ABOUT US On a mission to accelerate industry development in Egypt and beyond

Carbon Holdings is a privately-owned petrochemical company, established in 2008. We develop, own and operate midstream and downstream petrochemical projects to supply the manufacturing, mining and construction sectors globally. Strategically located on the Red Sea south of the Suez Canal, Carbon Holdings’ projects produce the raw materials that are an essential feedstock for basic industries such as plastics, packaging, building materials, automotive parts and much more. Carbon Holdings’ projects are transforming the Egyptian economy as they are catalysts for industrial development and job creation.

Carbon Holdings currently owns and operates two petrochemical facilities based in the Suez Economic Zone: Egypt Hydrocarbon Corporation (EHC) and Oriental Petrochemicals Corporation (OPC). In addition, Carbon Holdings is at an advanced stage of financing a third project, Tahrir Petrochemicals Corporation (TPC), which will create one of the world’s largest single-train naphtha cracker facilities producing a range of base petrochemicals. Due to start production in 2023, TPC is set to transform the region's industrial and economic landscape.

At Carbon Holdings, we put our employees at the center of our business. We are one of the largest employers in the Suez Economic Zone, currently employing more than 1,500 staff at our EHC and OPC plants. TPC is expected to directly provide long-term careers for an additional 3,000 people. All our facilities have an excellent safety record and our staff enjoy competitive salaries, generous benefits, and extensive training and development opportunities.
