Further demonstrating its corporate commitment to excellence through innovation, Dubai Aluminium DUBAL the entirely state-owned enterprise whose Jebel Ali operation ranks among the world's largest single-site primary aluminium smelters will again participate in the industry platform offered by the TMS Annual Meeting and Exhibition TMS 2012. Held this year at the Walt Disney World, Orlando, Florida, USA from 11 to 15 March, the focus of TMS 2012 is again on providing materials science and engineering professionals the opportunity to network, present research, share industrial applications and introduce innovation the aim being to leverage synergies that will progress research and development activities towards applications that offer global solutions.
With this in mind, two senior executives from DUBAL will present technical papers at TMS 2012, both of which will also be published in Light Metals 2012. The titles and topics of the presentations are as follows:
"The successful implementation of DUBAL DX Technology at EMAL Michel Reverdy Technology Transfer Manager will present this paper, which outlines the fast-track, in-house development of the technology plus the relatively rapid installation and commissioning of 756 DUBAL DX Technology cells at EMAL Phase I, the normalisation of which was achieved without incident.
DX+, an optimized version of DX Technology Abdulla Al Zarouni Technology Development Manager will present this paper, which describes the continued self-development of proprietary aluminium reduction technologies at DUBAL, specifically the evolution of DX+ Technology and its selection for implementation at EMAL Phase II.
DUBAL will also have a stand at the exhibition component of TMS 2012. In keeping with the theme of the company's progress through technological innovations, the key messages projected across all media, including the exhibition graphics and collaterals, will highlight the specific benefits offered by high amperage DUBAL's Reduction Cell Technologies. These include superb productivity at exceptionally high metal purity levels; greater energy-efficiency which contributes to energy conservation and associated operating cost reductions; reduced environmental impact through lower fossil fuel consumption and reduced carbon consumption; and fully engineered versatility, which allows for enhanced operating capability plus inherent potential for developing even higher amperage performance capacity.
Commenting on DUBAL's involvement in TMS 2012, Abdulla Kalban President & CEO of DUBAL says: "In our opinion, the annual TMS meetings offer a strong and credible forum for sharing technology-related information with a broad audience representing diverse stakeholder groups," says "As in prior years, our primary objective as a participant at TMS 2012 is to raise awareness in the industry that DUBAL is much more than a producer of primary aluminium. To the contrary, DUBAL is also a developer of superior technologies based on thorough and ongoing research into process and system improvements."
