This study outlines the life cycle inventory of an aluminum beverage can produced in the United States.
The Life Cycle Assessment study was commissioned by the Aluminum Association (AA) to respond appropriately to the increasing market demand for life cycle data on the environmental performance of products.
A life cycle inventory of a product quantifies all material and energy use and environmental releases over its entire life cycle from raw material acquisition through to ultimate disposal. The goal of this study is to provide the Aluminum Association, concerned aluminum industry stakeholders, and life cycle assessment practitioners with up to date life cycle inventory data for beverage cans.
