The life cycle of a tin can.
Transcript of The life cycle of a tin can.
"Tin" cans are made of tinplate which is tin-coated steel. Cans may also be made of aluminium or other metals.
There are nine tin-bearing ores found naturally in the earth's crust, but the only one that is mined to any extent is cassiterite.
The RAW materials Heinz baked beans Every day over one million cans of Heinz Beanz are consumed in the UK. That is approximately 485 million cans per year.
Once the baked beans are eaten the cans are usually thrown away. But what impact does this have on the enviroment? Tin cans don't decompose - they rust. But tin cans can be recycled. If all the aluminium cans in the UK were recycled there would be 14 million fewer full dustbins each year Recycling 1 tonne of steel scrap saves 80% of the CO2 emissions produced when making steel from iron ore
