TOOTHPICK PRODUCTION IN NIGERIA; THE OPPORTUNITY.

So much has been said and written about the investment opportunities in the agricultural sector in Nigeria especially in crop, livestock and fishery production to the disadvantage of the forestry sub sector. This situation has lead to the forestry sub sector contributing only 3% of the over 40% presently been contributed to the gross domestic product of the country by the agricultural sector.

This can be attribution to lack of information / interest and investment in the sub sector for a very long time. Forestry apart from providing us with industrial wood can also be used for leisure purpose. One of the products can be gotten from forest is bamboo.

Bamboo is a grass plant with hard hollow stem. They are the largest members of the grass family and are mainly found in the tropical region. Bamboos are some of the fastest growing plants in the world and they are of economic and cultural significance as a food source, building material and a versatile raw product.

One of the uses of bamboo is the production of tooth picks. Tooth picks is a small stick of wood , plastic , bamboo or other substance used to remove detritus from the teeth usually after a meal.

The product is not subject to expiry timelines and there are two models toothpick production lines. One is bamboo toothpick production line and wooden toothpick production line.

Some of the equipment required for the production of tooth pick includes

1 Sawing Machine (bamboo) 1
2 Bamboo Dissection Madhine 1
3. Flaker 1
4 Fix and turn on one slice of machines thick and definitely wide 1
5 Bamboo filament shaping machine 1
6 Bamboo filament set-size machine 1
7 Toothpicks Polishing Machine 1
8 Toothpicks set-size Machine 1
9 Toothpicks mincing Machine (unicuspid or two side) 1
10 Multi sharpen machine

Typically the production process for toothpick can be divided into three [3} namely the log stage, the billet state and the finishing. A detailed analysis of each of the stages is given below.

The Log Stage

The process of making a toothpick begins with birch logs. The logs are lifted by grippers into a de-barker, which in two passes of the blade creates a smooth, barkless cylinder. The log is then transported into the unraveling machine, which strips the log like paper (1.06 mm thick) using 12 blades.

The Billet Stage

The end result of the unraveling machine is a billet. A billet (1.8 kilos) is manually removed and carried to a puncher. The puncher cuts identical toothpick strips at the rate of 8,000 toothpicks per second. The end result, however, is a small, soft piece of wood.

The Finishing Stage

These soft toothpicks are hardened in a dryer for 12 hours and then polished using talcum powder and friction for another four hours. The hardened toothpicks then pass through a sifter that removes damaged toothpicks. The acceptable toothpicks are sorted into a blower and conveyor that counts and packages them at the rate of 747,500 per hour.

The finished product can be packed in plastic containers in different sizes to suit the demands of the market.

The market for toothpick in Nigeria is large and sustainable with a national population of 165,000,000 people. With most of the tooth pick products in the market been imported, the investor can be assured a ready market for the product.

Some of the likely buyers include hotels, restaurants, household etc.

SUPPLY WASTE NYLON AND POLYTHENE MATERIALS TO LOCAL INDUSTRIES IN NIGERIA AND MAKE HUGE PROFIT

Recycling is an economic development tool as well as an environmental tool. Reuse, recycling, and waste reduction offer direct development opportunities for communities. When collected with skill and care, and upgraded with quality in mind, discarded materials are a local resource that can contribute to local revenue, job creation, business expansion, and the local economic base

The raw materials are never in short supply as Lagos is known for its huge generation of waste. From figures available from LAWMA, 9,000 metric tonnes of waste is generated daily with about 1,200 metric tonnes being converted into other uses.This create room for the establishment of recycling plants in Lagos and indeed other states of the federation

The investor can start the business through the following ways

1. Supplier/ Collector

2. Collection Center Operator

3. Recycler

As a supplier/ collector, the investor collect waste polythene materials from different sources and supplies to the collection center operator who processes the material and sell to the recycler.

The recycler recycles the product and make useful to the plastic industries to use.

Waste plastic materials can be divided into two broad categories namely

1. Low Density

2. High Density

Low-density polyethylene (LDPE) is a thermoplastic made from petroleum and is commonly recycled and has the number “4” as its recycling symbol. LDPE is defined by a density range of 0.910–0.940 g/cm3.

It is not reactive at room temperatures, except by strong oxidizing agents, and some solvents cause swelling.

It can withstand temperatures of 80 °C continuously and 95 °C for a short time. Made in translucent or opaque variations, it is quite flexible, and tough but breakable. Examples of low density material are pure water sachets and cellophanes bags.

