EGA's Jebel Ali smelter hot metal production has increased above 1 million tons per annum since 2010 and produced a record 1,045,255 tons in 2015 and with forecast total production of 1,065,280 tons in 2016. Jebel Ali Potrooms has also strived to minimize its environmental impact with significant effort to reduce the three main sources of GHG emissions; power consumption, anode carbon and CO2.eq emissions from anode effect PFC’s. Specific energy has decreased from 14.82 to 14.29 DC.kWh/kg, net carbon has reduced from 0.434 to 0.423 t / t Al and AE PFC emissions have reduced from 0.263 t to 0.071 t CO2.eq / t Al. This has resulted in reducing annual GHG emissions by 798,065 CO2.eq tons and was achieved despite increasing hot metal production by 63,266 tons since 2010. This achievement demonstrates EGA’s vision for operational excellence and continuing efforts to minimize environmental footprint.
