Open our can and find out all the ins & outs of the short-term advantages and long-term effects of RecyCan®.
Thanks to our reproduction chain, we can guarantee that our cans are made of 100% recycled steel. Through an innovative process of detinning and melting, RecyCans contain 100% recycled steel. This makes RecyCan® a conscious, trustworthy and sustainable choice for ecological brands or product lines. They are equally commited to a better, cleaner and greener world by applying a no-waste policy for packaging. Therefore, our cradle-to-cradle, or should we say, can-to-can-cycle, fits their ideals perfectly.
Although a RecyCan® differentiates itself from a regular can due to its sustainable character (100% recycled steel), you wouldn’t see or feel the difference. The innovation is primarily in the process, so the cans have exactly the same characteristics, possibilities and safety as regular cans. This means that RecyCan® recycled cans can be used for all kinds of applications, such as food and cosmetics. If you choose products packaged in a RecyCan®, you can help us change the world, one can at a time. Same quality, great impact!
We created RecyCan® to effectively close the loop of primary steel packaging from consumer waste and save valuable resources. This means that as long as we are involved, we can reproduce high-quality steel packaging for all sorts of products. After the unique process chain, the raw material is ready to be re-formed, and after use and disposal, the whole process starts all over again. That’s what we call ‘closing the loop’, which creates generations of cans and cans for generations.
Yes, we know, the best thing would be a world without packaging. But organic food and preservative free cosmetic products need good packaging to keep the product safe and fresh. It effectively protects products from light, air and damp. This way the RecyCan® product line takes ecological awareness to the next level, as it achieves circularity with recycled products that can be recycled for eternity.
Anyone who collects cans contributes to protecting the environment. The cleaner the cans, the easier it is to recycle them. Therefore, the cans should be empty and the labels removed insofar as possible. Also flattened cans take up far less space in trucks, which reduces the number of trips. Do you want to know more about what we do with the cans once you’ve collected, separated, cleaned and turned them in? We’ve put a nice little video on this website, explaining the whole process step by step.
