The Chairman of Alba, Shaikh Daij bin Salman bin Daij Al Khalifa, noted: "Bahrain, and Alba, have set many firsts in the region - with our SPL Treatment Plant, we have once again set the benchmark for sustainable development by transforming the Spent Pot Lining into value-added products. The ESG Project is our only way forward, and we have gone above and beyond to balance our economic gains with social returns. We are also pleased to have realized savings of US$6.5 million despite COVID-19 challenges, equivalent to 15% benefits, compared with SPL Treatment Plant's CAPEX of US$44 million.”

In addition, Alba's CEO Ali Al Baqali stated: "We must challenge the existing reality if we are to change the way we operate.". The challenges the world faces today can't be met without environmental sustainability. Our SPL Treatment Plant translates our mission to keep environmental safety as our top priority while doing more good for the community. The Supreme Council of Environment and the Ministry of Industry, Commerce and Tourism have continuously guided and supported us. We are grateful to Regain - the technology provider and to all our partners who have helped us turn our vision into reality."

Construction of the 35,000-tonne capacity facility, built over 26,000 square meters, began in December 2019. It is a zero waste process that Alba will be able to use to transform SPL into valuable products, such as cement. In spite of COVID-19 challenges, the SPL Treatment Plant Project achieved 750,000 safe-working hours with no LTI.
