Emirates Aluminium is located at KIZAD (Khalifa Industrial Zone Abu Dhabi) at Al Taweelah, Abu Dhabi. The smelter complex covers a site of 6km2 and is being built in two phases. $5.7 billion was invested in Phase I with construction beginning at the end of 2007. Phase I was completed early in 2011, ahead of time and on budget. A dedicated project team oversaw the successful delivery of Phase I. EMAL’s core values were fully integrated into the project, which included a strong commitment to environmental protection and health and safety.

Before construction began EMAL undertook an environmental assessment and carried out a wildlife translocation exercise to protect local fauna and flora. EMAL also invested heavily in the latest technology to minimize its environmental impact. At the peak of construction of Phase I the workforce reached around 19,000. During construction EMAL achieved a very low LTIFR (Lost Time Incidents) record of 0.02 validating its commitment to health and safety at work.

In 2011 EMAL announced an additional $4.5 billion investment for its Phase II expansion. A ground breaking ceremony was held in September 2011 and is due to be completed by the end of 2014. As a result of Phase II, EMAL will have the longest single potline in the world at 1.7 km and annual production capacity will almost double to 1.3 million metric tonnes. EMAL will follow the same, successful project template used to delivery Phase I and is committed to ensuring its core values remain at the heart of all that it does.
