ChemCo is evaluating a project based on the principles of capital budgeting. ChemCo should accept the project if it has a:

A profitability index greater than one.

Several decision criteria are available when evaluating a standalone project. These criteria include net present value (NPV), profitability index (PI), and internal rate of return (IRR). The decision rules for these measures are as follows.
NPV: If NPV > 0, accept project
If NPV < 0, reject project
PI: If PI > 1, accept project
If PI < 1, reject project
IRR: If IRR > required return, accept project
If IRR < required return, reject project
