(MENAFN Press) Committed to innovation through technology, yet equally dedicated to protecting the environment. This is the approach of Emirates Global Aluminium (EGA) - the jointly-owned, UAE-based aluminium conglomerate formed by Mubadala Development Corporation and Investment Corporation of Dubai - which will be promoted at this year's Water Energy Technology and Environment Exhibition (WETEX). EGA - which combines the businesses of two of the UAE's flagship industrial companies Dubai Aluminium (DUBAL) and Emirates Aluminium (EMAL) “ will continue the industry's Strategic Sponsorship of the event. In addition, a senior company executive will deliver a presentation on the strides made in reducing energy consumption through cutting-edge technology development



The EGA stand at WETEX 2014 will highlight the company's world-leading DX and DX reduction cell technologies developed in-house at DUBAL that, by operating at higher amperages, not only increase productivity, but also reduce the impact of smelter operations on the environment through improved energy efficiency and minimised emission levels. With annual production capacity due to reach 2.4 million metric tonnes in 2014, EGA ranks among the leading primary aluminium producers in the world, by volume. The company is internationally renowned for its premium quality, high purity products; and exports about 80 per cent of its production to countries across the globe. Moreover, it has also achieved some of the highest standards in environmental protection, from optimising raw material usage through effective energy-use management, to minimising environmental impact through stringent management of air emissions, effluent discharge and waste



EGA's support of WETEX 2014 will extend beyond sponsorship by sharing expertise and promoting best practice through participating in the seminars and round-table discussions being hosted in parallel to the exhibition. Tayeb Al Awadhi (Vice President: Power & Desalination) will deliver a presentation on how DUBAL has made significant efficiency gains by implementing an integrated approach, which includes high standards in safety, energy conservation and environmental and health management.





Held at the Dubai International Convention & Exhibition Centre from 14 to 16 April 2014, the focus of WETEX 2014 is on advanced technologies in the areas of energy (i.e. fossil fuel, nuclear, renewable, power generation, smart grids, efficiency, conservation); water (i.e. management, treatment, desalination, utilities); and environment (i.e. waste management, green buildings and CO2 reduction solutions). The event aims to bring together the scientific, engineering, technology, and management communities to facilitate strategic partnerships in pursuit of innovative and sustainable solutions that will support the efforts of governmental agencies and civic authorities in these three key areas.


About EGA, DUBAL and EMAL
Emirates Global Aluminium ("EGA") is a jointly-held, equal-ownership company formed by Mubadala Development Company of Abu Dhabi and the Investment Corporation of Dubai that will be incorporated in Q1 2014. EGA's core operating entities are Dubai Aluminium ("DUBAL") and Emirates Aluminium ("EMAL"), whose combined annual production capacity is set to reach 2.4 million tonnes per annum ("tpa") by mid-2014, which will make EGA the fifth largest aluminium producer in the world. The UAE-based EGA also owns Guinea Alumina Corporation ("GAC"), a strategic project to develop an alumina refinery and associated bauxite mine in Guinea (West Africa). In addition, EGA has plans for significant local growth and international expansion. DUBAL, where commissioning began in 1979, operates one of the world's largest single-site primary aluminium smelters. The DUBAL complex, built on a 4.75 square kilometre site in Jebel Ali, Dubai, comprises a 1 million tpa smelter, a 2,350 MW power station (at 30C), a large carbon plant, extensive casting operations (more than 1.2 million tpa), a water desalination plant, dock and other facilities. A quality-focused, customer-centred and innovation-drive organization, DUBAL holds ISO 9001, ISO 14001, ISO/TS 16949, ISO/IEC 20000-1, ISO/IEC 27001, ISO 29990, ISO 50001 and OHSAS 18001 certification. DUBAL also has investments in bauxite/alumina development projects in Brazil and Cameroon; and in a calciner plant in China.EMAL is designed to become another of the world's largest single-site primary aluminium smelters. The EMAL complex, housed on a 6 square kilometre site in Al Taweelah, Abu Dhabi, has been built in two phases. Phase I, which was fully commissioned by the end of 2010, is the world's largest greenfield smelter development and currently has a smelter capacity of 800,000 tpa. Commissioning of Phase II, comprising the world's single-longest potline (444 cells) with a design capacity of 520,000 tpa, began mid-September 2013. Full ramp-up is scheduled for completion by end-2014. Once fully operational, EMAL will have an annual hot metal production capacity of 1.3 million tpa. EMAL holds ISO 9001 accreditation and Nebosh certification in Occupational Health and Safety.The combined DUBAL-EMAL portfolio comprises high quality aluminium products in four main forms: foundry alloy (automotive applications); billet (construction, industrial, transportation and automotive forging); high purity aluminium (electronics and aerospace); and sheet ingot (packaging, lithographic sheets and the automotive industry). Busbars and anode bars are also made for the electrolytic process used to produce primary aluminium from alumina ore. Over 350 customers are served in at least 64 countries, predominantly in Asia, Europe, MENA region and the Americas.
