Gulf News reported that Emirates Aluminum has created 2,000 jobs that serve a growing clientele base of 280 customers in 36 countries worldwide as it plans to expand production capacity.

Emal uses DX reduction cell technology to produce 750,000 tonnes of aluminum annually with future potential to double output making it the largest smelter in the world.

Mr Saeed Fadhel Al Mazrooei president and CEO of Emal said that the USD 5.7 billion JV between Dubai Aluminum and Mubadala Investment Company makes Emal one of the largest industrial projects in the UAE outside oil and gas and one of the key projects leading the diversification of the UAE\'s economy.

Mr Al Mazrooei said that Emal supplies 280 customers in 36 countries with high quality aluminum which is available as sow, standard ingots, sheet ingots and extrusion billets. ISO9000 certified sow is traded on the London Metals Exchange.

An advanced infrastructure at the Al Taweelah site provides customers with guaranteed, reliable and sustainable production and distribution. The site includes a 2,000 MW power plant, carbon plant and flexible cast house with a wide variety of world class products. A purpose built wharf at Khalifa Port shortens the supply chain of raw materials direct from sea to smelter.

He added that Emal uses the most sustainable technologies available worldwide to reduce emissions in line with Environment Agency Abu Dhabi requirements to minimize its carbon footprint.

Emal has created 2,000 jobs with emiratization at the core of its employment strategy. The company has also introduced scholarship programs to provide technical training for local graduates with guaranteed job opportunities.

Mr Al Mazrooei said that Emal supplies the world with high-quality metal. Emal has established a global customer base that currently includes 280 customers in 36 countries with high quality aluminum which we plan to double upon completion of Phase 2. Although we supply markets globally, Emal has current focus markets on Asia, Europe, the Middle East and North America.

He said that Emal is currently in the advanced stages of conducting feasibility studies. Most recently we have awarded Feed for our Phase Two expansion. These studies will determine the amount of investment required for the construction of Phase Two which has the potential to double Emal\'s production to 1.3 million tonnes of aluminum per annum.
