Sustainable Beverage Packaging Options in India - A Comparative Life Cycle Assessment Study
The goal of the study is to conduct a life cycle assessment (LCA) to analyse the environmental performance of single-use packaging products. The assessment compares small-to-medium size aluminium cans and bottles to other available alternative packaging options in the Indian market such as PET bottles, glass bottles, and multi-layer packaging (MLP) beverage cartons. A focus area of the study is on varying degrees of recycling rates of different substrates and refill rates.
The study has been commissioned by Ball Corporation and the primary intended application is to provide up-to-date and objective results on various sustainability parameters associated with different beverage packaging substrates.
