Aerosol Cans made from 100% PCR aluminium

We are proud to present our most recent innovation – our aerosol can made from 100% post-consumer-recycled aluminium. It is the first of its kind containing no primary aluminium at all. The starting material used is mono-material aluminium scrap from consumer goods returned to the collection points for recycling. The collected scrap is pressed, converted into slugs and processed into aerosol cans by Nussbaum using the regular impact extrusion production process. For the first time Nussbaum has been able to implement a circular economy material flow.


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


Under the claim “From Waste to Can” we are planning further products made from PCR material. The range is to be extended with Screw- and Pill-Cans and flexible or rigid tubes.
