World Leader in Beverage Can Sheet Manufacturing

Novelis is the world’s largest producer of aluminum beverage can sheet and the world’s largest recycler of used beverage cans (UBCs), with world class can sheet production lines on four continents: North America, South America, Europe and Asia.


Novelis is the first and only can sheet provider to offer as part of our portfolio certified high-recycled content beverage can sheet, guaranteed to contain at least 90% recycled content. Available to customers globally, this can sheet is certified by Scientific Certification Services, an independent leader in environmental auditing.

​The world’s premier canmakers and beverage brands choose Novelis aluminum for our global footprint, quality, consistency, technical expertise and industry-leading customer support.

​​​ ​ ​

Aluminum is the packaging of choice for many beverage brands because aluminum cans are:

  • Lightweight, strong and affordable
  • Infinitely recyclable
  • An exceptional barrier against air, light and moisture, thereby extending product shelf life
  • Fast to chill
  • A perfect 360°​ canvas for product branding

World Leader in Beverage Can Recycling

Because aluminum is infinitely recyclable, Novelis recycles more than 50 billion UBCs annually and turns them back into new beverage cans in a "can-to-can" cycle of about 60 days.

Recycling aluminum​ requires 95% less energy and produces 95% fewer greenhouse gas emissions (GHGs) than primary aluminum production. Making our can sheet from recycled material is better for the environment, better for our business and better for our customers.

Why choose high recycled content?

​​Production of cans with Novelis certified high recycled content reduced the overall carbon footprint of can-making by 44%.​​
