Tinplate cans meet the environmental requirements of the packaging materials

- Feb 26, 2018-

Existing containers include cans, aluminum cans, paper and plastic containers. These containers have different recovery characteristics, but the cans are better in recycling than other packaging containers.

Based on the international environmental management standard ISO-14000, the tin cans with low pollution, recyclability and resource-saving characteristics will have a broader space for future packaging.

1. Low pollution

Tinplate cans, which are the main raw material in tin cans, are actually environmentally friendly and can be naturally decomposed. Because iron cans naturally oxidize and return to their original state of iron oxide when they exist in the environment, The piles can be time-resolved and will not be left behind as environmental pollution. In the meantime, it is not necessary to cut down the trees while manufacturing the cans so as not to undermine the ecological balance.

2. Recyclable:

The can itself has a characteristic that other packaging materials do not have - it can be magnetically adsorbed, so that the magnetic separator can be used to separate the cans from the wastes by magnetic force, which can easily be used to recycle the trash The effect of 80% cans. The invention of the eco-cover not only makes the use of the cans safer and healthier, but also reduces the amount of garbage effectively and has direct and obvious benefits for the recycling operations.

3. Provincial resources:

Shredder equipment has been developed to remove other contaminated residues from cans, effectively removing more than 98% of contaminants and providing good quality scrap iron. In addition, the United States also pointed out that the existence of aluminum easy to open the lid is conducive to iron scrap remake, because it can reduce the amount of Hot Metal steelmaking, reducing the overall cost of steel manufacturing. In addition, in terms of energy conservation, the report pointed out that the use of tin scrap scrap steel production compared to iron ore per ton of waste scrap can save about 230m3 natural gas consumption, so cans of steel recycling process can reduce the global environment And energy impact, in line with future product trends.
