Analysis of Aluminum Can Management in Ecuador

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contributionpeer-review


The Aim of this document is to analyze the management of aluminum cans in Ecuador. The current situation of waste management generated by various industries that use aluminum packaging is presented (cans). It is known that aluminum cans are 100% recyclable, as they retain their characteristics and can be reused more times than glass and plastic. Additionally, aluminum is infinitely recyclable. Therefore, if these waste materials were properly managed, it could generate economic returns for individuals who use or recycle them, as well as for companies that reintegrate this type of waste back into their production chain.
