KEZAD launches recycling and production facility

Khalifa Economic Zones Abu Dhabi (KEZAD Group) and UAE-based Green Metal Industries have announced the signing of an agreement for the establishment of a new special steel recycling and production facility in KEZAD.

To be developed with an investment of AED 367 million ($100 million), the plant will utilise new recycling technologies like meltshop, refining facilities (AOD/VOD/VD), multi-product continuous casting, and a rolling mill, for converting metal scrap into high-quality products for diverse industrial applications, including construction and infrastructure developments.

Spanning over 116,000 square metres in KEZAD Industrial Area (KEZAD al Ma’mourah), the facility will primarily source raw materials locally and process them in Abu Dhabi and hence it will also serve as a catalyst for sustainable development and innovation in the construction industry across the Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC) and the wider region.

The plant, whose construction has already started, is expected to start commercial production in Q1 2025, and is expected to generate employment opportunities, stimulate economic growth, and foster innovation in the region. 

The plant will be leveraging advanced recycling technologies, thereby it will be playing a crucial role in reducing carbon emissions and will leave a positive impact on both the local community and the global effort towards sustainability, according to KEZAD Group.

Mohamed Al Khader Al Ahmed, CEO of KEZAD Group said: “We are pleased to welcome Green Metal Industries to the KEZAD ecosystem.

“The company’s innovative approach to recycling metal is in line with our aims of creating a sustainable industrial ecosystem within KEZAD in line with the Abu Dhabi Industrial Strategy.

“The manufacturing of high-quality materials such as Austenitic, Ferritic, Duplex, Martensitic grades of Stainless steel, as well as low and high alloy steel grades, locally in Abu Dhabi will support the growing demand for sustainable steel products in the country and the wider region.”
