85% - Steel is recicling champion!

Recycling of steel packaging has reached 85% in Europe. And Italy is doing very well!


Europe has been recycling steel for a long time, so infrastructure is well established and highly efficient.

There’s a clear demand for steel scrap; it is needed for the manufacture of new steel, and so each of the 500+steel plants in Europe is already a recycling plant.

Choosing steel helps to keep recycling easy. Increased use and increased recycling rates of steel packaging reduce waste and save energy.





all collected steel is used again to make new steel.
