Aluminium giant to promote latest developments to the global industry
United Arab Emirates, 13 February 2016: Emirates Global Aluminium (“EGA”) will showcase the UAE’s innovation credentials internationally this month, by presenting a series of technical papers at The Minerals, Metals & Materials Society 145th Annual Meeting and Exhibition (“TMS 2016”). The annual event takes place this year in Nashville, Tennessee, USA from 14 to 18 February; and will again gather business leaders, engineers and scientists in the minerals, metals, and materials fields from around the world.
Speaking ahead of TMS 2016, Abdalla Al Zarouni (Director, Technology Development & Transfer: EGA) said, “TMS is the main technical forum for the aluminium industry worldwide and gives participants the opportunity to share technical research and collaborate with industry peers to help shape the future of the aluminium sector. The leading player in the Middle East and one of the top five primary aluminium producers in the global aluminium industry, EGA implements the most modern processes and technologies – many of which are developed in-house. TMS therefore also provides opportunities to meet potential clients for EGA’s proprietary smelting technologies. EGA has participated at TMS for several years to take advantage of these benefits.”
A total of six papers will be presented by EGA at the event, along with two joint papers developed in collaboration with the University of New South Wales (“UNSW”), entitled:
EGA’s vision is to provide the global economy with sustainable material of the highest quality, building a legacy of excellence for the UAE and the world. From inception in 1979, EGA has been committed to continuous innovation in aluminium smelting so as to produce the world’s best quality aluminium products while achieving maximum operating efficiencies. The proprietary reduction technologies developed in-house by EGA over the years have made the company a respected competitor in this sector. Indeed, EGA’s new-generation DX+ Technology and DX+ Ultra Technology rank among the most efficient reduction cell technologies currently available.
