DUBAL invests millions in environmental projects and protection equipment
Within the last three years, DUBAL has invested approximately in excess of AED 650 million on various environmental projects and protection equipment within its massive smelter operations area.
"We, at DUBAL," said Mr. Mohammed Al Ghurair, Managing Director, DUBAL, "are committed to maintaining the highest standards of worker safety and environmental care and believe our practices must be at par with the best in the world. Had DUBAL not been proactive in its environmental and safety-first policies," he added, "it would have been difficult to establish and develop the residential and tourism community within three kilometers of DUBAL's operations."
Amongst the various projects initiated by the Aluminum giant is the installment of low NOx burners for gas turbines, which not only ensure that air quality is within the required local legislation, but also fall well below internationally recommended limits.
Other measures include a new state-of-the-art, technologically-efficient fume treatment plants for the Kestrel project, an automated Pot Dig-out facility which eliminates undesired employee's exposures, a Potline roof HF monitoring systems, which improve efficiencies in the processing of HF emissions.
