PLASTIC DISPOSABLE CUP PRODUCTION IN NIGERIA; HOW VIABLE?

A disposable is a product designed for cheapness and short-term convenience rather than medium to long-term durability, with most products only intended for single use. The term is also sometimes used for products that may last several months to distinguish from similar products that last indefinitely.

The disposable products include medical & hygiene products such as toilet paper, plastic syringes, blood bags, paper napkins, facial paper & toilet rolls ,baby and adult diapers etc. kitchen & dining products like disposable dishware, plastic cutlery, cans ,bottles, cups, plates, glasses etc.

Disposable plastic cups are manufactured by thermoforming technique. Thermoforming is one of many manufacturing process that converts plastic resin into usable everyday product. Thermoforming is considered to be one of the most cost – effective processes in plastic manufacturing because of the low moulding costs and fast moulding cycles. Speed and cost efficiency are the highlighted qualities that thermoforming offers which lead the way for the process becoming so important in industry today.

Disposable plastic cups are fast replacing conventional cups. Ice-cream and other dairy products are packed in disposable cups.Disposable cups are mainly used for food items and are made out of polypropylene or polystyrene sheets. Sheets having thickness 0.35 mm to 18 mm are used for these items in thermoforming machine.

Apart from being used at home, they also come in handy during parties, weddings, picnics and other functions and get -together. The major user of cups are the ice cream manufacturers and they have started using plastic cups instead of paper ones that were being used earlier.

The main advantage of these plastic cups is that they are completely leak proof. Plastic cups can be made up of different sizes and they can hold bulk material easily in comparison to the traditional paper cups.

In addition to be used at home these are largely used in parties and other functions. The use of disposable items is increasing day by day due to better hygienic conditions, low cost, easy usability and impressive appearance. Plastic cups are largely used for tea, juices, coffee and other purposes. Having in view the demand of these items, it can be predicted that there is good scope for new entrepreneurs.

The proposed plant comprises of one set of Single Layer PP/PS Sheet Extrusion Line, Automatic Cam Cup Thermoforming Machine, Auto loader, Crusher, Mixer, Air Cooling Chiller, Automatic Cup Stacker, Screw Air, Compressor, Air Storage Tank, Manual Hydraulic Lifter and PP Round Cup Mold.

FERRIC ALUM (ALUMINIUM SULPHATE) PRODUCTION IN NIGERIA; HOW VIABLE?

Alum  is  a  generic  name  for  double  salts  of  aluminium  sulphate,  sodium sulphate or ammonium sulphate. In the commercial line aluminium sulphate is also known as Alum. It is white in colour. The principal raw material for manufacturing of Alum are bauxite and sulphuric acid.

Alum, ferric (aluminium sulfate) is produced by the reaction of sulphuric acid on bauxite a naturally occurring hydrated alumina ore having the approximate formula Al2O3.2H2O.

They are usually the double salts of ammonium, potassium or sodium sulphate with aluminium. Chromium or iron sulphate, and are readily prepared by concentrating and cooling a solution containing molecular proportions of the component sulphate. Ferric and non – ferric alum is marketed in various grades. The cheapest grade called “alum cake”. Potash alum also known as alum alumen. Ferric alumin is aluminium sulphate containing iron obtained from the bauxite ore. Potash alum is prepared from its naturally occurring minerals such asalunite and ratinite.

The Al2O3 percentage should be 57-58% to produce A grade ferric alums. Technical grade sulphuric acid having concentration of 98.5% is used for the process. The spent sulphuric Acid which is 70% to 90% pure can also be used partially with 98.5% Acid.

Alum is a common name for aluminium sulphate. Used for purification of water, alum has a lot of applications – dying of fabrics, tanning of leather and in the paper industry.

Apart from household consumers, industrial consumption of alum in the country creates a continuous demand market that can only be satisfied with the establishment of small cottage industries in different parts of the country.

The main raw materials for alum manufacturing are bauxite and sulphuric acid, which can be sourced locally. Bauxite deposits occur in commercial quantities in Ondo, Cross River and Yobe states.

The  product  has  a  very  good  market  as  present,  as  this  is  extensively  used  in water  purification  (to a large extent by different water corporations),  by  the leather  industries  for  tanning  purposes and  by  the  paper  industries.  It  can  also  be used as  a  raw  material  for  detergent  cake  manufacturing  and  also  in  several  other products, if quality of Alum is properly controlled.
