aluminum cans: the sustainable packaging solution

Ball is a global leader in innovative, sustainable metal packaging for beverage, personal care and household products. We look at metal packaging with passion and purpose. The unique sustainability profile of metal packaging is one of its many advantages when compared with other packaging materials.

Infinitely recyclable and econmically valuable, aluminum unlocks the full potential of metal packaging to convey values and purpose along with a favorite drink. 
  • Cans are 100 percent recyclable and can be recycled infinitely with no loss of quality
  • With a 60 percent global recycling rate, cans are the most recycled beverage containers in the world
  • Cans have the highest scrap value, subsidizing the collection and recycling of other materials
  • Cans are recycled through a well-established and efficient infrastructure
  • Cans can be recycled and returned to a store shelf as a new can in just 60 days
  • Cans are stackable and have a high cubic efficiency, making them cost-effective to transport
  • Cans are lightweight, unbreakable and provide superior product protection
  • Cans chill faster
As the world's leading aluminum can manufacturer, we are more than a supplier. We are your sustainability partner.
