Re: [greenyes] New Products in Aluminum Bottle Shaped Cans



It sounds like they should be, according to this PR blurb:

Aluminum bottle wows Cannex
http://www.packworld.com/articles/Departments/11795.html

A nice feature is that the caps are aluminum, too.

One question might be whether the polymer seal mentioned in the Wall
Street Journal article has any impact on recyclability?

Does anyone know if these are recyclable?

WALL STREET JOURNAL
Beer, Wine Makers Use Fancy Cans To Court New Fans

Wine in a pink can? Beer in a svelte aluminum bottle? In a bid to reach
more
consumers, several drinks companies are kicking their old habits,
rolling
out new products in nontraditional vessels.

To protect the integrity of the sparkling wine, each can is lined with
a polymer seal to prevent interaction between the aluminum and the
liquid. Not only are the cans lighter than glass and more portable, says
Erle Martin, president of the
winery, they chill faster, and can be crushed with the stomp of a foot
when
empty.
