Emirates Global Aluminium
Emirates Global Aluminium (“EGA”) is the world’s largest ‘premium aluminium’ producer by volume. Jointly owned by ICD and Mubadala Investment Company, EGA is the largest non-oil industrial company in the UAE. Its core operating entities are Dubai Aluminium PJSC and Emirates Aluminium Company Limited PJSC.
The aluminium sector, with EGA at its heart, is estimated to account for approximately 1.6% of the UAE’s national GDP. The sector is estimated to support over 60,000 direct, indirect and induced jobs within the UAE or about one in every 100 jobs in the country.
In 2019, EGA’s Al Taweelah alumina refinery began production and had produced 1.1 Million tonnes of alumina by the year-end. Once the full ramp-up is achieved, the refinery is expected to produce some two Million tonnes of alumina per year, enough to meet 40 percent of EGA’s alumina needs. In addition, EGA’s bauxite mining subsidiary, Guinea Alumina Corporation (“GAC”) mined 1.7 Million tonnes of bauxite ore and began exports in 2019. Once its operations are fully ramped-up, GAC is expected to produce some 12 Million tonnes of bauxite annually.
