#12.09.2013 Steel beverage can recycling reaches 89,4% in Spain
Latas de Bebidas, the Spanish canmakers association, has reported impressive beverage can recycling results in Spain.
A total of 6 000 million metal cans (steel and aluminium) were recycled in 2012, representing a 86,4% metal recycling rate. The recycling rate for steel cans reached 89,4%.
These rates show the efficiency of current recycling systems in place. APEAL had previously supported Ecoacero, the Spanish recycling organisation, Latas de Bebidas and other packaging and retailer organisations against the implementation of a deposit-refund system in Spain.
