CDL beverage can end


As our contribution to sustainable packagings, we are constantly trying to decrease the weight of our cans and ends. The latest success story is the CDL end which is 10% lighter than the old standard end but retains the current performance characteristics. Converting 900 million ends to CDL will save aluminium equal to the weight of an A380 plane.
