They grow as the most attractive option for manufacturers and consumers as they are the only ones capable of ‘real recycling’
Metal packaging is currently the main example of a sustainable economy from an environmental point of view, as regards the food industry, becoming an increasingly attractive option for manufacturers and consumers.
The objective of betting on increasingly less polluting packaging, due to the demands of a citizenry that is more aware of the environment, plays in favour of metal packaging, which is a model to follow in terms of circular economy.
And the thing is, metallic containers can be recycled not only completely, but they also can be reused in a continuous process, since they do not suffer deterioration in each recycling cycle. It is known as ‘real recycling’. Thus, once treated, the metallic containers return to become raw material, to be transformed again into the same product or another.
This circle of sustainability makes metallic containers the perfect ‘green packaging’ for the food industry, which also values the safety and long conservation of canned products, due to their ability to retain vitamins, essential nutrients and antioxidants.
Therefore, its growth in recent years and the important innovative commitment made in the last decade by the can-making sector, achieving lighter metallic containers by 30 percent on average, with new openings, designs, decorations and even compatible with the use in microwave.
Responding to this new horizon for metallic packaging is Autorema’s challenge, adjusting to customer demands with innovative tailor-made solutions, hand in hand with Industry 4.0. Our commitment is to offer the most advanced engineering for companies to increase their leadership in their sector.
