EGA’s Al Taweelah alumina refinery has begun production, a major milestone in our strategic expansion upstream in the aluminium value chain. It is the first alumina refinery in the UAE, bringing new opportunities for people and other local industries.

EGA was the world’s largest ‘premium aluminium’ producer in 2018. The development of EGA since the 1970s has taken the UAE from no aluminium production to the fifth largest aluminium-producing country in the world.

Our lives would be very different without aluminium. It is thanks to the metal of the future that we live in great cities, can make instant connections and more. At Emirates Global Aluminium, we produce one in every 25 tonnes of aluminium made worldwide. 

EGA has focused on innovation for over 25 years. We have used our own technology in every smelter expansion since the 1990s. In 2016 we became the first UAE industrial company to licence our process technology internationally.

On a like-for-like basis, EGA already has one of the highest rates of Emiratisation of any major company. We focus on attracting the most capable people and providing them with opportunities to develop themselves throughout their careers.
