Metal Recycles Forever
Emballator Metal Group is part of EMPAC, a central organisation for the European metal packaging industry. Together we work under the motto Metal Recycles Forever. With Metal Recycles Forever we aim to emphasise the many advantages of metal and the benefits of recycling.
It is important that we are careful in our use of Earth’s natural resources. Metal is a permanent material that can be recycled forever. This means that by far the greatest environmental advantage of metal over other materials is its endless recyclability without compromised performance. Metal retains the same quality irrespective of how many times it is recycled. Recycling ensures efficient resource use, which in turn creates a circular economy. The metal is not lost when a product reaches the end of its life cycle. It is simply transformed into something else through recycling, which means that metal retains its value forever.
This makes metal a resource-efficient choice, as through recycling it preserves Earth’s natural resources, reducing energy consumption and emissions compared to the production of new material.
Metal has a long history and there are a number of advantages to using metal packaging, since it offers many possibilities and application areas. Metal is a strong and durable material that, among other things, can withstand high pressure and extreme temperatures. Whether it concerns strong chemicals or highly flammable products, metal is the best solution. Metal packaging also has good barrier properties and an ability to protect and preserve the contents of the packaging, which makes it a good alternative in, for example, food and drink production.
But best of all, metal is 100% recyclable. Below we list a few of the advantages:
Strong – Metal is a strong material, which makes it good for products that need to be stored safely.
Safe – Tough and robust.
Durable – Both the metal can and its contents are stable over time because it does not age and remains sealed.
Recyclable – Metal is a sustainable environmental choice as it is 100% recyclable.
Fulfils requirements – With UN approval, metal is the material of choice for transporting hazardous goods.
Fire safety – Metal is difficult to ignite, which protects the contents from fire.
Chemical resistance – Strong chemicals and solvents are no match for metal.
Logistics – Metal packaging can be stacked and packed effectively for transport.
Transport safety – Metal’s strengths make it a safe choice on the roads.
Boosts sales – Effective profiling and packaging designs that stand out in stores.
