Current comprehensive costs & performance baseline parameters for combined coal-to-chemicals and electrical generation arrays:
NOTE: In my opinion, with these arrays the captured CO2 should be sequestered into methanol as the hydrogen source is available onsite or shipped in of necessity with the retrofits of these plants.
The full range of ammonia & methanol-derived monetizable products may be manufactured with further refinery construction, or the ammonia and/or methanol sold to offsite clients at the discretion of management.
There is no good reason why any emissions-compliant coal electric plant, whether direct gasification or conventional with CO2 capture & with either retrofitted with refinery skids, should not yield over a net 30% IRR.

Stand-alone electric power generation is not cost-effective unless annual national GDP growth exceeds 7%, the national prime rate is 10% or more,
and 70% of the workforce is gainfully employed, regardless of fuel type. Co-production built the global power industry, not solely power-only plants.
HOW TO FIGURE PRODUCTION YIELDS
FOR CARBON DIOXIDE-DERIVED CO-PRODUCED CHEMICALS
Use any or all of the following
to balance your production equations:
Determine the molecular weights of the corresponding
produced chemicals so you can determine
the hourly tonnage of production output
Find the price at ICIS & other chemical costing Websites.
Firms that design and build these plants can be located through the Hydrocarbon Processing Magazine business directory.
