TD Chemicals has since 2007 prepared conceptual and preliminary feasibility studies for the production of value added products from coal. These include synthetic natural gas, methanol, dimethyl ether (DME), ammonia, urea, diesel and naphtha. Results achieved are preliminary flow diagrams, mass and energy balances, capital and operating budget estimates and cash flow analyses.