High-density polyethylene (HDPE) or polyethylene high-density (PEHD) is a polyethylene thermoplastic made from petroleum. It takes 1.75 kilograms of petroleum (in terms of energy and raw materials) to make one kilogram of HDPE. HDPE is commonly recycled, and has the number “2” as its recycling symbol. . An example of high density material is the one used in packaging pure water sachets.

It is important to state that not all plastic is considered economically viable by processor.

Below is the list of materials accepted in the recycling business

Shopping Bags

Laundry Bags

Pure Water Sachets

Yogurt Wrappers

Soft Poly Bags

Hospital Drip Bags

Pop Corn Wrapper

Bread Wrapper

Cellophane

Below is the list of materials NOT accepted in the recycling business

Indomie Noodles wrapper

Detergent Bags

Biscuit Wrappers

Milk Sachet

Tea Wrapper

Poly Propylene Bags

The return on investment in the trading of waste nylon and polythene materials is estimated at 10%- 15%.

COAL PELLETISATION AND BRIQUETTEE PRODUCTION IN NIGERIA FOR THE LOCAL AND EXPORT MARKET.

Coal, a black mineral that is found below the ground and burnt to produce heat, as been used for many years to power railways, power and manufacturing plants. Coal is not only used as fuel, they are also used in the industrial production of tar, gas and non edible oils.

Nigerian Coal is one of the most bituminous in the world owing to its low sulphur and ash content and therefore the most environmental friendly. There are nearly three billion {3,000,000,000} tonnes of indicated reserves in seventeen {17} identified coalfields and over six hundred million {600,000,000} tonnes of proven reserves in Nigeria and they can be found in mostly Enugu and Kogi states in Nigeria.

Given the large deposits of brown coal in the tertiary sediments east and west of River Niger; there are investment opportunity in the pelletisation and briquette of coal for the local and export market.

Coal pelletisation/briquetting refers to a process of compressing coal into pre-casted shapes and designs. This process not only enables the resulting product to burn longer but also makes it smokeless.

Coal briquette presents a great alternative to over 90% of Nigeria’s over one hundred and forty million {140,000,000} people that depends on kerosene for cooking and other domestic uses.

The supply and distribution of kerosene in Nigeria is faced with a lot of problem ranging from scarcity to non –availability, therefore the market for coal briquette in Nigeria is sustainable.

The export market for coal pellet/ briquette is also established and sustainable.

Packaging could be in 1, 5, 10, 15 Kg depending on the market requirement.

In order to encourage investment, government has put in place various incentives in the solid minerals industry like

• 3-5 years Tax Holiday

• Deferred royalty payments

• Possible capitalization of expenditure on exploration and surveys

• Extension of infrastructure such as roads and electricity to mining sites, and provision of 100% foreign ownership of mining concerns.

TRADING ON RAW HIDES AND SKINS IN NIGERIA: THE OPPORTUNITY.

In Nigeria, agriculture has remained the largest sector of the economy. It generates employment for about 70% of Nigeria’s population and contributes about 40% to the Gross Domestic Product (GDP) with crops accounting for 80%, livestock 13%, forestry 3% and fishery 4%.

Though contributing only 13% to the national GDP, livestock plays an important role by providing part of the nations protein needs and it is from it that hides and skin is gotten from.

Ranking only second to cocoa as Nigerians largest non-oil export in terms of volume ,processed hides and skin sure do have a lot of international demand where they are used in the production of leather products like shoes, bags, watch straps, belts etc.

Nigeria produces one of the best hides and skin in the world and in order to encourage the local processing of hides and skin, development of related industries and employment generation, government placed a ban on the export of raw hide and skin in Nigeria.

This ban on the export of raw hides and skin as lead to establishment of local tannery constantly in need of raw hides and skins for process hence creating supply opportunity for interested investors. However to tap into this opportunity, the investor would need to understand in details the different types and sizes of hides and skin in the market.

Important to note is the ever increasing competition between humans and industry for raw hides and skin in Nigeria which further creates scarcity of the product.

The major market destinations for Nigeria’s processed hides and shin is mainly in Europe and Asia with Italy , China ,Hong Kong leading the pack.

Though in Nigeria, majority of the product processed hides and skin tends to come from cow and goat, other animal skin equally have great demand and they include crocodile, buffalo, Zebra etc. It is however, important to note that in order to guide against indiscriminate killing and pouching of wild animals, the convention on international trade of endangered species of wild fauna and flora {CITES}, signed a treaty that restricts the importation of animal skins in order to preserve such animals. The treaty also empowers CITES to grant exemption for trade in skins of animals reared in captivity.
