats to the nation's air, water and food sources.

    In an effort to drastically curb mercury pollution and impacts, the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) in 2010 began working to set emission standards for power plants under the Clean Air Act, and by 2011 issued its Mercury and Air Toxics Standards (MATS) for power plants.

    As coal power plants raced to find solutions to efficiently and cost-effectively reduce their mercury emissions, they were faced with a challenge in finding technologies that fit both variables.

    Midwest Energy Emissions, however, has emerged as a viable source of mercury capture solutions utilizing the company's patented SEA™ technology, an effective and economically feasible solution to achieve mercury emissions capture rates of more than 90 percent in coal-fired power plants.

    The company also offers services complementary to the technology in order to achieve optimal capture rates for its clients:

    •Emissions testing for mercury and other trace metals, ensuring compliance with regulatory limits

    •Optimal design of the injection scheme and appropriate equipment layout and installation

    •Optimization of SEA™ sorbent technologies for a customized low-cost plan for each unit

    •Access to industry-leading experts and researchers at the EERC

    •Ongoing scientific support for combustion issues and questions related to trace metals, as operations and regulations change

    Existing power plants generally have through 2015 to comply with MATS, and Midwest Energy anticipates that in the near term, many utilities will seek out and request demonstrations of mercury capture technologies that best suit their facility and budgets.

    The company believes it has positioned itself as an attractive and efficient solution to this call, capable of servicing coal-fired power plants and utilities in the U.S. and Canada. The company also plans to partake in future expansion into Europe and China as mercury emission regulations continue to spread.
