N3937' E12539'
Namhung Youth Chemical Complex
Factory No. 297 [in Pyongwon]

North Korea has at least eight industrial facilities that can produce chemical agents; however, the production rate and types of munitions are uncertain. Presumably one or more of the agents [sarin, tabun, phosgene, adamsite, prussic acid and a family of mustard gases] comprising the basis of North Korean chemical weapons are produced at the Namhung Youth Chemical Complex and/or the Factory No. 297 in Pyongwon, probably a blood agent.
