Control of Potline Scrubber & Fugitive Emissions for Aluminum Smelters Course
May 15–18, 2016 • Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates

A highlight of the Control of Potline Scrubber & Fugitive Emissions for Aluminum Smelters Course is a half-day plant tour at Emirates Global Aluminium (EGA)’s Al Taweelah Smelter (formerly EMAL). The tour will take place on the morning of Tuesday, May 17. The site visit will include:

  • A walk-through in potline 3 where EGA operates their flagship pot technology DX+ (>450 kA) in the world’s longest potline. During the visit EGA specialists will explain their environmental emission management, hooding management, and boosted suction system that gives them excellent results.
  • A walk-through in the potline 3 Gas Treatment Center (GTC), which is the largest of its kind in the world. You will also see the unique duct configuration that is specially designed to cool the exhaust gases to normal operating levels (<130 °C).
  • A visit to the control room in potline 1 and 2 where EGA will make some presentations
  • A walk-through in a GTC in potline 2 where you also will meet a seawater scrubber for SO2 control
