Corsicana, Texas--(Newsfile Corp. - April 18, 2023) - Midwest Energy Emissions Corp. (OTCQB: MEEC) ("ME2C Environmental" or the "Company"), a leading environmental technologies firm, announced today that it has entered into a new supply partnership with an existing technology licensee. In March 2022, the Company announced that it had exercised its right of first refusal ("ROFR") for mercury emissions capture product supply with a significant coal-powered utility operating in the Midwest and had begun pre-supply planning discussions. This major utility has now issued its first order for one of its coal-fired power plants, which business has a value of approximately $9M over the first three years and we are now working on converting the rest of their fleet to our supply.
"We engaged with this utility in early 2021 through our IP outreach program and announced a subsequent license agreement with this utility in late 2021," stated Richard MacPherson, Chief Executive Officer of ME2C Environmental. "This new multiyear recurring revenue supply business is a solid extension on the original license agreement and worth between $9M and $15M in revenue over the next 5 years. We have more opportunities with this major utility as we discuss product supply for the utility's other coal-fired power plants.
Continued MacPherson, "The U.S. coal power market remains stable and ME2C's market share across the coal-fired utility sector continues to increase at an impressive rate due to our patent defense and business first approach. Since 2020, we have announced eight new partnership agreements that were obtained through our ongoing industry-wide outreach. Three of the eight utilities have now expanded their agreements to include supply business. We expect to see this core licensing and supply revenue base increase rapidly as we gain momentum in negotiations with other utilities as our litigation comes to conclusion this year," concluded MacPherson.
