Our approach

Emirates Global Aluminium has developed technology in the United Arab Emirates for over 25 years. Today our latest home-grown technology is among the most efficient and competitive in the global aluminium industry.

We have used our own technology for every smelter expansion since the 1990s, including the construction of Al Taweelah, which was the world’s largest single-site smelter when it was completed.

We have also retrofitted all our older production lines with our own UAE-developed technology.

EGA’s research and technology development focuses on continually improving the aluminium smelting process. As we increase efficiency, we reduce the amount of electricity required in the smelting process, saving costs and reducing environmental impacts.

In 2016, EGA became the first UAE industrial company to license its own large-scale industrial technology internationally.

Through research and development, EGA makes a practical contribution to achieving ‘UAE Vision 2021’, driving growth through knowledge and innovation.
