Transcript of Product Lifecycle: Soda Can!

"A Soda Can's
Lifecycle" Raise and Extract Aluminum is derived from an ore called bauxite. Bauxite is imported to the US from Jamaica and Guinea.The aluminum base, for beverage cans consists mostly of aluminum, but it contains small amounts of other metals as well. These are typically 1% magnesium, 1% manganese, 0.4% iron, 0.2% silicon, and 0.15% copper. Use Manufacture The modern method for making aluminum beverage cans is called two-piece drawing and wall ironing. The process begins with an aluminum ingot which is rolled into a thin sheet. The sheet is cut into a circle, called a blank, that will form the bottom and sides of the can. Dispose We consume over 80 trillion cans of soda a year.
When these cans are disposed into landfills instead
of being recycled, they take 500 years to deteriorate
completely. Consumer
Products Recycle Repair Process Bauxite is refined and then smelted, and the resulting molten aluminum is cast into ingots. After the cans are made and filled with soda they are transported to grocery stores, vending machines, and eating establishments for consumer purchase! The modern aluminum beverage is easy to recycle. Recycling one aluminum can saves enough energy to listen to a full album on your iPod. Recycling 100 cans could light your bedroom for two whole weeks. Recycled material makes up a significant percentage of the aluminum used for beverage cans.
