2. 20 Bioproducts
1. Xylitol - (Corn cob) 2. Sorbitol 3. Mannitol 4. Maltitol 5. Furfural 6. Erythritol 7. Lactic acid 8. Polylactic acid 9. Lysine 10. Probiotics 11. enzyme 12. Vitamin C etc.
3. SEZ outline - Land: 100 to 300 Acre
Ethanol or Starch project: 30 Acres + Utilities: 10 Acre (Common pool) + Residential: 10 acres + Selling out for related industry, 20 bio products: 50 to 250 acres
(Reducing CAPEX by 20%)
Related industry: Reducing OPEX by 10%
Common facilities: Power + Steam + Water + Residential, commercial areas etc.
(Reducing OPEX by 10%)
SEZ incentives: Import duty, income tax, Captive power permission
Maize-based bioproducts market expanding big way. Export potential + Pakistan has cheaper raw material and manpower
5. Financing and attracting investment
Hybrid equipment, (local, Chinese, European), core project financing from Europe at lowest interest
Roadshow in China, Brussels for bioproducts investors
Note: We are suggesting 1000 acres on lease for maize cultivation, introducing hybrid and genetic seeds.
