Egypt has been blessed with a great reserve of phosphate ore that is the source of the element phosphorous which is one of the most essential elements for the existence of life on Earth.


Phosphorous in the form of phosphate is one of the macro-elements (Nitrogen - Phosphorous - Potassium) needed for plant growth. Long time ago, farmers were concerned about Nitrogen fertilizers only for the cultivation of their crops but with the advancement of science it has been confirmed that phosphorous plays an important role in the normal growth of the plants and consequently increases the yield and productivity of the farmers.


With the increase of the number of population across the globe, the need of phosphorous will inevitably be a must to feed the increasing demand of the nations.

Egypt is considered one of the largest exporters of phosphate rock in the world . Nevertheless, the need to add substantial value to the Egyptian mineral resources has to be done by processing this treasure to high analysis products .


WAPHCO has done all the efforts to make this dream come true and to literally convert dust to gold backed up with wise management and the great experience of its team who have the faith and dedication to reach the long sought goal.



Press Release WAPHCO is pleased to announce the incorporation of Abu Tartour for Phosphoric Acid "AT-PHOS," the new private free zone company that will execute the phosphoric acid production Project in Abu Tartour. Please visit to know more about the Project.

El Wady For Phosphate Industries and Fertilizers


A Product to meet the soil's need!



WAPHCO has selected Abu Tartour Phosphate Mine (the largest phosphate mine in Egypt and one of the largest in the world) to be its downstream destination. Abu Tartour phosphate mine has an infinite reserve of high quality phosphate ore that is already being exported to the whole world. The site is well established with all infrastructure and facilities that are ready for any world class project(s). All the licenses and permits have been granted for the establishment of almost all phosphate industries.




El Wady Phosphoric Acid Production Project is of a world class scale. It will strategically make use of Abu Tartour Phosphate Ore to produce Merchant Grade Phosphoric Acid (MGA) with international specifications suitable for the production of high analysis phosphate and compound fertilizers and much more.


El Wady has selected Prayon Technologies of Belgium and K-Technologies of USA to be its phosphoric acid licensors. additionally, El Wady has preferentially selected Outotec of Germany to be its Sulfuric Acid Plant licensor.
