Steel is the most recycled packaging material in Europe.
Because steel has magnetic properties, it can be easily recovered from all efficient waste streams.
Recycling saves resources (iron ore, coal, limestone) and reduces CO2 emissions.
Steel is a permanent material that can be infinitely recycled without any loss of quality
Steel is the most recycled packaging material in Europe and across the world.
100% of all recycled steel packaging is reused to make new steel
In Europe, recycling infrastructures have been in place for a long time so are well-established and highly efficient
79,5% of steel packaging is recycled in Europe (2016)
The industry aims to achieve an average European recycling rate for steel packaging of 80% by 2020
