Social Impact Project for Lead acid battery experteer for a new manufacturing plant in Mongolia
Project Description and Impact
Mongolia is largely a mining economy. Mongolia’s economy is hugely dependent on the export of minerals like copper, coal, iron and exports of minerals account more than 90% of country’s total exports, showing that the economy is very vulnerable on price of commodities. At the same time, Mongolia mainly imports goods from abroad than producing internally. Exports shrink when prices of commodities fall, while imports largely stays at the same level, this problem creates huge pressure on the local currency resulting in less buying power. One way of elevating this problem is “import substitution” of goods that can be produced internally. To dedicate our efforts handling this problem our company made some research and identified “battery” as a product we can manufacture internally because first battery manufacturing process is not very complicated and also the amount that we can “import substitute” is significant for one single product.
Mongolia’s battery need per year is estimated to be around USD 30.0 mln but as there is no battery manufacturing factory in Mongolia, all are imported from countries such as Japan, South Korea.
Therefore we are aiming to start up a battery manufacturing plant in Mongolia and for that we need experts that can assist us from making the feasibility study, technology selection, designing of batteries. We estimating that our project will create around 20 new full time jobs.
By participating in the MovingWorlds Institute, you will first learn social impact frameworks and human-centered design before putting your existing skills and new knowledge to action.In addition, this organization will expose you to new things, like:
Mongolia is a unique in country. An experteer can learn local nomadic lifestyle will be able to travel to the country side to visit local families and see how people live.
We can provide either private apartment or hotel depending on the choice of the experteer.
We can agree on this.
We can cover all of the travel cost.
We can agree on this.
We can provide car with driver, personal assistant, travelling to attraction places in Mongolia.
This project accepts virtual experteers.
