Hydrogen From Coal | Coal Age

 · Future savings from economies of scale could reduce this, lowering the cost of future coal gasification with CCUS by around 10%-15% to closer to £60/MWh ($83/MWh) by 2050. This cost assumes 95% carbon capture rate and a carbon tax by 2050 of £227/tCO 2 ($315/tCO 2), such that carbon costs account for 25% of the cost of hydrogen production.
