The chemical plant is an industrial building in Tropico 4. While other industrial buildings require supplies of raw materials, the chemical plant only requires a source of electricity to produce expensive chemicals.
- Medicine Production: For $7,500 and 10 megawatts of power, the plant can begin producing medicines. This increases the quality of all clinics, hospitals and sanatoriums by 20.
- Nutrient Additives: For $10,000 and 5 megawatts of power, the plant can switch from producing ordinary chemicals to "nutrient additives," which are essentially the same thing but more expensive.
- Sweat Shop: The default work mode. Employees here work backbreaking 14 hour long shifts.
- Easy-Does-It: Employees here are given an easier time. Their job quality increases by 10 but they work 25% less.
