Ball Aluminium Cup wins Edison Award

Ball Corporation announced that the Ball Aluminium Cup was named a Gold winner by the 2022 Edison Awards in the field of Consumer Solutions: Sustainability. 

Established in 1987, the prestigious Edison Awards honour and foster innovation and innovators that have a positive impact on the world.

Receiving an Edison Award has become one of the highest accolades denoting innovative success. 

The Ball Aluminium Cup was selected as a winner by expert reviewers from around the world who assessed more than 350 nominations.

Infinitely recyclable and economically valuable, aluminium is the most sustainable beverage packaging material, and like aluminium cans, aluminium cups can be easily recycled. In fact, 75 percent of the aluminium ever produced is still in use today and aluminium cans, cups and bottles can be recycled and back on a store shelf within 60 days. 

Additionally, the Ball Aluminium Cup is now composed of 90% recycled content, the highest recycled content rate of any beverage packaging in its category.

“We’re thrilled that the infinitely recyclable Ball Aluminium Cup has been recognised by the Edison Awards as a sustainable consumer solution,” said Dan Fisher, President and CEO-elect of Ball. 

“This recognition affirms the Ball Aluminium Cup’s position as both a leader in its category and a simple way for consumers to live more sustainably. 

“It’s our mission to use our aluminium beverage packaging expertise to provide customers and consumers with the sustainable solutions they need to do right by the planet, and we’re excited to continue delivering on that promise.”

“We are incredibly proud of the impact the Edison Awards winners continue to make in the global marketplace,” said Frank Bonafilia, Executive Director of Edison Awards. 

“It shows that no matter what the circumstances, great minds are always striving to create new innovations to better the world. The 2022 Edison Awards winners are the best of the best. Congratulations to the innovation teams behind all these amazing products and services.” 

Ball, a leading global provider of infinitely recyclable aluminium beverage packaging, designed the lightweight aluminium cups, now available in multiple sizes, to bring beverage packaging circularity to sports and entertainment venues in response to growing consumer preference for more sustainable products.
