Spray Technology – European steel recycling reaches record levels

Recycling of steel packaging in Europe has hit an all-time high of 80.5%, according to figures issued by the Association of European Producers of Steel for Packaging (APEAL).

This record rate, which represents data from 2017, indicates that the industry met and exceeded one of its key sustainability goals—an 80% recycling rate in Europe by 2020—three years ahead of schedule.

“With 100% of the separately collected steel packaging being recycled into new steel products, these figures further reinforce the fact that steel is [well placed] to reach the higher recycling targets proposed by the revision of the Packaging and Packaging Waste Directive in the context of the Circular Economy package,” said Alexis Van Maercke, Secretary General of APEAL
