Saboo Technologies Limited of India carried out a feasibility study, to establish the costs, raw materials, and project longevity of production. According to their findings, the project is expected to cost US$225 million (Shs765 billion). Of this, about US$200 million (Shs680 billion) will be spent on plant and machinery and the remaining US$25 million (Shs85 billion), will be spent on operational expenses. The project will be developed in two phases.[3]
