73% van de Europese huishoudelijke rigide metalen verpakkingen in 2011 gerecycled

03 februari 2014

The 2011 recycling rate for rigid metal consumer packaging (European average, EU 27+EFTA) increased by 2.8% to 73.0% (2010: 70,2%). The increase of 2.8% reflects a long-term trend over the past 20 years, during which the metal packaging sector has been able to improve its recycling results.
The extra recycled tonnage of 188kt of steel packaging and aluminium beverage cans in 2011 equals an increase of 7% over 2010, resulting in a total of nearly 2.9 million tonnes of metal being recycled back into packaging or into other useful products such as building parts, automotive parts or even into bicycles (Persbericht Metal Packaging Europe, 7 januari 2014).
