Midwest Energy Emissions Corp. Secures Additional Order With First International Customer in Canada

Installation of Proprietary SEA(TM) Technology at Major Canadian Powerplant in May of 2018

LEWIS CENTER, OH -- (Marketwired) -- 04/25/18 -- Midwest Energy Emissions Corp. (OTCQB: MEEC) ("ME2C" or the "Company"), a leader in mercury emissions control in North America, has secured another order from its previously announced Canadian customer to install its proprietary Sorbent Enhancement Additive (SEA™) Technology at another one of their large power plants in Alberta, Canada. Installation operations are expected to begin in May of 2018.

This new international order follows the successful installation and operation of the Company's SEA™ Technology on the front end of four electric generating units (EGUs), also in Alberta, Canada, in late 2017. ME2C will begin by installing their proprietary technology on one boiler at this new location, and if successful, may install their SEA technology on up to three EGUs at this new location. ME2C has worked with this Canadian customer since 2011 across multiple projects in both the United States and Canada.

"We are pleased to have secured a new order with this customer for our proprietary SEA technology," said Richard MacPherson, President and CEO of ME2C. "Our technology offers a significant improvement over the current system, from both a material savings and performance perspective. We continue to value our strong relationship with this customer and believe their continued business is a strong testament to the effectiveness of our technologies."

MacPherson, continued: "Our international diversification efforts continue to bear fruit, as notable industry players in key global markets discover the value inherent in our proprietary technology. We expect this international expansion to smooth out seasonal fluctuations in our revenues and improve long-term profitability. As we move through 2018, we will remain focused on our key initiatives, which consist of leveraging our total solution approach to mercury capture to sign new customers throughout North America, further penetrating existing customer fleets, and growing our international footprint."
