Abu Dhabi’s Kezad to house new $204m aluminium facility

Kezad and Kings Aluminium executives were at the groundbreaking ceremony. The facility will transform virgin aluminium and aluminium waste into high-quality reusable materials

Kings Aluminium Industries has started construction on a AED750 million ($204 million) aluminium manufacturing and recycling facility in Khalifa Economic Zones Abu Dhabi (Kezad).

The facility will be built on 100,000 sq m of land leased from Kezad Group for 50 years, the UAE state-owned Wam news agency reported. The company 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 Kings Aluminium facility aims to localise the manufacturing of various supply chains, utilise local raw materials, enhance environmental sustainability in the production process, and promote circular economy.

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

The company said it will use the latest manufacturing and recycling technology to efficiently process molten aluminium metal, and billets, as well as repurpose various aluminium waste products.

“The facility’s proximity to EGA will enhance the efficiency of our industrial ecosystem while reducing its operational cost and environmental impact through shortened supply chains and collaborative operational strategies,” Mohamed Al Ahmed, CEO of Kezad Group, said.
