Aluminium Cans are the beverage cans made of aluminium. Beverage cans are made of aluminium (75% of worldwide production) or tin-plated steel (25% worldwide production). Worldwide production for all beverage cans is approximately 475 billion cans per year.

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. Being so difficult to isolate, aluminium wasn't discovered un


til 1807 by Sir Humphry Davy. Then it wasn't until 1886 that an economically viable process was developed to extract aluminium.

An aluminium beverage can weighed 16.55g in 1992 and 14.7g in 2005. This amounts to an 11% reduction in the raw material being used. In recent years, innovative design and packaging have done much to benefit can drinkers. Widespread innovations include the easy-drinking wide mouth can and the convenient, economical can multi-packs like t


he 30 pack. In Japan the aluminium bottle has been developed with the advantage that it is resealable. Also embossed cans (mostly beer) cans are now available.

Aluminium can is a container for packaging made primarily of aluminum. It is commonly used for foods and beverages but also for products such as oil, chemicals, and other liquids. People all like aluminium cans because Drinks stay fresher and last longer in aluminium cans. Aluminium cans are the quickest container to chill so, once in the fridge, you're virtually guaranteed a great cold drink – fast. They don't break so there's less chance of


wasting your drink. They are 100% recyclable and, because they remain in one piece when opened, the chances of recycling the whole container is much higher for cans than for any other beverage container.
