Privatization of Bulgaria’s chemical sector was completed in 2001 with nearly 99% of today’s revenues generated by the private sector. High volume production covers petrochemicals, fuels and motor oils, soda ash, ammonia, nitric acid, phosphoric acid, ammonium phosphates, ammonium nitrate, superphosphate, hydrochloric acid, phthalic anhydride, synthetic fibers, plastics and rubbers, solvents and paints, cosmetics, detergents etc. Sulphuric acid is also produced on a large scale as a by-product from metallurgical plants. The chemical industry is one of the leading industrial sectors in Bulgaria in terms of productivity, competitiveness and exports.
The Bulgarian Chamber of the Chemical Industry (BCCI) was established in 1994. It has 44 member companies representing more than 76% of production capacity. Most members are larger and medium size producers and 26 companies are implementing Responsible Care. BCCI is involved in the process of development and implementation of chemicals related legislation, negotiations with trades unions at the sector level, and is a member of Cefic. Key activities at the current time include implementation of the EU’s IPPC directive, REACH regulations and emissions trading scheme.
