Emirates Global Aluminium

Emirates Global Aluminium was founded in 1975 and has been innovating aluminium to make modern life possible. Today EGA is the world’s biggest ‘premium aluminium’ producer and the largest industrial company in the United Arab Emirates outside the oil and gas industry.

EGA is equally-owned by Mubadala Investment Company of Abu Dhabi and the Investment Corporation of Dubai. It is the largest company jointly owned by the two Emirates.

EGA is an integrated aluminium producer, with operations from bauxite mining to the production of cast primary aluminium. EGA operates aluminium smelters in Jebel Ali and Al Taweelah, an alumina refinery in Al Taweelah and a bauxite mine and associated export facilities in the Republic of Guinea.

EGA’s aluminium is the second largest made-in-the UAE export after oil and gas. In 2022, EGA sold 2.72 million tonnes of cast metal. EGA is the only UAE producer and makes the UAE the fifth largest aluminium producing nation in the world.

EGA has more than 400 customers in over 50 countries. In 2022, value-added products accounted for 78 per cent of EGA’s cast metal sales.

EGA’s aluminium is primarily used in the construction, automotive, packaging, aerospace and electronics industries.

Rio Tinto

Rio Tinto is a global leader in metals and mining. For 150 years, we have been looking for better ways to provide the materials the world needs, including aluminium, copper, iron ore and lithium, and now place the net zero transition at the heart of our business strategy  

Rio Tinto leads the aluminium industry with a large-scale, vertically-integrated business: bauxite mines and alumina refineries as well as smelters producing aluminium certified as responsible. We also produce some of the highest quality, lowest-carbon footprint aluminium in the world: the greenhouse gas emissions intensity of our managed Atlantic Operations smelters represents less than one-fifth of the industry average. As a fully integrated mining company, Rio Tinto has a unique vantage point of providing transparency and traceability into supply chains, and created the first sustainability label in the industry, the START label, that provides 14 ESG metrics so that customers and end-users have visibility into how their products were made.  

In addition, Rio Tinto is also working with the Governments of Canada and Quebec towards a deployment of the ELYSISTM zero carbon aluminium smelting technology at its Saguenay–Lac-Saint-Jean facilities with targets to have the technology available for installation from 2024 and the production of larger volumes of carbon-free aluminium approximately two years later.  

In 2023, Rio Tinto completed a recycling joint venture, which will allow us to build our supply of low-carbon aluminium in North America, providing customers with a fuller suite of aluminium products. This Matalco joint venture continues Rio Tinto’s investment in building its supply of low-carbon aluminium in North America. Previous investments include $1.1 billion to expand the use of its AP60 technology at its Arvida aluminium smelter in June 2023, $29 million to establish new recycling capabilities at the Arvida smelter in August 2022, and $188 million to increase billet production capability at the Alma smelter in July 2022, all in the Saguenay-Lac-Saint-Jean region of Quebec.
