Project Name: water filter candles
Project Type: New
Purpose of the project: This profile envisages the establishment of a plant for the production of water filter candles with a capacity of 25,000 pieces per annum. Water filter candles are used to filter turbid water from ponds, lakes, rivers, etc. and hence play a crucial role in the provision of safe drinking water in rural areas. Location of the project:

II. EXECUTIVE SUMMARY
This profile envisages the establishment of a plant for the production of water filter candles with a capacity of 25,000 pieces per annum. Water filter candles are used to filter turbid water from ponds, lakes, rivers, etc. and hence play a crucial role in the provision of safe drinking water in rural areas.
The major raw materials needed for the production of water filter candles are china clay, ball clay, feldspar, quartz, limestone, bactericide as well as ash, saw dust and other organic materials like starch. Bactericide and ball clay have to be imported.
The demand for these products is directly related with projects for the provision of clean drinking water at household level. The present demand for the proposed product is estimated at 20,158 pieces per annum. The demand is expected to reach at 35,132 pieces by the year 2022.
The total investment requirement is estimated at about TK. 4.72 million, out of which TK. 2.05 million is required for plant and machinery. The plant will create employment opportunities for 16 persons.
The project is financially viable with an internal rate of return (IRR) of 25.38 % and a net present value (NPV) of TK. 3.23 million discounted at 8.5%.
The project has backward linkages with the mining industry. The establishment of such factory will have a foreign exchange saving effect to the country by substituting the current imports.
III.PRODUCT DESCRIPTION AND APPLICATION
Raw water contains suspended impurities and pathogenic bacteria, which are responsible for water borne diseases, like cholera, typhoid, jaundice, etc. These contaminants have to be removed to make the water safe for drinking purpose. One of the well-known methods is to filter water through beds sand, gravel and charcoal to remove the suspended impurities, followed by boiling to kill the bacteria. This process, though efficient, is...
