Did you know that according to the International Aluminum Institute, aluminum is infinitely recyclable? Of the 1 billion tons of aluminum ever produced, about 75% of that is still in use. An article written by the National Geographic states that recycling old cans into new ones uses 95% less energy and produces 95% fewer greenhouse gas emissions than producing new cans entirely from scratch. In fact, the recovered aluminum processed in a typical year saves the energy equivalent of 1.3 billion gallons of gasoline.
With the growing demand for Bag on Valve products, manufacturing companies, such as Aurena Laboratories AB are looking for the most cost effective and environmentally sound materials to produce their products. Aluminum is the material of choice for pharmaceutical companies looking for a packaging container that gives a low ecological footprint.
8% of the Earth’s surface consists of aluminum and it is considered to be an almost unlimited metal resource.
Aluminum is a lightweight and flexible material, making processing and transportation energy effective and with little environmental impact.
Aluminum is recyclable, over and over again.
The aluminum qualities are unique; no other material obstructs light, air (oxygen), damp and germs.
