Richard MacPherson brings over 30 years of executive experience from a variety of industries across North America. Serving as President and CEO of ME2C since 2016, Richard MacPherson oversees the expansion, development, and commercialization of the company’s proprietary emissions control technologies across the fossil-fueled energy sector.
Mr. MacPherson founded Midwest Energy Emissions Corp in 2008 to commercialize Sorbent Enhancement Additive (SEA®) technologies. Under MacPherson’s strategic direction, these SEA® products and processes were launched across the coal-fired utility markets in the United States and Canada starting in 2008. Mr. MacPherson negotiated the full SEA® patent portfolio acquisition in May 2017. Since that time, ME2C’s patent portfolio has expanded with additional patents and patent applications for use in Europe, Asia, and North America. MacPherson is actively pursuing licensing partnerships in other regions around the world.
In 2019, ME2C issued a lawsuit naming 43 defendants as infringers on the Company’s patented SEA® technologies. In 2020, all four of the utility defendants, which included Vistra Corp and American Electric Power (AEP), entered into license agreements with the Company and the utilities were subsequently removed from the lawsuit. ME2C continues to seek agreements with other utility infringers, as well as Refined Coal Companies, as named in the 2019 lawsuit.
In 2021, ME2C announced new emissions capture technologies for methane gas abatement in the oil and gas industries. MacPherson’s corporate vision for ME2C is that of an environmental technologies firm focused on sustainable, highly effective emissions control technologies across the energy sector. This was further reinforced with the Company’s rebranding to “ME2C Environmental” in early 2021.
