I found one statement that a 747-400 has 147,000 pounds of high-strength aluminum.It takes about 32 empty beer cans to make 1 pound. So 32 cans x 147,000 pounds = 4,704,000 cans. (4 million 704 thousand)That is 784,000 six packs or 196,000 cases. I drink about 6 beers a day. I think it would take me 2,148 years to go through enough cans to get the 147,000 pounds.
Products in cans are purchased, consumed and cans are disposed. If disposal is not driven to recycling, garbage collectors transport cans with any other trash to sanitary embankment. Cans are then collected in the embankment, by an organized process or by poor people in search for valuable items at the embankment to sell and make some money.Cans are sold to junk-dealers. Junk-dealers may have the ability to crush the cans or sell to someone who does it.Then cans go to an aluminum second level casting company. Melted aluminum is turned into ingots which are laminated in a rolling mill. A can factory produces new (recycled) cans which are filled with products and shipped to store and a new cycle is initiated.Curiosities:1) Beverage cans can have a life cycle between 30 and 45 days.2) Electricity savings between producing one single aluminum can and recycling it is enough to keep a TV working for 3 hours or a 100 Watts lamp for 20 hours.3) One pound, kilo, ton of recycled aluminum saves 5 times the same amount of bauxite, the core mineral to produce aluminum.

Did you know that every year around 5 billion aluminum drink cans are sold in the UK? That's a lot of fizzy pop and beer!Alcan estimates that every household in the UK consumes around 200 aluminum drink cans every year. Each one of these can be recycled back into new drink cans over and over again.Recycling aluminum cans saves energy and natural resources, and also reduces the pressure on landfill sites.If all the aluminum cans sold were recycled there would be around 14 million fewer dustbins emptied into landfill sites every year!Aluminium cans that are recycled in the UK are melted down and turned into ingots of aluminum which are used to make new cans. This is called closed loop recycling, because old cans go in and metal to make new cans comes out.How can you tell if a drink can is made of aluminum?Around 75% of drink cans are made of aluminum. An easy way to check is to test the side of a can with a magnet - if the magnet doesn't stick it's aluminum. Aluminium cans are lighter than steel and the metal is more shiny - if you compare the base of a steel can to one made of aluminum you can see the difference.To find out more about aluminum can recycling, click here, and to see the aluminum recycling logo click here.
