Richard MacPherson

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.

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.
