Midwest Energy Emissions Corp. develops and delivers patented, cost-effective mercury capture systems and technologies to power plants and other coal-burning units in the United States and Canada. As a result of the company’s innovative, patented mercury removal technologies, customers can attain compliance with new, highly restrictive government emissions regulations, in the most effective and economical manner.
In 2011, the EPA issued its Mercury and Air Toxics Standards (MATS) for power plants. The new rule is intended to reduce air emissions of heavy metals, including mercury (Hg), from all major U.S. power plants. It is projected that the total national cost of this mandate will reach $9.6 billion annually. More than a dozen states have established even more stringent emission limits, further increasing demand for energy emission control technology.
Leveraging its partnership with University of North Dakota’s Energy & Environment Research Center (EERC), the premier center of mercury control research, Midwest Energy Emissions is well positioned to meet and exceed new government regulations with its exclusive patent rights to EERC’s mercury control technology. The company’s customer-centric mercury capture solutions use a combination of materials tailored specifically to customers’ coal-fired units.
Years of research and testing with the EERC has enabled Midwest Energy to deliver one of the most effective low-cost and high-capture solutions possible – typically without impacting operations or requiring extensive capital equipment changes. The total mercury solution offered by Midwest Energy Emissions is uniquely formulated to optimize mercury capture at any coal-fired unit.
