LEWIS CENTER, OH -- (Marketwired) -- 10/10/17 -- Midwest Energy Emissions Corp. (OTCQB: MEEC) ("ME2C" or the "Company"), a leader in mercury emissions control in North America, has secured a new purchase order with a Canadian customer for the installation of the Company's proprietary Sorbent Enhancement Additive (SEA™) Technology. This purchase order represents the Company's first customer located outside the United States and initially covers the front end of four new electric generating units (EGUs).

"Our expansion into the Canadian market with this new customer marks a significant milestone for the company and showcases the value of our total solution approach to mercury capture, both in the U.S. and abroad," said Richard MacPherson, President and CEO of ME2C. "As a result of several successful demonstrations and a strong patent portfolio throughout North America, we're pleased with this geographic expansion which should help smooth out seasonal fluctuations. This purchase order being announced today for the supply of front end product represents the first step with this utility in Canada, and we anticipate expansion to additional EGU's in their fleet. The initial purchase order is valued at approximately $700,000.

MacPherson, continued: "For the remainder of the year, we remain focused on executing upon our key initiatives, which consist of leveraging our total solution approach to mercury capture to earn new customers throughout North America, further penetrating existing customer fleets, and growing our geographic footprint in the U.S., Canada, and other key international markets."
