Potential for Aluminium as a sustainable packaging material

Aluminium scores better against glass, paper and plastic on many sustainability parameters.

Read these:

 Al can be infinitely recycled, with over 70% of all Al produced in the last 100 years still in use!

 Recycling Al saves 90% energy compared to producing virgin metal

 Its impacts on soil and water are far lower compared to say, plastics

On most of the sustainability parameters, Al scores better than glass, paper and single use plastics. Even on the rest, it is on par with others.

Is it time that the packaging industry gave a much higher emphasis on Aluminium? What do you think?

If you wish to give a hi5 to Al for packaging, you can do so at E2Expo – https://lnkd.in/g7Ac9iy
