Emirates Aluminium “EMAL

Emirates Aluminium “EMAL” is a joint venture (JV) between Dubai Aluminium Company Limited (DUBAL)  Mubadala Development Company (Mubadala). The project was established in February 2007 to construct what will become the world’s largest single site aluminium smelter complex.  The project will be built in two phases and utilize DUBAL DX technology. Phase one began production in December 2009 and once finished EMAL will produce 750,000 tons of aluminium per annum, and 1.4 million tons annually at the end of phase two.  The aluminium complex, a 6sq. km. site in  Khalifa Port and Industrial Zone in Al Taweelah, half way between Abu Dhabi and Dubai, will produce primary aluminium with a product mix of sow, standard ingot, tee ingot, extrusion billet and sheet ingot.

Being the largest industrial project in the UAE outside the oil and gas industry, the project will encourage economic diversification, creating downstream opportunities.  This development will benefit the UAE economy, employing more than 18,000 local and international contractors/staff during construction and approximately 2,000 people direct employment during operations.

EMAL adheres to strict environmental standards set by the Abu Dhabi Environmental Agency, with state-of the-art emission control equipment, including sulphur-dioxide scrubbers, the latest potroom gas treatment technology, the best-available gas turbine systems, and cooling towers to eliminate thermal stress on local marine life. 

As part of its commitment to support UAE institutions by promoting them locally and internationally, and in recognition of the vital role in the overall development, Emirates Post has issued a set of commemorative stamps, in addition to a distinctive Souvenir Sheet.
