  • Aluminum can facts
  • 1)Aluminium is the most abundant metal found in the earth's crust. However, it is difficult to isolate because usually it is 'mixed in' with other elements. You can find aluminium in most rocks, vegetation and soils.
  • 2)Aluminium is the most common metallic element on earth, making up about 8% of the earth's crust, concentrated in the outer 16 km. Only oxygen and silicon are more abundant.
  • 4)Over the past 25 years aluminium cans have become about 30% lighter. Thinner, stronger sections are now being used with less metal, less energy and more savings in weight.
  • 5)95% less energy is used when making an aluminium can from recycled material compared to raw materials - this represents a huge reduction in greenhouse gas emissions!
  • 6)Recycling one aluminium can saves enough energy to run a television for three hours. Used aluminium drink cans can be recycled and back on supermarket shelves as new drink cans in as little as 60 days (or 2 months).
