Novelis is the largest producer of aluminum beverage can sheet and the world’s largest recycler of used beverage cans (UBCs), recycling roughly 65 billion UBCs each year.
With state-of-the-art can sheet production lines and recycling centers on four continents: North America, South America, Europe and Asia, Novelis serves the most recognizable brands including Coca-Cola, Crown, Ball Corporation, Ardagh Group and ABInBev.
Beverage cans are, and will remain, the core of Novelis’ product portfolio. Working alongside our customers, we innovate to meet the ever-evolving preferences of consumers, whether for new shapes and sizes, alternative coatings or more. For example, Novelis is working closely with customers to develop and produce distinctive aluminum bottles, which offer the same portability, light weight and recyclability as aluminum cans, but with the added benefit of being re-closeable. In addition, Novelis is also working on tomorrow’s technology such as laminate can end stock coating to support our customers seeking to meet consumer demand for sustainable and clean coatings for can ends.
With an unmatched commitment to sustainability, Novelis is the leading buyer and recycler of used beverage cans (UBC’s) globally. Aluminum beverage cans and bottles are the model of sustainable packaging and, with an average “can-to-can” lifecycle of just a couple of months, a can that is recycled today can be back on store shelves in just sixty days. Making can sheet from recycled material is better for our environment, better for our customers and better for our business.
