Current comprehensive costs & performance baseline parameters for combined coal-to-chemicals and electrical generation arrays:

 

Electric power, syngas and ammonia

 

Electric power and coal-to-liquids via

Fischer-Tropsch synthesis

 

Electric power,synthetic natural gas and ammonia

 

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.

What is the negative impact of disruptive innovation?

An econometric study  is here on the extent to which 

disruptive technological innovation, called more accurately

 in this paper “intangible capital,” has undermined

U.S. national productivity, empirically measured

for the years 1929-2015.

INFO at INDUSTRIALCOSTANALYSIS.COM

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

 

STEP A

 

Use any or all of the following

to balance your production equations:

 

http://www.chemicalaid.com/tools/equationbalancer.php

 

http://www.gregthatcher.com/Chemistry/BalanceChemicalEquations.aspx

 

STEP B

 

Determine the molecular weights of the corresponding

 produced chemicals so you can determine

the hourly tonnage of production output
