Chemical products are mainly used in metallurgy, construction and light industry. Currently, a cryolite plant with an annual design capacity of 30,000 tons is being built in Yovon. It is based on local raw materials. This enterprise is being built on the basis of modern technologies and in the future will fully meet the annual needs of the State Unitary Enterprise "Tajik Aluminum Company" with aluminum fluoride and cryolite.
In the future, it is planned to build sulfuric acid plants with a production capacity of 100,000 tons. and superphosphate 150,000 tons. per year.
