A biotechnology manufacturing plant can manufacture 80 kg crude enzyme solution (10% by weight solution) per day from its microbial fermentation vats for a daily cost of $8147 and 100 kg per day of the 10% crude enzyme solution for a total daily cost of $9647. Costs are linear with production.
If further purification of the solution to a powdered and packaged enzyme product adds 30% to the cost, what will be the cost of manufacturing 100 g of the powdered enzyme? Again, all costs are linear with production. Any “shrinkage” or waste/loss has been included in the cost figures given.
If this company needs to earn 20% profit on this product, what should be the price for 10 g of the final enzyme powder?Posted: 4 years agoDue: 14/03/2016Budget: $5
