The key features of the Russian chemical sector include the following.
• Availability of its own raw material base. The raw materials are natural sources (salts, oil, gas, phosphorites, sulfur, etc.) and processed products from other industries (gas, oil, etc.).
• The possibility of expanding the raw material base, thanks to which it is possible to save natural resources. The resulting raw materials are used in other industrial sectors. Created chemical fertilizers help to increase yields in agriculture.
• The possibility of solving many environmental problems. Thanks to modern chemical technologies, it is possible to neutralize or recycle harmful waste.
• Application of high-tech technologies. Of particular importance are new materials for the pharmaceutical, space and aviation industries. These are fiberglass, carbon fiber and other materials that differ in lightness, strength, heat resistance and other important characteristics.
