Priority sectors of economy

Chemical industry

The volume of industrial production in the industry in 2018 amounted to 55.6 billion tenge, or 156.2% compared to 2015 (35.6 billion tenge), 113.5 % to the volume of 2016 (49.0 billion tenge), 97.7% to the volume of 2017 (56.9 billion tenge).

In January –November 2019, the sub-sector produced commodity products in the amount of 51.3 billion tenge, the physical volume index amounted to 92.2%.

The decrease is due to a reduction in oxygen production by 18.4%, sulfuric acid in monohydrate-by 16.2%. Chemical products are mainly intended for the mining and metallurgical industries (acids, gases, explosives, etc.).

The main enterprises of the sub-sector of the chemical industry are Temirtau Electrometallurgical Plant LLP (production of carbides, ferrosilicon manganese), Tau-Ken Temir LLP (silicon production), Track LLP (production of greases), Maxam Kazakhstan JSC (production of explosives), Egofom LLP (production of flexible polyurethane foam (foam rubber).

The technology for the production of calcium carbide involves the formation of substandard fractions requiring utilization, in connection with this it is planned to produce importers substituting and export-oriented products: vinyl butyl ether, vinylin, vinyl flooring, household chemical products, maleic anhydride, unsaturated polyester resins, in prospect synthetic rubbers. The implementation of these projects has a multiplier effect due to the fact that these products are used in chemical, mining and metallurgical, construction and other industries.

Metallurgy
