TASHKENT, (AsiaPulse via COMTEX).

Navoiazot, one of Uzbekistan's largest chemical enterprises, has exceeded the forecast parameters for the three quarters of 2009.

The launch of the nitrogen-phosphorus fertilizer facility was an important event in the life of the enterprise this year, UzA reported. Ammonium sulfate and ammonia water produced there were sent to agricultural enterprises. The company also produces chemicals required for gold complexes.

Serious attention is paid to the efficient use of production capacities and introduction of energy-efficient, environmentally safe and highly-productive technologies, as well as expanding production of competitive chemical products.

"Upgrading the outdated equipment has helped us improve economic figures," said deputy chairman of Navoiazot Nusrat Soliyev. "According to the modernization program, 14 projects are scheduled, most of which have already been implemented."

Thanks to gradual improvement of the quality of products, the number of foreign customers is growing. Ammonium nitrate, nitronic fiber, acetic acid, methanol and chlorine are exported to Russia, Ukraine, Turkmenistan, Iran, Pakistan, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Afghanistan and Tajikistan.

In the first half of this year, products worth US$33 million exported to foreign markets.

Currently, the company plans to build a facility for production of 50,000 tons of PVC and 32,000 tons of caustic soda.
