The Al Taweelah alumina refinery operated by Emirates Global Aluminium (EGA) has delivered sustained production over the past three months despite the pandemic.
EGA considers the three-month period of full-capacity output as a mark of completion for the ramp-up of Al Taweelah since it was established in April 2019. The plant has an annual capacity to produce 2mn mt of alumina, which serves as 40pc of the feedstock for EGA’s aluminum smelters.
The $3.3bn refinery employs more than 570 workers. EGA is the only aluminum producer in the UAE and sold 2.6mn mt of cast aluminum in 2019.
