The products intended to be produced in the banana fibre processing plant are veneer and fibre, and the products to be manufactured in the banana fibre product manufacturing factory are fibre panels such as chipboard, particleboard and MDF panels, all for use in the furniture making and building construction industries. CIG has committed to a five stage program designed to achieve a successful business model in China to meet the demands in China for decorative veneer and fibre board.
CIG is obliged to purchase at least one patented Papyrus banana veneering unit (BVU) and one patented Papyrus banana fibre production unit (FPU) together with other necessary proprietary fibre panel (eg MDF) production machinery to establish the first factory. The MOA requires CIG to pay a 50% deposit for the patented Papyrus machinery by 31 July 2014.
In consideration PPY will grant CE a licence to use and exploit the patented Papyrus technologies to produce the products for sale in China.
