Demand for Cold Storages on the rise in India

This appears to be a very good project for now?
i)For a cpacity of 100 tons permonth, you need to invest about 25 Lakshs
For storage capacity of 100 tonnes, the size of the cold storage has to be around 150 square meters.
whereas non-storage area of 100 square meters. for office, utility room and guard room is sufficient
There are turnkey suppliers of cold storage plants. They undertake supply, erection as well as
complete electrification of the plant. The main requirements are reciprocating compressors
suitable for ammonia, induction motor, blowers, overhead perforated water pipes with tanks,
electric pump, piping, ducting and insulation and standby generator ...
ii)The project cost for setting up of 5000 MT Cold Storage may be in the range of Rs.350 - 400 lakh,
including cost of the land.
Location is a very critical aspect for the success of cold storage. It should be in close
proximity of growing area as well as market and at the same time should be easily accessible
for heavy vehicles round the year. Uninterrupted power supply is yet another pre-requisite.
Cold storage unit is eligible for subsidy of 25% of the project cost subject to a maximum of Rs.50 lakhs.
However, for the project situated in North Eastern States, maximum subsidy would be Rs.60 lakhs (33.33% of the project cost)

Ferric & Non-ferric ALUM for water treatment

Here are some details FOR QUICK REVIEW..
Bauxite lumps are crushed  fed to a closed circuit grinding mill in which it is further
reduced in size. The ground bauxite is fed at a regulated rate to digester containing sulphuric acid and water. The Al2O3 in bauxite reacts with Sulphuric Acid to form Aluminum Sulphate. The reacted mass is then led to a series of settlers in which the unreacted particles settle down. The liquor containing Aluminum Sulphate is evaporated in steam heated evaporators where the liquor is concentrated to final product containing 16-17% Al2O3. The product is cooled in moulds
Alums are usually the double salts of ammonium, potassium or sodium sulphate with aluminium, chromium or iron sulphate, and are readily prepared by concentrating and cooling a solution containing molecular proportions of the component sulphate. Ferric alum mainly used in paper sizing and in water treatment. Demand for ferric alum is arising for making water more soft for drinking and industrial uses. Present production of ferric alum is insufficient to satisfy the demand and supply. It provides good scope to many new units to enter in this industry.
Plant capacity: 30 Metric Tons per Day
Plant & machinery: INR 50.00 Lacs (roughly)
Working capital: INR 75 Lacs ( approximately)

The National Green Tribunal on Monday banned mining or removal of sand in India
Sand can also be Manufactured !
Manufactured sand, also called artificial sand, is being successfully used in the production of high quality concrete and asphalt around the world. Its superior shape puts it well within specifications imposed on sand for use in concrete production
Builders say Maharashtra alone requires close to 50000 sand trucks for construction purpose daily for more than 30 infrastructure projects and 3000 housing projects in Mumbai
There is lots of potential in India for the project of Manufactured sand ; here are details
