UAE-based Emirates Global Aluminium (EGA) has announced the completion of a new AED15m (US$4.1m) pre-treatment and crusher facility for spent pot lining (SPL) in Al Taweelah, Abu Dhabi.

The facility is the largest of its type in the Gulf region and will be used to supply an alternative feedstock for cement companies in the country. In 2018 EGA supplied 41,000t of SPL to cement companies in the UAE, according to Arabian Business.

EGA had previously worked alongside third parties to process the material before delivery to
cement producers. “I am pleased that EGA now has its own infrastructure to transform SPL into a useful industrial feedstock, securing this solution and our partnerships with UAE cement companies for the long term," said Abdulla Kalban, CEO of EGA.
