Environmental sustainability and aluminum industry
Aluminium industry supports the fundamental concepts on which environmental sustainability is based: technical development and innovations that make life easier for present and future generations and respect nature. Aluminium is one of the most sustainable materials in the world and is also highly recyclable. During the recycling process it loses none of its intrinsic properties and uses just 95% less energy than creating the same amount of primary aluminium.
Aluminium in food packaging industry
Thanks to its properties, aluminium represents the ideal material for packaging. In particular aluminium foils are widely used in food industry because they act as a total barrier to light, gases and liquids and extends the life of foodstuffs. In addition, aluminium meets the needs of large distribution chains and food industry that always pay attention to eco-friendly products.
During the third quarter of 2018 the demand for Europe’s aluminium foil has surged to record levels. “These good results are based on a unique combination of improved domestic demand and particularly high demand from outside Europe” said Guido Aufdemkamp, Executive Director of EAFA.
