BUSINESS OPPORTUNITIES IN AFRICA


ADDITIONAL INCOME / OPPORTUNITY RELATED TO A FREEZE-DRIED PAPAIN PRODUCTION PLANT: TAR-SATURATED CORRUGATED CARDBOARD ROOFING.

On the promotion board of ISSUE N° 20 - Click here for more - we exposed a "niche" operation: FREEZE-DRIED PAPAIN PRODUCTION which could be used as "economic catalyst" and launching pad for the economic development of an African country's regional territory. .Last month an additional operation - Animal Breeding - was added. Click here for more.

- This month we add a new business opportunity to the PAPAIN production: The production of tar-saturated corrugated cardboard roofing system

As can be seen in the table below, an operation to produce 35 metric tons of high grade freeze-dried papain needs 390,000 to 920,000 papaya trees. One third of the plantation need to be regenerated every three year. Each papaya tree weighing in average 500 kg and yielding 15% of dried cellulose material; 29,250 to 69,000 metric tons of dried cellulose raw material are therefore available to produce tar-saturated corrugated cardboard roofing as here extensively exposed.

Plantation of Papaya
260 to 400 hectares. 1,500 to 2,300 trees per hectare
Investment as below outlined
Workforce on plantation - 400 to 650 workmen for latex collection
Plant management: approximately 40 skilled technicians and engineers
1- Initial survey
Construction/
2- Setup of plant
3- Plantation setup
4- Staff training
5- Technology transfer + Startup Assistance. Etc.
Total investment
US $
8,000,000
Production full capacity
35 -38 metric tons of freeze-dried papain
Minimum activity guaranteed: 1,600 IU/mg
Possible: 3,200 IU/mg
 
Average selling price: US $ per metric ton
190,000
Total revenue / per year at full capacity: US $
6,650,000
Pay-back period
4 to 5 years
 
R.O.I
40 to 50%
 

The fundamentals / Revenue and R.O.I outlined in the table are based only on proceeds from the main production of freeze dried papain. Results from production of tar-saturated corrugated cardboard roofing and last month opportunity here exposed (cattle and or pig breeding as ancillary production) are not included.

One can see - considering these additional operations - why the production of PAPAIN can be used as an "economic catalyst" /central operation for the economic development of a country's region as here exposed. It is a perfect "Income Building Power" operation; labor intensive and foreign currency provider or saver. Capable of generating the "Synergetic Impact Factor" here available
