Aluminium Closures Boost Recycling

The recycling of aluminium screw-caps (closures) used for wine, spirits, water and olive oil is estimated at 40% throughout Europe.

The closures are separated and re-melted back into the aluminium stream without losing any quality.

The benefits are highlighted by the European Aluminium Foil Association (EAFA)’s Aluminium Closures – Turn 360 Campaign.

“Every additional increase in the recycling rate makes aluminium closures more and more attractive for winemakers and markets”, says Stefan Glimm, EAFA’s Executive Director.
