Abstract

Aluminum has been recycled since the days it was first commercially produced and today almost one-third of the global aluminum consumption worldwide is contributed by recycled aluminum. The aluminum soda / beverage can is by far the most recycled consumer beverage package globally by units, pounds and percentage recycled. It amounts to more than twice the recycling rate and recycled content percentages for beverage packages of other materials. The research project seeks to investigate and study on the process of collection to packaging of Lian Gim Aluminum & Supply Pte Ltd with an aim to improve the whole process in terms of cost, quality and safety at the end of the project.
