Recycle Week 2023

Recycle Week, taking place from 16-22 October, is celebrating its 20th anniversary this year, with the theme of ‘The Big Recycling Hunt.’

Keeping the excitement going

With Sarah Hills now on board at CanTech, our colleagues back from two successful industry showcases, and Asia CanTech on the horizon, there is much to celebrate this week at Bell Publishing.

Low temperature, high impact

With Henkel’s appearance at Asia CanTech fast approaching, Alex Rivers speaks to Emily Mullins, global market strategy manager for surface treatment solutions, and Damien Fourcade, sustainability manager for metal packaging, about the company’s low temperature beverage cleaner

Crown’s Asia CanTech 2023 keynote

Alex Rivers speaks to Adrine Thiban Arokiamsamy, regulatory affairs analyst at Crown Holdings and keynote speaker at this year’s Asia CanTech, about his involvement in the company’s new aluminium beverage can recycling rate study, which covers Thailand, Cambodia and Vietnam

Events past, present & future

I’m back – as a Mrs (still a Rivers though) and getting back up to speed, while some of team CanTech attend the IMDPA Annual Conference, and the rest of Bell Publishing gears up for the busy month ahead of our industry-leading events.

Creating visual appeal

The aerosol can market, driven by factors such as convenience and sustainability, particularly in the personal care sector, presents a dynamic landscape for metal decoration. Alex Rivers reports, and speaks with INX International’s Alex Folloso about the opportunities and challenges involved

Wedding cans

Today I’m taking the spotlight as this marks my last ‘live’ blog from the office before I get married – and I’ve been finding out about the tradition of tying of metal cans to the back of a wedding car.

Think of the kids

A new brand has launched what it believes to be the world’s first ‘kids kombucha’ in cans, but will this catch on? Is metal packaging for kids?

The heat is on

Here in the UK, our news pages are filled with updates on the continuing fires across the Mediterranean and beyond.
