23 november 2015

New data released by EAFA, the European Aluminium Foil Association, confirms that recycling rates in Europe for alufoil trays and semi-rigid containers in 2013 reached about 55%. The previous reporting period (2010) saw that figure rise above 50%. Depending on the instructions to the consumers and the collection and sorting infrastructure in place, estimated recycling rates for alufoil containers vary significantly and range from over 85% in Germany to exceeding 65% in Italy, above 40% in the UK and 35% in France and Spain. Alufoil trays and semi-rigid containers are used in markets such as ready meals, ready-to-cook meat, poultry and fish and takeaway foods (Persbericht EAFA, oktober 2015).
