Aluminum Nation Action Center

Aluminum is a key part of the nation's manufacturing base, generating hundreds of thousands of good-paying jobs, driving innovation and increasing energy efficiency in many markets. The Aluminum Association works hard every day to advocate on behalf of the $71 billion industry. But we need your help to make sure policymakers and regulators understand the critical issues that impact our ability to operate.

Beverage Can Management

The aluminum can is a package built for the circular economy. A used beverage can (UBC) serves as a “technical nutrient” as it is returned to the material stream as feedstock at the end of its useful life. Aluminum cans are recycled over and over again in a closed loop process. Aluminum is also by far the most valuable material in the recycling bin on a per ton basis.
