Emal Hits 1,5 Mt Production Milestone

This is the fastest production achievement ever witnessed in the history of the global aluminium industry, with the last seven months producing 500000 t of aluminium alone. Saeed Fadhel Al Mazrooei, President and CEO of EMAL said: “Excellence in all we undertake is evident in the fact that not a single pot has been lost since inception, as well by the exceptional metal purity levels of 99,88 % and above.“ More importantly, the record production was achieved with over 10 million work-hours with zero Lost Time Injuries (LTI). This builds on the achievement of five million work-hours with zero LTI in 2011 and further demonstrates the belief and ownership of EMAL’s core “value of safety first, last, and always“. EMAL’s advanced smelter in Al Taweelah currently uses DX reduction cell technology to produce 750000 t of aluminium annually. (8/2012)
