Egypt Hydrocarbon Corporation (EHC) is the first world-scale Low Density Ammonium Nitrate (LDAN) facility in the Middle East and Africa, strategically located in Ain Sukhna south of the Suez Canal. The company was established in 2011 by Carbon Holdings to lead the industrial and mining division, producing a range of petrochemical products for the mining, quarrying and construction industries.
EHC’s state-of-the-art plant commenced production in 2017. The plant utilizes the most advanced technology available, consisting of three main units: Low Density Ammonium Nitrate (LDAN) production, Nitric Acid (NA) production, and off-sites and utilities. Today the facility has the capacity to produce 350,000 metric tons of Low Density Ammonium Nitrate (LDAN) and 300,000 metric tons of Nitric Acid (NA) annually.
EHC will continue to explore potential growth and development opportunities to create value for our customers and stakeholders with a particular focus on expanding our global presence to better meet the requirements of our customers.
