Kings Aluminium to Set Up US$200 Million Aluminium Facility at KEZAD

To transform virgin aluminium and aluminium waste into high-quality reusable materials

Khalifa Economic Zones Abu Dhabi – KEZAD Group, the largest operator of integrated and purpose-built economic zones and Kings Aluminium Industries today announced the commencement of construction for a state-of-the-art aluminium manufacturing and recycling facility in KEZAD.

With a total investment of AED 750 million by Kings Aluminium Industries, the facility in KEZAD will be spread across 100,000 square metres of land leased from KEZAD Group for a 50 year tenure.

The facility will source its raw material from Emirates Global Aluminium, one of KEZAD Group’s anchor tenants in the Metals sector. EGA operates the region’s largest Aluminium smelter in KEZAD.

The project marks a significant step in the UAE’s efforts to localise manufacturing of various supply chains, utilise local raw material, enhance environmental as well as sustainability aspects in the production process, and promote the circular economy.

The facility will transform virgin aluminium and aluminium waste into high-quality reusable materials, reducing the carbon footprint associated with aluminium production.
