EMAL is a central pillar of Mubadala’s strategy to create global industrial champions in sectors where the UAE has a sustainable competitive advantage.
EMAL currently supplies 280 customers in 36 countries with high-quality aluminium. Advanced infrastructure at the Al Taweelah site provides customers with guaranteed, reliable and sustainable production and distribution. A purpose-built wharf at Khalifa Port shortens the supply chain of raw materials direct from sea to smelter.
Approval of a $4.5bn investment for Phase II, combined with the original $5.7bn Phase I joint venture between Investment Corporation of Dubai and Mubadala, makes EMAL one of the largest industrial projects in the UAE outside the oil and gas sector and one of the key projects leading the diversification of the UAE’s economy.
EMAL uses the most advanced technologies available worldwide to reduce emissions in line with Environment Agency Abu Dhabi requirements to minimize its carbon footprint. EMAL has created 2,000 direct jobs, which will rise to 3,000 upon completion of Phase II with Emiratization at the core of its employment strategy. The company has also introduced scholarship programs to provide technical training for local graduates with guaranteed job opportunities. EMAL's community engagement includes open days for the local community and support for social, sports and cultural organisations.
In June 2013, Mubadala and the Investment Corporation of Dubai signed an agreement to integrate the businesses of Dubai Aluminium (DUBAL) and EMAL into a jointly-held, equal-ownership company called Emirates Global Aluminium (EGA). The new company will be the fifth-largest global aluminium company by production upon completion of EMAL Phase II in 2014.
