Emirates Global Aluminium, EGA, and GE Power yesterday signed a Memorandum of Understanding, MoU, to work together on a 100-day programme to reduce EGA's nitrogen oxide (NOx) emissions under the UAE Government Accelerators programme.

Abdulla Kalban, Managing Director and Chief Executive Officer of EGA, and Joseph Anis, President and Chief Executive Officer, Power Services for the Middle East & Africa, GE Power, signed the MoU, in the presence of Dr. Thani Ahmed Al-Zeyoudi, Minister of Climate Change and the Environment, at the Government Accelerators headquarters in Dubai.

Both companies are working in partnership with the Ministry of Climate Change and the Environment to secure tangible goals relating to the environment. The project is one of the first five under the Government Accelerators programme launched by Vice President, Prime Minister and Ruler of Dubai, His Highness Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum.

EGA's goal is to reduce its NOx emissions by 10 percent by the end of February. NOx is also emitted by motor vehicles and contributes to poor air quality. Success in the project will improve air quality by the equivalent of removing 280,000 cars and their emissions from the UAE's roads.

Under the MoU, GE will work with EGA to implement an accelerated programme to minimize NOx emissions at EGA's power plants in Al Taweelah and Jebel Ali, while also contributing to improving further the operational efficiency of the two plants and reduce fuel usage. – Emirates News Agency, WAM - http://www.wam.ae/en/news/general/1395304970317.html
