Exports of bauxite from our Guinea Alumina Corporation project have begun, completing EGA’s strategic expansion upstream in the aluminium value chain to create an integrated global aluminium giant.

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.

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.

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.
