Modelling Steel Packaging Flow

We were commissioned by Metal Packaging Manufacturers Association to develop a model that could be used to more accurately quantify the amount of steel placed onto the UK market.


The quantity of steel packaging placed onto the UK market has traditionally come from an estimate provided by Tata Steel (previously Corus). The estimated figure had never been verified and the Advisory Committee on Packaging requested that the estimates be substantiated using a recognised methodology and data sources.


Copies of all our material flow reports can be found in our Knowledge Hub.

A very professional piece of work to develop a model providing an improved understanding of the total volume of steel packaging on the UK market. This provides an excellent base to give confidence to our recycling statistics.
