Celebrating the Past

ChemElements | History

Our history started in 1917 in Uzovka (nowadays is Donetsk) with the production of nitric acid and ammonium nitrate. For more than 75 years the factory was owned by soviet government. During this period Donetsk Fine Chemicals plant became the largest producer of high purity mineral salts in the world. In 1991 before the collapse of the USSR the plant produced over 110 000 tons of high purity chemicals, employing more then 3000 people

Shaping the future

The result is that nowadays a new production is in operation and it is expanding.
