How to Write Marketing Aspect of Feasibility Study

In previous post, I wrote about how to write technical aspect of feasibility study. In this post, I want to share you how to write marketing aspect of feasibility study. This topic is important to ensure that the proposed product has market/specific market and to determine how much the capacity of product to be produced.

When I involved in the project, which was reactivation of carboxymethyl cellulose (CMC) plant, I learnt that Indonesia mostly imported CMC from China. Local producers of CMC in Indonesia were only two, PT Humpuss Karboksimetil Selulosa (PT HKS) and the other one (I forgot). The fact that Indonesia imported CMC means there are demand that cannot be met be local supply. So, marketing aspect aspect of feasibility will be started from supply and demand. Read More

Typical Content of Feasibility Study

Many people visited my blog because they searched about feasibility study. I wrote a bit about the topic years ago. I wrote it when I involved in my second feasibility study project, which is bankable feasibility study for ferronickel smelter.

In this post I want to share you typical content of feasibility study. The content actually may be different from one another, depends on the topic. But, after I involved in two previous feasibility projects and current project, I learnt that there is similarity about the structure of the content.

I hope you find this post is useful. Read More

Chemical Engineer’s Diary: How far I have grown?

About five days ago I got an email from my boss. He asked my opinion about working in this company. Honestly, I have been asking myself how far I have grown as chemical engineer who works as consultant. I found the answer was very hard. I am not quite sure I have grown a lot as chemical engineer.

I have involved in six projects, one pre-feasibility study project, one bankable feasibility study project, three energy audit projects, and one engineering project (make piping and instrumentation diagram mostly). Although my project is quite a lot, I think my chemical engineering knowledge improved slowly. This is regrettable, but I need will not stop to create many ideas to improve ability. Read More
