Emirates Global Aluminium’s heritage is in aluminium smelting, the midstream of the aluminium value chain. In 2019, we began production at our Guinea Alumina Corporation bauxite mining project in the Republic of Guinea and Al Taweelah alumina refinery in Abu Dhabi. These projects transform EGA into an integrated global aluminium producer creating value from mine to metal.
Bauxite is the ore from which aluminium is derived. Bauxite ore is refined into alumina, a white powder which is the feedstock for aluminium smelters. Smelting produces liquid aluminium, which is cast into the wide range of primary aluminium products which EGA supplies. Our customers are mostly semi-fabricators that are part of the supply chains of end user industries from aerospace to construction.
