Written on: July 22, 2022 by SprayTM

Ball Corp. has launched a new aluminum aerosol can that incorporates up to 50% recycled content, as well as low carbon aluminum that has been smelted using renewable energy sources, such as hydroelectric power.

Called re:generation, it has half the carbon footprint of a standard can, according to the company. The reduced packaging weight is due to Ball’s ReAl technology, an alloy used to produce impact-extruded cans.

re:generation is 30% lighter than a standard aluminum can, while fully retaining its strength and structure, Ball Corp. said.
