Abstract:This thesis researches the feasibility of setting up a new production facility to produce masterbatches at a chemical factory. These masterbatches are components the production of carbon granulate, which is the main product of the chemical factory. At the moment the company is buying it from suppliers, but is interested in manufacturing it on its own terrain.The objective of this thesis is to research the financial feasibility of setting up a new production facility for master batches. The qualitative criteria are not looked into, because the financial criteria weigh more heavily on the decision to further expand this project or not. The conclusion of this research is that at the current production levels, it is not feasible to produce the masterbatches in-house. However, if the production grows significantly in the coming years, it would become feasible.
