Ekopanely Group based in the town of Jedousov, Přelouč region of Czech
Republic, has a long tradition in the manufacturing of strawboard, a bio (wastestraw
processing) technology for the building construction industry. The goal of
this project is the establishment of Ecopanel Manufacturing Plant in Nigeria, as a
franchise of Ekopanely s.r.o. The group has agreed to extend franchise to Nigeria
(through NASENI) as a Public-Private Partnership (PPP) ‘waste to wealth’
initiative for the delivery of affordable housing via mortgages to National
Housing Fund contributors in a bilateral trade cooperation. The Group is
proposing a Build, Operate and Franchise (BOF) system for the manufacturing at
selected locations in Nigeria, one production line will be installed at each plant
as initial capital investment in the first phase and increased gradually to ten over
the projected implementation time frame. The project will be supported by Czech
Export Bank and the state insurance institution, EGAP, with offer of financing in
collaboration with Bank of Industry, Nigeria.
