Aluminium Closures

When recycling of aluminium closures is considered the advantages continue to stack up, as they are recyclable, without any loss of quality. In addition recycling of aluminium needs about 95% less energy compared with its primary production, with the corresponding savings in greenhouse gas emissions.  Due to the high scrap value of aluminium a considerable part, if not all of its collection and sorting cost, can be offset. Depending on the system, collection and recycling of aluminium is `good business’.
