LEWIS CENTER, OH, Sept. 05, 2019 (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 one of the workshops included as part of the ICMGP 2019, an international conference designed to bridge knowledge on global mercury with environmental responsibility, human welfare, and policy response, to be held in Krakow, Poland, September 8-13, 2019.
The ICMGP 2019 Conference will include detailed sessions and presentations on mercury science, technology, management, and health.
John Pavlish, Chief Technology Officer of ME2C and a widely recognized mercury capture expert, will co-present “Mercury Control Strategies with Additives: Practical Guidance” with Bert Van Den Akker, Application Support Manager EMEA, Cabot Corp, as part of the ICMGP 2019 Workshops to be held on September 8. Organized by distinguished Chairs of the UN Environment Coal Partnership, Dr. Lesley Sloss and Peter Nelson, the Workshops which are scheduled for the first day of the Conference will provide attendees the opportunity to learn and discuss issues with leading scientists about how to monitor, model and measure the impacts of mercury. Pavlish and Van Den Akker are scheduled to present at 1:30 PM CET on Sunday, September 8.
“We are pleased with the opportunity to participate in the renowned ICMGP 2019”, noted Richard MacPherson, President, and CEO of ME2C. “The awareness of our Sorbent Enhancement Additive (SEA®) technologies across the global mercury capture landscape is important both to the Company’s future growth strategies and to aid in the advancement of mercury emissions across Europe and beyond,” explained MacPherson. “Our patented, SEA® technologies are uniquely formulated and positioned to improve the efficiency of mercury emissions capture in Europe’s low-rank coal environments”, continued MacPherson. “The collaborative effort between ME2C and Cabot in Europe, which began in 2018, is making progress in introducing ME2C’s proprietary mercury capture process, as well as scrubber additive technologies, in multiple EU countries. We anticipate new commercial opportunities moving forward in Europe as the BREF-issued EU-IED regulation advances closer to its implementation deadline beginning in 2020.”
