The Metal Packaging Europe Life Cycle Assessment (LCA) study identifies the average environmental impact (s) of the life cycle of metal packaging products manufactured in Europe.
The report showcases the industry’s contribution to sustainable development, which is perfectly aligned with circular economy thinking. The LCA – which is ISO 14040/44 compliant – uses 2013 data, provided by the leading can makers and their suppliers, and covers the aerosol, food, general line, and speciality sectors.
For LCA modeling the Life Cycle Inventories (LCIs) of the production stages and some selected further life cycle stages of the average metal packaging produced in Europe are available.
The Metal Packaging Europe Life Cycle Assessment (LCA) study was conducted by RDC Environment, an independent international environmental consultancy firm, and peer-reviewed by Solinnen, an environmental consultancy specialised in LCA practices.
