August 2019

Aluminium Bahrain (Alba), the Bahrain-based aluminium smelter, will highlight a number of pressing topics including the challenges faced by the industry at the 23rd Arab International Aluminium Conference (Arabal) 2019, to be held later this year in the kingdom.

The event is being organised by Alba at the Gulf Hotel from November 19 to 21 under the patronage of HRH Prince Khalifa bin Salman Al Khalifa, the Prime Minister of Bahrain.

It will be held under the theme ‘Shaping the Future of Aluminium in the Arab Region’, said a statement from Alba. The conference will shed light on a number of topics such as ‘impact of current economic challenges on the aluminium industry’, ‘outlook for the global aluminium industry in light of depressed LME prices’, ‘energy efficiency and its impact on energy costs, ‘environment, sustainability and recycling’ and most importantly ‘Bahrain post Line 6’, it said.

Shaikh Daij bin Salman bin Daij Al Khalifa, chairman of board of directors, Alba, said: “It is our honour to have HRH Premier as the patron of this much-awaited event especially as it coincides with our company’s evolution to become the largest smelter in the world upon the full ramp-up of its Line 6 Expansion Project by July 31.”

“As a major player in the global aluminium field, we aim not only to address the market trends and challenges facing the industry but also provide the platform to offer solutions with some of the  industry experts,” he added.

Emerging as a global platform for the world aluminium industry leaders, the two-day conference is expected to attract more than 400 delegates from the whole spectrum of the aluminium industry.
