A chemical plant is an industrial process plant that manufactures (or otherwise processes) chemicals, usually on a large scale.

The general objective of a chemical plant is to create new material wealth via the chemical or biological transformation and or separation of materials. Chemical plants use specialized equipment, units, and technology in the manufacturing process. Other kinds of plants, such as polymer, pharmaceutical, food, and some beverage production facilities, power plants, oil refineris, natural gas processing and biochemical plants, use many technologies that have similarities to chemical plant technology such as fluid systems and chemical reactor systems.

Petrochemical plants (plants using chemicals from petroleum as a raw material or feedstock) are usually located adjacent to an oil refinery to minimize transportation costs for the feedstocks produced by the refinery.
