Facts about Aluminium Foil

Aluminium has been used commercially for over 100 years. Since the late nineteenth century its plentiful availability and its characteristics have increasingly shaped our modern way of life. Think of aircraft and cars without it, or space exploration, electricity transmission, modern buildings, cooking pans and, today, high quality packaging of many sorts. More than 43 million tons of primary aluminium is now produced annually around the world. Thanks to recycling, an increasingly large amount comes from metal which has been used at least once before.
