This partnership aims to support the development of Canibal beverage can collectors, expand the French network of UBC collecting equipment and increase their recycling rate.

Constellium’s Specialty Sheet division has agreed to recycle all aluminium cans collected by the Canibal network at its Neuf-Brisach plant.

Neuf-Brisach is the only fully integrated site in Europe with rolling, finishing and UBC recycling equipment.

Constellium is a European company involved in the production of aluminium for rigid packaging including beverage cans, food cans and closures for wines, spirits and mineral water.

Aluminium’s ability to be recycled indefinitely without losing its original properties makes it the material of choice for can manufacturers.

In France, the recycling rate for cans is 51% and 64% across Europe.
