Benefits of Aluminum
- Approximately 57% of aluminum is recycled in the United States and this number is increasing.
- Aluminum is an excellent thermal conductor, so liquids packaged in aluminum require less time and energy to cool down than glass or plastic (which are both insulators) for faster and more efficient chilling.
- Light is an enemy of wines, beers, and other photosensitive products. Aluminum is totally impervious to light providing for improved shelf life and product freshness.
