Global Market for Aluminium Aerosol Cans Declines Slightly

Global Market for Aluminium Aerosol Cans Declines Slightly | Aluminium packaging | Scoop.it
“AEROBAL’s secretary general Gregor Spengler does not find the figures particularly disturbing: “After years of unabated growth it is only natural that there is consolidation in the market that can then simply lead for once to a slight decline in demand and production. If one considers the extremely difficult economic situation worldwide and the general political situation and takes the record level from last year into account at the same time, this small halt in growth is not a disaster for goodness sake.”Demand for aluminium aerosol cans stagnated in Europe but this was not a major surprise after several years of sustained growth in a market that continues to show per capita consumption rates at record levels. Russia and the markets in Asia and South America, and in particular the BRIC countries, were unable to meet their ambitious goals. The US market also showed a weaker trend in the first half of the year; however, there are already signs for an improvement in the second half of the year.The lion’s share of all aluminium aerosol cans produced continues to go into the market for deodorants and perfumes and the market share here is stable at 80 per cent. Compared with the previous year’s figures, there was a noticeable decline in the food sector, which was just over ten per cent. This sector did not live up to what was expected of it, particularly in Europe. However, there was a clear increase in the production figures for the pharmaceutical sector where growth was only just short of being double-digit. The markets for household and technical products also bucked the trend.Overall, at AEROBAL, whose members account after all for over 70 per cent of global production of aluminium aerosol cans, one is nourishing quite justified hope for a quick return to the road to success. Global demand improved slightly at the beginning of the second half of the year so that it appears possible that there might even be slight growth for the whole of 2015.The ever-smaller lot sizes being demanded increasingly from the client side are a challenge for the industry. This leads not only to increased retooling but at the same time increases the complexity of production over the whole process chain. “I am sure that with their expertise, their modern manufacturing facilities, their flexibility and their innovative capability our members will successfully face these challenges as they have done in previous years,” says AEROBAL’s president Giorgio Aliprandi confidently. “This also applies to the increased customer interest in weight savings, the use of new alloys or the use of recycled materials. Our World Aluminium Aerosol Can Award demonstrates what remarkable solutions AEROBAL companies have already developed here. Other examples of innovative cans can also be found on our website at www.aerobal.org or in our free online magazine CANS, which can be ordered via CANS@aerobal.org.”AEROBAL is also quite confident when it comes to the question of possible competition from plastic aerosol cans. Plastic cans have so far only been used in a few niche markets. However, aluminium aerosol can manufacturers must be on their guard and counter this potential alternative with the obvious benefits of the aluminium can. As a recognised permanent material it is appealing with its excellent, unlimited recyclability without any loss in quality and the high material recycling rates achieved in practice. Aluminium cans do not suffer from material fatigue, exhibit better barrier properties and are compatible with all common propellants and contents. Since more than 50 years they have ensured the safe use of aerosols by end consumers worldwide. Moreover, consumers perceive aluminium as a high-grade material which differentiates it both visually and haptically from plastic and results in enhancement of the brand at the point of sale.More info:www.etma-online.org

Following years of continuous growth during which the production figures for the aerosol can industry raced from one record to the next, the market has now finally taken a pause for breath. AEROBAL, the International Organisation of Aluminium Aerosol Container Manufacturers, reported a small decline in production worldwide of one per cent year-on-year for the first half of 2015.

Is aluminium foil the new PTT?  UK foil recycling is half that of Germany and only just ahead of France and Spain. The differences are mainly due to collection services and communications.

 

As UK local authorities extend collections beyond the quick wins on weight - the measure which determines official recycling rates - to lighter materials that, in fact, have higher CO2 and energy footprints, foil collections are rising.  Since recycling reduces the energy used by 95 percent in aluminium packaging that's important.

 

And the good news is that it's also high value.  But we shouldn't take our eye off the need to increase recycling rates for aluminium drinks cans, which are already widely recycled by local councils.

 

So we must all try harder!

