Efficiency and Sustainability of Aluminum Cups and Trays

Compared to other materials, aluminum better protects and preserves food.  The barrier effect of aluminum significantly reduces food waste, water consumption and greenhouse gas emissions, so it’s not only efficient and effective in protecting and preserving the product, it also protects and helps preserve the environment. 

The recycling of aluminum containers saves up to 95% of the energy used when compared with its initial production cycle.  The recycled aluminum is mainly used in industrial applications, such as construction or insulation.  Therefore, the material used in a short lifecycle with the consumer, ends up in a long life cycle until it will be recycled again.
