BMW AG and Emirates Global Aluminium PJSC have struck a deal for the first aluminum produced using solar power, a milestone for both their energy-intensive industries.

The Middle East’s biggest aluminum maker will supply 43,000 metric tons per year of solar aluminum to the German carmaker in a deal worth at least 100 million euros ($121 million), the two companies said in statements on Tuesday.
