Aluminium Bahrain B.S.C. (Alba) consistently ranks as one of the largest and most modern aluminium smelters in the world. Known for its technological strength and innovative policies, Alba enforces strict environmental guidelines, maintains a high track record for safety, and is widely regarded as one of the top performers on a global scale.
It supports numerous community oriented programmes and social activities that have underlined its status as one of Bahrain's leading industrial organisations that remains committed towards upholding its corporate social responsibilities. Alba's inception marks the beginning of Bahrain's strategy to diversify its economic base and reduce its dependence on oil. The aim was to establish an industry that would provide valuable export earnings, develop the country's resources and create training and employment opportunities for a large number of Bahrainis. Alba was therefore incorporated by Charter in 1968 and officially commenced operations in 1971 as a 120,000 tonnes per annum smelter.
Alba today produces more than 981,000 metric tonnes per annum of the highest grade aluminium, with products including standard and T-ingots, extrusion billets, rolling slab, properzi ingots, and molten aluminium. Around 50 percent of its output is supplied to Bahrain's downstream aluminium industry, with the rest exported to regional and international customers in the Middle East, Europe, Far East, South East Asia, Africa, and Americas.
The Alba plant comprises five reduction lines, two cast houses, three dedicated carbon plants, a 550,000 mtpa coke calcining plant, a water desalination plant, 11 fume treatment plants, a marine terminal, and a 2,249 MW ISO power plant, consisting of 4 power stations. The plant also features a 13 hectare 'green' oasis, with more than 15,000 trees and shrubs, a fruit and vegetable garden, an animal farm, and an artificial lake.
Alba's early success established a blueprint for other non-oil industries to follow, including a thriving downstream aluminium industry. Today, Alba is a major contributor to the social, industrial and economic development of the Kingdom of Bahrain, employing over 2,700 people, of whom around 84 percent are Bahrainis.
The entire plant operates to the Environmental Management System standard ISO 14001:2004 and the Occupational Health and Safety Assessment Series OHSAS 18001:2007. Moreover, the Casthouses, Calciner, and Marketing are also operating to the ISO 9001 Quality Management System. It is worthy to note that Alba was the first metals manufacturing company in Bahrain to receive the major upgrade - 2008 version of ISO 9001.
The company has won a number of awards including the inaugural Shaikh Khalifa bin Salman Al Khalifa Award for Industrial Excellence, the International Millennium Business Award for Environmental Achievement from the United Nations, safety awards from the British Safety Council and The Royal Society for the Prevention of Accidents, and a GCC-wide award for human resources development and nationalisation of the workforce.
The shareholders of Alba are Bahrain Mumtalakat Holding Company (69.38%), SABIC Investment Company (20.62%) and the General Public (10%).

DowDuPont brings together the complementary portfolios of Dow and DuPont, two innovative, science-based companies that hold leadership positions in the Agriculture, Materials Science and Specialty Products industries. Working together, we intend to create three strong, independent companies1 that will be more competitive than either company could be on its own and well equipped for science-driven, profitable, long-term growth.

They will each be better positioned than their predecessors to continue driving innovation to provide superior solutions for customers, and better serve communities around the world.

At the helm of the Emterra Group is Emmie Leung who oversees the overall operations, performance against key indicators and growth of the group of companies. Emmie has a knack for finding opportunities and building on them.
She founded the original company, International Paper Industries (IPI) in 1976 in Vancouver soon after graduating from the University of Manitoba with a BA in Commerce. She got the idea to start collecting used cardboard and other printed papers when she was walking around her Winnipeg neighbourhood one day and noticed that businesses were discarding these “valuable resources.” She moved to Vancouver to be closer to core transportation hubs and from that point on she has been a pioneer in the recycling and waste diversion industry in Canada.
IPI in its infancy was a one-person business – Emmie. She performed every job from driving the collection truck to sorting and baling materials, to operating the forklift to marketing and bookkeeping. When IPI started to expand into the municipal recycling services business, Emmie instigated the first ever ‘blue bag’ program to collect recyclables, a system that continues to be used in some municipalities throughout Canada. This early hands-on experience gave her insight into all aspects of the waste handling business, knowledge that she continues to draw upon today as CEO of the Emterra Group.
With the success of IPI as her launching platform, she expanded into Ontario in 1995 under the name Halton Recycling Ltd. and into Manitoba in 2003. Next she acquired a tire recycling operation, now Emterra Tire Recycling, and then a stale-dated and off-spec liquid disposal and consumer products destruction facility, Canadian Liquids Processors Ltd. Have a look at our corporate growth timeline.
Emterra Group is a company of four divisions offering municipal and industrial, commercial and institutional (ICI) customers a fully integrated approach to collecting, processing and marketing:
