UAE firms present papers at forum.
Innovation, production quality and collaboration were highlighted
by UAE aluminium smelters Dubai Aluminum Corporation (Dubal) and
Emirates Aluminium (Emal) at a specialist forum in Tasmania, Australia.
Papers delivered at the 10th Australasian Smelting Technology Conference
by the UAE firms detailed inhouse research and development projects.
Dubal, one of the world's largest single-site smelters, delivered
four papers of which two were presented by Maryam Mohamed Al Jallaf,
senior manager for process control, potrooms and cell lining. The papers
were "Pushing the frontiers of anode current density at Dubal"
by Ali HAM Al Zarouni, Al Jallaf and Arvind Kumar; and
"'Impact of TiB2 granules on cathode wear and metal
quality" by Al Jallaf, Margaret Hyland, Barry Welch and Al Zarouni.
The other two Dubal papers were presented by Abdalla Al Zarouni, senior
manager for technology development, namely: "Dubal high amperage cell technology from DX to DX+" by Ali HAM Al Zarouni, Abdalla Al
Zarouni, Nadia Ahli, Lalit Mishra, B Kakkar, David Spencer and Michel
Reverdy; and "Dubal's experience of low voltage PFC emissions" by Ali HAM Al Zarouni and Abdalla Al Zarouni. The Abu
Dhabi smelter Emal, owned jointly by Dubal and Mubadala, had its
representative David Spencer presenting a key research paper entitled
"Commissioning of Emal Smelter" by Salman Dawood Abdulla,
Walid Al Sayed, B K Kakkar and Spencer. The two firms also sponsored the
welcome reception for delegates to the event. Speaking at the reception,
Al Jallaf reiterated that the Dubal-Emal strategy-driven vision was to
produce 2.5 million tonnes per annum by 2015. Al Jallaf highlighted that
Dubal was investing both in developing new technology and upgrading
existing technologies so as to maintain a competitive edge. She also
underscored its capabilities in the transfer of technology using Emal
Phase I to illustrate the point. Ali Al Zarouni said that this
year's meeting offered a credible forum for sharing
technology-related information with an international audience
representing diverse stakeholder groups. "As a company, we thrive
on innovation and collaboration," he stated. "Global events
such as these always provide a great opportunity for us both to learn
from others and share our own expertise, which in turn raises awareness
of Dubal-Emal's technology-related capabilities."
