Midwest Energy Emissions Corp. to Present at 13th Annual MEC Workshop in Krakow, Poland
LEWIS CENTER, Ohio, May 17, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Midwest Energy Emissions Corp. (OTCQB:MEEC) ("ME2C" or the "Company"), a leader in mercury emissions control technologies in North America, today announced that John Pavlish, Senior VP and Chief Technology Officer of ME2C, will be a featured speaker at the MEC 13 Workshop, a gathering of international emission control experts specializing in the reduction of mercury to be held in Krakow, Poland, May 21-23, 2018.
John Pavlish, Chief Technology Officer of ME2C and a widely recognized mercury capture expert, will present the application of ME2C’s proprietary mercury capture technology with low-rank coals, Europe’s primary coal source, on May 21 at 5:00 p.m. GMT+2.
Additionally, John Pavlish will jointly introduce the recently announced ME2C-Cabot licensing arrangement in the EU with Jamie Fessenden, Cabot Corporation’s Commercial Director. Fessenden is scheduled to present under “Session 4: Sorbents” on May 22 at 4:00 p.m. GMT+2.
“With continued regulatory influence from the ratification of the Minimata Convention and tightening European Union mercury capture regulations, our direct access to world renowned mercury capture experts and decision makers at MEC 13 is especially timely,” said Richard MacPherson, President and CEO of ME2C. “With the recent EU-IED regulation issued in the BREF, we expect Europe to become a significant commercial opportunity by 2020.
“We believe that the launch of our European licensing transaction with Cabot Corporation at a well-respected industry event such as the MEC 13 Conference will provide the market visibility necessary to further drive technology adoption amongst increasingly stringent mercury capture regulations in the European Union. We have begun testing with major utilities across multiple EU member nations and look forward to providing updates as appropriate.”
