 Aluminum Bottle More Eco Friendly Than Glass

A lighter, resalable aluminum bottle that it hopes will replace glass bottles for many beverages, as it is more eco friendly has been developed by a consumer packaging company.

According to a report in The Presidio Buzz, the new aluminum bottle has been developed by Rexam, which is one of the world's largest consumer packaging companies.

Rexam uses a manufacturing process, DWI, or "drawn wall ironed," which uses substantially less metal than impact extrusion, a more common method.

The company claims that the low weight of their bottle, 20 grams (.75 oz), compared to 180-200 grams for glass, markedly decreases its carbon footprint, in the form of lower manufacturing and distribution costs.

About 45 percent of aluminum cans are recycled, versus a mere 25 percent for glass bottles.

Most aluminum cans have more recycled material than glass bottles. In fact, two thirds of the aluminum ever produced is still in use today.
