Ball wins aerosol innovation award
Ball Corporation has won a 2017 Aerosol Dispensing Forum (ADF) Innovation Award for its L’Oreal Men Expert antiperspirant can, produced using Ball’s ReAl technology.
According to the company, Ball’s ReAl technology provides increased strength and allows Ball to lightweight the product by approximately 20%, which results in an estimated carbon footprint reduction of 18% for a 150-millilitre aerosol can when compared to a standard can.
Stan Platek, vice president and general manager at Ball Aerocan, said: “It’s a great honour to be recognised for our commitment to sustainability and we applaud L’Oreal for their commitment as well.
“This product proves that you can have beautiful and environmentally sustainable packaging that is also cost-effective.”
