By calculating the NPW for various interest rates, it is possible to find an interest rate at which the cumulative net present worth at the end of the project is zero. ECONOMIC EVALUATION OF PROJECTS As the purpose of investing money in chemical plant is to earn money, some means of comparing the economic performance of projects is needed.

For small projects, and for simple choices between alternative processing schemes and equipment, the decisions can usually be made by comparing the capital and.
