Tanarmu Chemical Industrial Plc, a Chinese-owned company, has acquired a license to mine for bromine in Afdera, Afar Regional State. Previous surface and subsurface exploration discovered significant bromine deposits in the area. The company is gearing up to extract bromine, a component of fertilisers, pesticides and phramaceutical products, in the form of hydrobromic acid. It plans to export the bromine to China. The Ministry of Mines & Petroleum expects to earn an income of 45 million dollars annually, based on Tanarmu's feasibility study. The Ministry has permitted tax-free privileges for the company's import of machinery and chemicals until the start of production.
