Pre-Feasibility Study for the Establishment of a Solid Waste Recycling Plant

Garner, Gary O. (1995) Pre-Feasibility Study for the Establishment of a Solid Waste Recycling Plant.



This Pre-feasibility Study Final Report sets out, inter alia, an assessment of the proposed establishment of a recycling plant to be carried out in the vicinity of Caboolture Shire, south-east Queensland. The capital required to fund the Project is $20m, with the base model assuming that 80% ($16m) is derived from investors, and the balance ($4m) obtained through debt funding. This will support capital works in the order of $18m, and a further $2m working capital. The "Break-Even" point is reached where the amount received for MSW Garbage is $34.60 per tonne (assuming 100% equity / investor) funding. The Project will take approximately four years (from the commencement of the commercialisation stage) to achieve annual profitability.

Citation counts are sourced monthly from Scopus and Web of Science® citation databases.

These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.
