Alupro launches roadmap to increase aerosol recycling

In the future, non-beverage packaging, including aerosols, face mandatory recycling targets; 50% for aluminium and 85% for steel by 2030 under Extended Producer Responsibility (EPR). Alupro has made a commitment to supporting the aerosols value chain in achieving these targets.

This report presents the details of research carried out by Resource Futures on behalf of the UK Aerosol Recycling Initiative that defines the roadmap for the industry to meet this challenge, the article states.

This research answered four key questions:

  1. Where are the greatest losses of aerosols from the recycling stream and why
  2. What are the greatest obstacles to increasing aerosol recycling?
  3. What are the potential solutions that enable increased recycling?
  4. What are the likely costs and readiness levels of the industry?
