  Aluminium in Packaging  
  Aluminium packaging via its unique combination of properties contributes to the efficient fabrication, storage, distribution, retailing and usage of products.  
     
  The aluminium beverage can is one of the most sustainable packaging solutions available, because it protects its contents, is cost-effective and can be recycled after use again and again.  
     
  Aluminium foil is by far the lightest ‘complete barrier’ material in a packaging composite. For example, a flexible fruit juice pouch or a beverage carton with a thin internal aluminium layer of only a few microns can be 20 times or more lighter than a traditional bottle.  
     
  Aluminium packaging is the “insurance” to protect the energy invested in producing, growing and processing food. It also ensures the additional energy used to get that food to us – in transport, retailing, shopping, storing & cooking – is not wasted.  
     
  30% of the food in developing countries perishes due to the lack of packaging. Aluminium has the best barrier properties to keep food and drinks fresh and safe and to avoid loss, guaranteeing a longer shelf-life, thus contributing to the sustainability of food and drinks products.  
     
  Speciality packaging of pharmaceuticals and other medical products protects and maintains sterile conditions during transportation and storage until use.  
     
  Aluminium helps to reduce the impact of used packaging. Aluminium is light and minimises packaging volumes.  
     
  The aluminium drink can is the most recycled beverage container in the world and most aluminium foil applications are fully recyclable as well.  
     
  The aluminium industry has a long tradition of collecting and recycling used aluminium products and the high economic value of used aluminium packaging is an incentive for continuous improvement in recycling.
