The Canmaker innovations 2020

Environmentally-conscious consumers are increasingly realising that aluminium and steel packaging offer many benefits, not least because of their infinite recyclability and the highest of recycling rates. Canmakers are in a strong position to exploit these requirements, but they must help their customers, the brand owners, with more innovation.

Ball Corporation has won the Can of the Year 2018 award for a drinks can that is challenging the plastics water bottle market. The award was announced at a gala dinner held in October 2018 during The Canmaker Summit in Venice, Italy.

The Canmaker innovations 2018

Innovations first reviews the winners and shortlisted entries to the last edition of The Canmaker magazine Cans of the Year Awards, which have recognised and promoted the industry’s developments since 1996.

All the packaging featured in this catalogue is made from either steel or aluminium, which are both infinitely recyclable without losing their properties, and therefore remain a permanently available resource for the future. About 80 percent of the metal ever produced is still in use today.

There is no other packaging material that is as truly sustainable as metal. Steel and aluminium recycling rates remain the highest, ahead of plastics, glass and cartons.

In fact, the higher the scrutiny and demands on packaging, the more that metal shines as the solution that meets the needs of today’s society without jeopardising those of future generations.

Innovations also features products by equipment and service suppliers that help canmakers achieve higher efficiency and savings, and many of whom will be exhibiting at Cannex in Guangzhou, China, on 15-18 May 2018, where the Cans of the Year will be also showcased.

The winners of this year’s edition will then be announced at The Canmaker Summit in Venice, Italy, on 10 October 2018.

Innovations recognises the best in metal packaging and welcomes you to the fascinating world of cans – packaging with no equal using a material like no other.

The Canmaker innovations 2017

Metal is the packaging material with the lowest environmental impact. It is the only truly sustainable material thanks to being infinitely recyclable without losing its quality.

Unlike other materials, metal’s properties make it a permanently available resource whose recycling rates remain the highest in the world, ahead those of plastics, glass and cartons.

There is no other packaging that preserves and delivers a product with such minimal use of resources and waste as metal cans.

Cans also provide energy-free preservation throughout the supply chain, faster filling speeds, and the longest product shelf life.

In fact, the higher the scrutiny and demands on packaging, the more that metal shines as the solution that meets the needs of today’s society without jeopardising those of future generations.

For many, innovation manifests itself in new, creative ideas and different ways of presenting products across markets. In the packaging industry we see it along the entire value chain: Easier to process or more functional resins; more flexible and versatile converting equipment; and creative packaging designs that make life more convenient for consumers.
