Aluminum cans history

   Aluminum doses have first appeared in USA in 1935.
   Since then until nowadays, cans have evolved much in terms of weight, became much lighter which makes them the title of most innovative and sustainable packaging.
   Aluminum cans are 100% recyclable, which means that are economically and environmentally efficient, and can be recycled indefinitely.
   Aluminum cans are most recycled packaging in the world
   a recycled dose get back on the shelf in about 60 days.
   Aluminum in which they are produced, is the most valuable of recyclable materials, making their recycling economically efficient.
   Much of the amount of recycled aluminum, returns in factories producing cans. In Europe, the cans are produced from recycled aluminum in 50%

Durability:


   Cans are the lightest package, which means: reducing energy consumption in transport, fewer emissions and substantial reduction of carbon footprint
   The thickness of an aluminum can is equal to the thickness of a hair
   Due to low weight, manufacturers no longer use the same quantity of raw materials for manufacture of a can. Nowadays, a can weighs 40% less than in 1970 when it was first produced

EXAMPLE: 24 empty cans = 1 empty bottle

Logistics:

   In a cubic meter goes more than 2.5 cans than in any other packaging. Which means less transportation required less fuel, fewer emissions, ease traffic

Example: In a truck of 40 tons fit 36.250 liters in cans and 19.333 liters in bottles.
