Switch from a lightweight plastic container to a steel container – for the environment

The recent drive to achieve and promote the circular economy has led to an increasing shift in the transport of chemicals from lightweight plastic containers to stainless steel containers for liquids. The reason for the shift is the higher volume of waste generated by lightweight containers.

Do you know which has a smaller carbon footprint over 20 years: a steel container or a lightweight plastic container? Over 20 years, you will need either one steel container or at least 40 lightweight plastic containers.
