Midwest Energy Emissions is engaged and committed to delivering cost-effective mercury capture technologies to power plants and large industrial coal-burning units located in North America. The company’s proprietary technology serves as an on-ramp for customers assisting them with U.S. EPA compliance standards set for mercury emissions. Upon implementation ME2C processes are effective and economical and cause low levels of disruption to equipment and on-going operations. ME2C’s product lines cover both its patented SEA™ system products and complete line of sorbents for backend system applications across all boiler types.
The SEA™ product line is specifically tailored for each application to match a customer’s fuel type and boiler configuration for the very best results. This high-grade sorbent enhancement additive, which is injected into the boiler in minimal amounts, works in tandem with proprietary sorbents to ensure maximum mercury capture with superior economics compared to typical mercury removal techniques in use today. This tailored approach has the added advantage of substantially reducing the impact of mercury capture on the balance-of-plant systems and operations.
ME2C’s 100% carbon-free line is an enhanced approach in the mercury mitigation sorbent business. Combined with the SEA™ product it offers utilities selling their fly ash a no-risk alternative to the “carbon based” sorbents of the competition. The sorbent product line has been developed and fully demonstrated in long-term field testing over a dozen utilities across North America over the past several years with remarkable results.
In order to achieve necessary capture rates, ME2C conducts all of its analysis in the field monitoring and adjusting as necessary vs. collecting samples for laboratory analysis. ME2C field analysis uses a mobile laboratory trailer equipped with a Leeman cold-vapor atomic adsorption spectrophotometer and a DMA-80 analyzer (Milestone, Inc.). The DMA-80 allows for coal and ash mercury analysis in the field.
In addition to the equipment necessary to do mercury wet-chemistry sampling procedures, several different types of continuous mercury monitors (CMMs) are used including PS Analytical, Tekran, OhioLumex and Thermo. Midwest Energy Emissions headquartered in Worthington, Ohio.
