100% Nucan-PCR aluminium

Nussbaum is proud of being the innovator of the world’s first monobloc aluminium cans with unbeatable CO2 reduction of 96%, made from 100% used-beverage-can scrap. For the Nucan-PCR alloy, we exclusively use empty drink cans, which are returned by consumers to the collection points for recycling. After collection, the drink cans are pressed and converted into aluminium slugs, the starting material for our cans. No virgin aluminium or post-industrial-recycled material - such as production scrap, cable wires or lithographic plates - is added.

The geographical proximity between the collection point, the aluminium processor and Nussbaum, which is less than 150km, optimally supports the sustainability goal.


Refillable Screw Cans, Shaker Cans and Deo Roll-On Cans complete the green “From Waste to Can”-product portfolio.


With our “Recycling Aerosol Can” we have been awarded the German Packaging Award 2020 in the category sustainability and an ADF Innovation Awards 2021 Certificate in the category “Concept of the Year”.
