Jury Awards ME2C Environmental $57 Million for Patent Infringement

Corsicana, Texas--(Newsfile Corp. - March 4, 2024) - Midwest Energy Emissions Corp. (TSXV: MEEC) (OTCQB: MEEC) ("ME2C Environmental " or the "Company"), a leading environmental technologies firm, announced today that a federal jury in the U.S. District Court for the District of Delaware has awarded a $57 million patent infringement verdict in favor of the Company against the remaining group of defendants in the Company's patent infringement lawsuit which commenced in 2019 with patent attorneys, Caldwell Cassady Curry LLP.

The Company stated that the jury awarded separate amounts totaling $57 million against a group of affiliated defendants that included multiple limited liability companies with refined coal industry operations, including CERT Operations II LLC, CERT Operations IV LLC, CERT Operations V LLC, and CERT Operations RCB LLC. The jury determined that these defendants infringed the Company's patented technologies for mercury emissions and were liable for willful infringement, along with inducing and contributory infringement.

The Company had previously announced in November 2023 that it had entered into a settlement with two other groups of defendants, Arthur J. Gallagher & Co. and DTE Energy Resources LLC, and various of their respective affiliated entities, leaving the CERT defendants as the remaining parties to the litigation.

"We are thrilled to see the jury recognize the value of our intellectual property with this unanimous jury verdict, which is a clear vindication of the strength of our patented technologies," said Richard MacPherson, Chief Executive Officer of ME2C Environmental. "This verdict is an important outcome in protecting our market position in mercury emissions at coal-fired power plants against infringing entities and falls on the heels of the previous settlement reached with the Arthur J. Gallagher and DTE Energy group of defendants in November 2023."
