Join us on a journey to discover the unique characteristics of metal and its benefits for the packaging industry.
The metal packaging is recycled again and again. So it will always be available to future generations. This means that metal is a permanent material.
During the processes of recycling and reuse does not present any loss of its quality, regardless of how many times the material is recycled.
To date, in Europe, 74% of the metal packaging is recycled, making it the most recycled packaging material (source: MPE). In Spain this rate exceeds 85% thanks mainly to the magnetic properties of tinplate packaging.
The metal packaging industry is the perfect example of a circular economy, with metal being recycled forever into a permanent loop.
The metal packaging is unbreakable, resistant to physical aggressions and punctures, withstands extreme temperatures and pressure, provides a total barrier against light, gas and oxygen, preserves food perfectly and allows to offer products safe, do not require heat or cooling, thus saving up to a 70% in energy consumption, cans offer excellent optimization of space by being stackable, its easy handling reduces losses and costs in stores and homes, its sterilization process allows to preserve food without preservatives. Since the recovered metal (more than 70% in Europe) is used again for the production process METAL CANS AND CLOSURES ARE NOT CONSIDERED WASTE!
