Supporting the sustainable production and use of aluminium.
As a material, aluminium helps make the world more sustainable. It supports transport efficiencies, cuts energy consumption and greenhouse gas emissions, boosts product longevity and reduces the demand on natural resources.
It’s therefore a sector DUBAL Holding is strongly invested in, through our 50% shareholding in Emirates Global Aluminum (EGA). One of the world’s largest ‘premium aluminium’ producers, EGA has led the UAE’s growth – from zero aluminium production 50 years ago, to now being the world’s fifth largest producer.
The company employs over 8000 people and supplies customers in more than 60 countries.
At the same as increasing aluminium’s sustainable use, EGA is also spearheading its sustainable production. The company aims to be one of the world’s most environmentally responsible metals and mining companies, by creating and implementing green solutions to many of the challenges encountered in aluminium production. In 2017, it became the first Middle East headquartered producer to join the Aluminium Stewardship Initiative.
DUBAL Holding has a shareholding in this Calcined Petroleum Coke (CPC) production facility located in the Shandong Province of China. Current production capacity is 840k tonnes per year of CPC achieved through two back-to-back expansions.
Production started with 280kt/year (Phase – 1)
Doubled capacity to reach 560kt/year (Phase – 2)
Capacity reached 840 kt/year (Phase – 3 , First Part) Studies underway for further expansions
