Emirates Global Aluminium (EGA) is a leading aluminium player with interests across the value chain from bauxite mining through to alumina refining and primary aluminium smelting. The company has plans for significant local growth and international expansion.
EGA is owned equally by Mubadala and Investment Corporation of Dubai. The company’s core operating assets are its two smelters in Jebel Ali, Dubai (DUBAL) and Al Taweelah, Abu Dhabi (EMAL), whose combined production of 2.4 million tonnes per annum (tpa) places EGA among the largest primary aluminium producers in the world.
As the UAE’s newest industrial champion, EGA bridges the UAE to over 75 countries and more than 300 industrial customers. It is among the UAE’s leading non-oil export companies, and the largest exporter to key markets such as the US.
EGA’s core operating assets, the Dubai Aluminium (DUBAL) and Emirates Aluminium (EMAL) smelters, are located in Dubai and Abu Dhabi respectively. With a combined production of 2.4 million tonnes per annum (tpa), these assets place EGA among the largest primary aluminium producers in the world. Both smelters are committed to high standards of health and safety, and focus on reducing operational environmental impact and investing in broader social and economic development.
The combined smelting portfolio comprises high quality aluminium products in four main forms: re-melt ingot, billet, slab ingot and liquid metal. EGA also produces anode bars and bus bars, used in the electrolytic aluminium production process. Most of EGA’s annual production is value-added products, with about 90 percent of total production exported worldwide. The company’s key markets are Asia, the Middle East and North Africa region, Europe and the Americas.
EGA is currently developing Al Taweelah Alumina, a 2 million tpa alumina refinery adjacent to EMAL in Abu Dhabi, taking advantage of the world-class infrastructure of Khalifa Port and KIZAD (Khalifa Industrial Zone of Abu Dhabi).
EGA also owns Guinea Alumina Corporation (GAC), a mining development company focused on advancing its bauxite and alumina project in the Republic of Guinea (West Africa), which is currently at the Feasibility Study stage. In China, EGA is in the process of integrating two calcined petroleum coke production facilities into its portfolio to support its requirements for anode-grade carbon materials.
