Stemming the tide of waste
Humans produce tonnes of plastic waste every year – and the volumes keep increasing. In response to this alarming situation, the EU introduced Directive (EU) 2018/852 to toughen and raise the targets for using recyclable packaging materials. The directive calls for the use of recyclable materials and support for a sustainable circular economy.
Aluminium packaging already exceeds the EU’s recycling targets – and with over 220 aluminium recycling plants in Europe, we’re well-equipped for things to improve even further.
Aluminium is a recycling champion
Current recycling rates speak for themselves. Aluminium already tops the list, and the recycling options for this material are far from being exhausted. Meanwhile, plastics recycling often suffers from a lack of resources and methods, and the sheer variety of plastics in use makes it hard to sort them properly. No industrial-scale solution exists for laminate tubes. They simply cannot be recycled.
Aluminium tubes are infinitely recyclable – with no loss in quality.
Taking responsibility together
By choosing our aluminium tubes, you too can help drive positive change in waste management.
