  • Midwest Energy Emissions Corp. (MEEC) Ready For Last Upcoming MATS Component 0 comments
    Feb 6, 2014 2:41 PM | about stocks: MEEC

    Midwest Energy Emissions Corp. (ME2C) provides customer-centric mercury capture solutions based on their patented SEA™ technology, using a combination of materials tailored and formulated specifically to customers' coal-fired units. The SEATM technology is an effective and economically sound solution to achieving mercury emissions capture rates of over 90% in coal-fired power plants, and is guaranteed to maintain compliance with the highly restrictive new EPA requirements on Mercury smokestack emissions.

    In April 2015, the final component of the Clean Air Act of 1990, MATS (Mercury and Air Toxic Standard), becomes effective. The MATS rule requires that all U.S. based coal and oil fired electric power plants generating 25MW and higher to reduce mercury emissions by approximately 90%. Currently, there are 31 U.S. states that have no removal requirements and 17 U.S. states which employ some form of reduction rules, while Canada currently requires 70% reductions. Three of the four major air pollutants, (NOx, SOx and particulates) have already become regulated as part of the Clean Air Act of 1990.

    ME2C uses a proprietary blend technology, called SEA™ (Sorbent Enhancing Additive), which was developed at the University of North Dakota's Energy and Environmental Research Center. SEA™ allows for greater than 90% mercury removal, meeting or surpassing the new emissions regulations. It is the most economical technology of its kind, typically less than BAC (Brominated Activated Carbon) or PAC (Powdered Activated Carbon), and has the least balance-of-plant (BoP) disruptions.

    The SEA™ product line is specifically tailored for each application to match a customer's fuel type and boiler configuration for optimal results. This high-grade sorbent enhancement additive, which is injected into the boiler in minimal amounts, works in tandem with proprietary sorbents to insure maximum mercury capture with superior economics compared to typical mercury removal techniques in use today. The tailored approach has the added advantage of substantially reducing the impact of mercury capture on the balance-of-plant systems and operations.
