Bahrain inaugurates first-of-its-kind Treatment Plant at Alba
Aluminium Bahrain B.S.C (Alba) inaugurated the Spent Pot Lining (SPL) Treatment Plant at its premises and announced the commissioning of the US$37.5 million zero-waste Plant, the first-of-its-kind in the region.
Built over 26,000 square meters with an annual capacity of 35,000 tonnes of SPL, the Proiect commenced construction in December 2019. A zero-waste process, it will enable Alba to transform the treated SPL into valuable product, which can be used in other industries such as cement. Having achieved more than 750,000 safe-working hours w/o LTI, SPL Treatment Plant Project was completed as per its timeline despite COVID-19 challenges.
