Aluminium Bahrain (Alba) announced it was recently granted environmental permission for its Line 6 Expansion Project from the Supreme Council for Environment, Kingdom of Bahrain.

The environmental permission, vital to Alba 's Line 6 Expansion Project, was granted based on detailed environmental and social impact assessments carried-out by a consultant, and overseen by the Line 6 expansion team.

Alba 's Line 6 Expansion Project will make it the largest single site smelter in the world upon its completion.

Expected to begin production in early 2019, the project will boost the company's annual production by 514,000 metric tonnes upon full ramp-up, bringing its total production capacity to at least 1,450,000 metric tonnes per year.

Remarking on the development, Alba 's CEO, Tim Murray said: "I would like to express my sincere thanks to the Supreme Council for Environment, Kingdom of Bahrain.

"The receipt of this permit reaffirms the commitment and support of the Government of Bahrain towards this landmark project, which will bring significant benefit to the country."
