Aluminium Cans and the Circular Economy

Aluminium cans are a packaging solution that perfectly fits the principles of the Circular Economy, promoting sustainable resource use and minimizing environmental impact.

What is the Circular Economy?

The Circular Economy is an economic system with a unique model of production and consumption. It involves activities like sharing, leasing, reusing, repairing, refurbishing, and recycling. These activities aim to extend the lifespan of raw materials and products for as long as possible.

How do aluminium cans relate to the circular economy?

When the Circular Economy talks about recycling and extending the lifespan of products as long as possible, aluminium cans fit this concept perfectly. Aluminium cans can be completely recycled indefinitely. The cans we use today may have been recycled many times over hundreds of years, still maintaining their quality.

The ability of aluminium cans to be endlessly recycled helps reduce the need for new resources, as well as cutting down on energy use and greenhouse gas emissions in the production process.

Aluminium Loop CANs show environmental and social responsibility by collecting all our used cans for recycling into new, same-quality cans, creating a truly circular recycling loop. This process also significantly reduces post-consumption waste.

How to be sure the cans are actually recycled…

The collection and recycling process for Aluminium Loop CAN is transparent and verifiable. The number of consumed beverage cans collected for recycling matches the amount produced, measured by weight. These cans are then recycled into raw materials (aluminium sheets) to produce new cans.
