Maize based 25 bioproducts - SEZ – Reducing CAPEX & OPEX

Project Outline

 

  1. Core projects: Ethanol or Commercial starch 

  • Composite Ethanol project: 150,000T/Y superfine + DDGS 135,000T/Y + 3,000T/Y impure alcohol + 600T/Y fusel oil + 12,000T/Y corn oil        

      Cost Approx.: US$ 90 Million

  • Composite starch project: 50,000T/Y starch + 6,000T/Y corn oil + 11,000T/Y protein powder + 21,000T/Y fibber + 10,000T/Y germ cake + 12,000T/Y steep liquor        

      Approx.: US$ 30 Million

  • Simple Starch project: 100,000 T/Y starch + Germ cake 9750 T/Y  + corn Fiber 20,000 T/Y  + Protein 7500 T/Y.  

      Approx.: US$ 9.3 M

 

  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

 

  4. Prospects

      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.
