ME2C Environmental Eliminates $860,000 of Convertible Debt

Conversion Further Reduces Debt Profile & Fortifies Balance Sheet

CORSICANA, TX, Feb. 18, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Midwest Energy Emissions Corp. (OTCQB: MEEC) ("ME2C Environmental" or the “Company”), a leading environmental technologies firm, today announced that the Company will convert holders of all of outstanding principal of its 2018 Convertible Promissory Notes into ME2C Environmental shares. The Company will convert a total of $860,000 of outstanding principal into shares of the Company’s common stock at the Note’s conversion price of $0.50 per share.

Richard MacPherson, President and Chief Executive Officer of ME2C Environmental, commented: “We continue to see exciting momentum in the industry in conjunction with several recent announcements. Earlier this month, we announced that we are actively developing a methane gas emissions abatement technology for the oil & gas industry. In January, we reported licensing agreements for our two-part Sorbent Enhancement Additive process for mercury removal from coal-fired power plants with the last two of four major North American utility defendants named in our previously disclosed patent litigation.

“Our share price increase as of late has now triggered a forced debt conversion per the terms of the notes, which will further strengthen our balance sheet as we look ahead towards our goal to uplist in 2021. We look forward to continued operational improvements as we progress through the year while creating sustainable, long-term value for our shareholders,” concluded MacPherson.
