Company to Receive New Multi-Year Supply Business
CORSICANA, TX, July 15, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Midwest Energy Emissions Corp. (OTCQB: MEEC) ("ME2C Environmental" or the “Company”), a leading environmental technologies firm, today announced that the Company has secured new multi-year supply business with a coal-fired power plant located in the Midwest, which power plant is part of the fleet of a large utility based in the Southwest region of the U.S.
This incremental supply business was gained after testing was completed at the above-mentioned power plant. The utility, which has been a long-standing customer, signed a license agreement in 2020 to provide them a non-exclusive license to the Company’s patented mercury capture technology and to facilitate the parties’ then ongoing business relationship. The additional supply business being announced today has an expected multi-million-dollar revenue value per year.
“We are pleased that this major utility, who entered into a license agreement last year, has elected to augment its business as a direct supply customer with additional supply business for another plant in its fleet after completing requisite testing at this plant,” stated Richard MacPherson, Chief Executive Officer of ME2C Environmental. “This utility has chosen to further enhance their operations with our customized sorbent supply along with the license to operate.”
Continued MacPherson, “As we gain recognition for the value of our patented technologies, we look forward to broadening the reach of our core business in mercury emissions capture across the U.S. coal-fired fleet. Any utility working with us directly receives a license to operate the patented SEA® technology and gains the full support of our expertise in operations and R&D, which we believe will provide superior benefits and bottom-line improvements.
This major utility was one of the first to enter into a license agreement and now the first to extend their agreement to include additional direct supply business. As we move through the next several months, we expect to continue to grow our supply business with our licensees,” concluded MacPherson.
