UAE-based Green Metal Industries will set up a AED367 million ($100 million) special steel recycling and production facility in Kezad, Abu Dhabi.

Towards this, Khalifa Economic Zones Abu Dhabi – Kezad Group, the largest operator of integrated and purpose-built economic zones, and Green Metal Industries have signed an agreement.

The plant, the construction of which 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.
