- Prospective Venture: On finalising funding i propose to go ahead with setting up the plant. Initial plan of production will be 30000 lts per day.We plan to increse production to 100000 lts per day in the third year .This expansion will be funded by internal accurals. Value addition can be undertaken with further investments .Crude glycerol can be purified sold which can increase revenues from sale of glycerol tenfold. Another avenue of value addition is to extract tocopherols from crude palm oil before conversion to biodiesel.Tocopherols are rich in vitamin E and are widely used in pharmaceutical industry
