agrobiochim abandoned chemical plant - stara zagora (bulgaria) - 4 photos


Агробиохим - Стара Загора

Photos of the abandoned Agrobiochim chemical plant near Stara Zagora (Bulgaria).

When it was active, this plant used to produce ammonia, nitrogen fertilisers, plastics, caprolactam and silicon dioxide for rubber and pharmaceutical industries.

Tons of nitrates, asbestos, dioxins and other dangerous chemicals are just sitting there. This is an environmental disaster and no-one wants to pay for the clean-up (Agrobiochim was a semi-state-owned company that went bankrupt).

After taking those photos I got arrested for trespassing by some sort of armed Bulgarian Military Police. If you meet our friend Vasil (the guard who arrested us for trespassing), say hello to him!

After an afternoon of interrogation at the Stara Zagora Police station, I was released and no charges were filed.

Before letting me go, the police chief told me: "if anything blows-up in this country, we'll be looking for you" !
