@ Shuhra/ Koofi,
Great Question! I said this is a great question because poor consideration of the citing of the laboratories may trigger socio-political bias. However, from my basic knowledge of economics, businesses are best set up either close to the source of raw materials or close to the market. In this case, I would consider proximity to the market.
By definition in the context of my business plan, "market" would refer to any part of Nigeria with the greater density of institutions of higher learning. Any part of Nigeria with the most number of universities around, by inference, will determine the citing.
As I also mentioned, accommodation will be provided for out-of-region visitors or any visitor who may want to stay around for a period of time for the purpose of research or training.
Thank you once again for your questions.
While this idea may be taken up for business reasons, my primary focus for developing it is for non-profit reasons as its effect will be felt on a global scale. The huge capital investment that is needed will mostly be for research and development of prototypes and for further scalar modifications.
It is my dream that it would be distributed globally free-of-charge as the essence is for the benefit of mankind and not for profit.
I believe this to be the solution to our climate change problems
Thank you for your kind comments. Yes, time is a factor, however, there are research institutes who are willing to present their facilities for product development at pilot scale. Such facilities can be employed for development of the plastics pending completion of the large scale one.
This will ameliorate the lag and also provide extensive edge for re-introduction of such products.
Thank you for your question. Please vote for me
