4.Economic benefits analysis

The direct economic benefit can be calculated by the following formulas :

W = 1000×M×N×Qe×(Y1-Y)

W---Value created from the adding of tobacco sheet(yuan )

M--- Efficient utilization rate of sheet calculating in terms of 95%

NEfficient operation rate of equipment calculating in terms of 90%

      Qe--Quantity of sheet added into tobacco silk(ton) in one year. Calculating in one day 2 shifts, every shift is 1.6ton, calculating in every year 260 workdays,


Y1-- Price of some grade tobacco leaf replaced by sheet (yuan/kg). Calculating in terms of 16 yuan/kg.

Y--- Cost of sheet , calculating in terms of 5.72 yuan/kg

W = 1000 * 95% * 90% * 832 *(16 - 5.72)= 0.7313million

5.Investment recovery period:

The investment for one 200kg/h sheet production line is about 12 million yuan, so the investment recovery period is : 12 million ÷0.7313million ≈1.64year
