Midwest Energy Emissions Corp. Secures $1,000,000+ Order for Injection System and Provides Corporate Update

Company Reiterates Full Year 2017 Revenue Guidance of $60 Million to $70 Million

LEWIS CENTER, OH -- (Marketwired) -- 03/07/17 -- Midwest Energy Emissions Corp. (OTCQB: MEEC) ("ME2C" or the "Company"), a leader in mercury emissions control in North America, has provided a corporate update and announced it has secured an order in excess of $1,000,000 for a new injection system for a large fleet owner of electric generating units (EGU's) which uses ME2C's proprietary Sorbent Enhancement Additive (SEA™) Technology.

Corporate Update

  • ME2C currently has over 20 potential customer EGU's under consideration in varying stages of testing, demonstration and contract negotiation.
  • ME2C's efforts to expand into the Canadian market continue to progress, with testing to commence in the near term on two EGU's. This testing of ME2C's SEA™ Technology will demonstrate how our technologies improve both the cost of compliance and efficiency of the ME2C approach for the entire fleet.
  • The Company's recently announced mercury control product for preventing scrubber reemission events is moving forward aggressively, with over 150 opportunities across the nation being targeted. ME2C's first, full-scale demonstration is expected to take place in April with a large fleet opportunity. The addition of the scrubber reemission product to the Total Mercury Control product line complements existing, patented technologies and further improves the effectiveness and cost savings of the ME2C Mercury Capture Programs.
  • In February, ME2C reported preliminary fourth quarter and FY 2016 revenues, expecting total revenues for the fourth quarter of 2016 to be in excess of $7.8 million, an increase of at least 29% when compared to revenue of $6.1 million in the fourth quarter of 2015. The Company expects total revenues for 2016 to be in excess of $32.3 million, an increase of at least 156% when compared to revenue of $12.6 million in 2015. The Company will release its year end results in late March, and reiterates expected 2017 revenues of between $60 million to $70 million.

Management Commentary
"Our recent injection system order is for a redundant, robust, long term application of our patented SEA Technology system," said Richard MacPherson, President and CEO of ME2C. "Although this one contract is small in nature, we are confident that it will lead to several other opportunities throughout this customer's fleet. We currently have the most robust pipeline in the Company's history, with over 20 units in varying stages of the sales process. We have not experienced any slowdown in the testing at EGUs and expect this to continue for the foreseeable future. Given our significant pipeline, we hope to announce additional contract wins in the near future, which will lead to long-term revenue that is essentially, recurring in nature."

"We are very pleased with our significant progress to-date, which is evidenced by our record 2016 revenues, significant pipeline of opportunities, new products and international expansion. Looking ahead, we will continue to drive recurring revenue and shareholder value by continuing to execute on our current client base while securing additional long-term agreements. In summary, we look forward to another record year for ME2C," concluded MacPherson.
