Top 4 facts about recycled aluminium cans

Half of all aluminium cans are recycled

That's a total of 105 million cans a year. This is enough to build more than 70,000 Boeing 737 airplanes - almost 10 times the total number of 737's ever build!


2

Saves a lot of energy!

The recycling of cans saves enough energy to power more than 4.4 million European homes for an entire year. If all cans were recycled, this figure could be doubled…


3

Mining avoided

Recycling of aluminium cans not only saves energy. It also avoids the mining of new Bauxite ore used for aluminium production. Every year, recycling avoids nearly 5 percent of the world's total mining of Bauxite - and that's just from recycling aluminium cans.
