University and Vocational Education Centers have specific industrial degrees. There is a dense tissue of auxiliary services and sanitary centers. Weather is perfect for chemical industry.

Main productive areas are non-ferric metallurgy (mainly copper), electric power plants, LNG terminal, diverse gas products (propane, butane, oxygen, hydrogen, etc.), oil refining, petrochemistry, hydrocarbon additivation, fertilizers, ammonia, chlorine derivatives, acids, bases and salts.

More than 10.000 people have a direct relation within Huelva's chemical industry.
