This research aims to assess the economics of producing aluminum oxide (Al2O3) on a large scale utilizing mechanochemical processes. This assessment is made from both a technical and a financial standpoint. Based on gross profit margin, payback duration, and cumulative net present value, several economic assessment factors were examined to acquire potential information from the manufacturing of Al2O3 nanopowder. The findings of this study revealed that mechanochemical methods might be used to produce Al2O3 nanopowder in a commercial setting. According to engineering calculations, Al2O3 nanopowder can be generated in quantities of up to 146.88 tons per year for a profit of 715,216.75 USD over 20 years. An economic review is conducted to ensure that this project can be completed based on projections of ideal and non-ideal situations, such as tax increases, sales changes, raw material prices, utility prices, and labour pay. This research should help with the production of Al2O3 nanopowder on a large scale utilizing the mechanochemical process.
