CIAL (Consortium Packaging Aluminium)
CIAL is a national non-profit consortium founded in 1997 representing the commitment taken by companies operating in the aluminum packaging sector, to research into new ways of reducing and reusing packaging which reconcile the demands of the market with the need to protect the environment. The Consortium, which groups together aluminum producers, transformers, manufacturers and users of aluminum packaging, as well as packaging waste recyclers, has among its tasks that of guaranteeing the recovery of post-consumption aluminum packaging collected by Italian municipalities: cans, tins and food trays, aerosol cans, tubes, thin sheet, caps.
This activity has allowed, in recent years, thanks to an increase in the amount of aluminum collected to meet and even exceed the objectives set by the European legislation. The results achieved so far in terms of collection, recycling and recovery of aluminum wastes have been very positive, making Italy an example for the rest of Europe. In 2018 approximately 80% of aluminum packaging placed in the Italian market was recycled.
To achieve the recycling objectives, the CIAL Consortium stipulates special agreements with the Municipalities, or with companies delegated by them, for the organization of differentiated collection of aluminum packaging. The costs of collection are fully covered by CIAL through the recognition of a pre-established fee, in line with the provisions of the Framework Agreement between the National Packaging Consortium (CONAI) and the National Association of Italian Municipalities (ANCI).
