An aluminium can is known as a single-use container for packaging that is made up mainly of aluminium. It is widely used for foods and drinks such as beer, baked beans, or soup. It can also be used for products like oil, chemicals, and other liquids. The global manufacturing of aluminium can is 180 billion annually. It constitutes the largest single use of aluminium globally.
The use of aluminium in cans began in the year 1957. Aluminium offers higher malleability that resulted in the ease of production. The inside of the can is always lined by spray coating with an epoxy lacquer or polymer to protect the can from being corroded by any acidic contents like carbonated beverages. The benefits of aluminium over steel (tinplate) can include:
It is lightweight.
It comes with easy-open aluminium end, thus, eliminating the need for a can opener.
It does not rust.
Procurement Resource provides an in-depth cost analysis of Aluminium Can production. The report incorporates the manufacturing process with detailed process and material flow, capital investment, operating costs along with financial expenses and depreciation charges. The study is based on the latest prices and other economic data available. We also offer additional analysis of the report with detailed breakdown of all cost components (Capital Investment Details, Production Cost Details, Economics for another Plant Location, Dynamic Cost Model).
This report presents an analysis of capital and operating costs of a -based industrial plant. For those interested in economic assessments considering other plant locations, Procurement Resource offers optional analyses that complement this report.