Novelis reports progress in aluminum recycling

Novelis reports progress in aluminum recycling | Aluminium packaging | Scoop.it

Company achieves 49 percent recycled aluminum inputs and has doubled its recycling capacity since 2010.December 22, 2015 Recycling Today StaffAtlanta-based aluminum rolling and recycling company Novelis has published its 2015 sustainability report, detailing what it says is significant progress toward increasing recycled aluminum use and using natural resources more efficiently. At the end of fiscal 2015, the company says it has achieved an average of 49 percent recycled aluminum inputs, up 19 percentage points from the baseline years of 2007-2009, and a reduction in water use intensity by 22 percent.Over the past five years, Novelis says it has doubled its recycling capacity, helping to reduce its greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions by 13 percent from baseline. Recycling aluminum produces 95 percent fewer GHG emissions and requires 95 percent less energy than primary aluminum production, enabling Novelis to achieve lower GHG emissions despite increasing global production capacity, the company says.“Novelis’ commitment to sustainability is fundamental to our success as the global leader in aluminum rolling and recycling,” says Steve Fisher, president and chief executive officer, Novelis. “Our continued focus on sustainability enables us to provide the lower carbon, high recycled content products our customers demand and provides a source of competitive advantage in the markets we serve.”The report highlights other company achievements from fiscal 2015, according to Novelis, including: The opening of the world’s largest and most technologically advanced aluminum recycling center in Nachterstedt, Germany, which can process up to 400,000 metric tons of aluminum scrap annually. This facility advances Novelis’ progress toward increasing recycled inputs, will save 3.7 million metric tons of carbon dioxide emissions a year and sets a new global standard for aluminum recycling.Supplying lightweight automotive aluminum for the Ford F-150, America’s best-selling truck, thereby eliminating 700 pounds from the vehicle and making it highly fuel efficient. Supply for the truck also involves a highly innovative closed-looped recycling system, ensuring manufacturing scrap is recycled in a closed loop between Novelis and Ford.Continued expansion of the company’s portfolio of certified high-recycled aluminum products, including beverage can sheet and the introduction of evercycle™ for food containers. The evercycle aluminum sheet, which is certified by SCS Global Services to contain 100-percent-recycled aluminum, represents a breakthrough in the food containers category, which has been made historically from primary aluminum-based alloys or lower amounts of preconsumer recycled content, according to Novelis.Since 2011, Novelis says it has invested approximately $2 billion to expand recycling and production capacity. The company says it looks forward to applying its new capabilities to the fullest extent, driving operational excellence and delivering the highest quality, sustainable products to its customers for years to come, helping them achieve their own sustainability objectives and adhere to evolving carbon constraints around the world.Improving water efficiency, which is critical to Novelis’ operations, particularly in drought-impacted areas of the world such as Brazil. In FY15, Novelis’ plant in Pindamonhangaba, Brazil, made significant water efficiency improvements, including automation of its industrial and drinking water systems, helping the company to reach an overall 22 percent reduction in water intensity. Novelis says it continues to make progress in multiple areas of its operations, including reducing GHG emissions, energy and water intensity from its baseline.Novelis aligned this report to conform to the Global Reporting Initiative (GRI) G4 Sustainability Reporting. The Global Reporting Initiative (GRI) G4 guidelines are the world’s most widely used framework for sustainability reporting.

Reliable data is the first rule of target setting - without it the whole process is spurious. So the news that streamlining the PRN process has made Aluminium recycling statistics more representative has to be welcome.  The news that this also means the 2015 target probably will be met is even better.

 

But have reforms gone far enough?

Brazil leads aluminium can recycling

Brazil leads aluminium can recycling | Aluminium packaging | Scoop.it
“The Brazilian Aluminium Association (ABAL) and the Brazilian Association of Highly Recyclable Cans Manufacturers (ABRALATAS) has reported that in 2014 the country recycled 289,500 tons of aluminium beverage cans out of the 294,200 tons available in the market, a growth of 12.5% over the previous year. Thus, the recycling rate for aluminium beverage cans reached 98.4%, keeping Brazil as the world leader since 2001. According to data of the two entities, 22.9 billion of packs were recycled last year, which corresponds to 62.7 million / day or 2.6 million/hour.According to ABAL’s Recycling Market Committee coordinator, Mario Fernandez, the recycling industry in Brazil has grown and matured: "For over ten years we have been the country with the highest rate of aluminum cans recycling worldwide, sustaining a performance of over 90%. This demonstrates both the maturity level and the structure for the Brazilian recycling market. This is an increasingly outstanding market for the industry, the society and the environment. "For Renault Castro, CEO for Abralatas, “Maintaining the recycling ratio close to 100% demonstrates that the model, which is a benchmark for drawing up the National Solid Waste Policy, has consolidated itself and serves as an example for a low-carbon economy, also generating jobs and income, according to the objectives to be achieved at COP-21 in Paris.” Economic and environmental advantagesIn 2014 alone, collecting aluminium beverage cans injected R$ 845 million in country´s economy, thus contributing to generating income and jobs for thousands of waste pickers. Moreover, the recycling activity consumes only 5% of electrical energy, when compared to the primary metal production process. This means that recycling 289,500 tons of cans in 2014 allowed savings of 4,250 GWh/year for the country, a figure that corresponds to the annual residential consumption of 6.6 million people in two million homes.”
