The aerosol packaging manufacturers are moving towards developing sustainable aerosol packaging without compromising the product quality and its features.

Manufacturers are developing aerosol packaging, which is light in weight, uses compressed air as a propellant that is a sustainable alternative, has a lesser carbon footprint than other aerosol packaging materials. These materials are recyclable, and relatively safer.

Some are even using plastic for aerosol packaging, which can easily be designed and shaped as per the requirement of the end users. Moreover, it is rust and BPA free and has lower storage & transportation cost due to its lightweight feature.

Aerosol packaging is made up of aluminum and steel, which can be completely recycled, but the issue is the aluminum used in aerosol packaging, as the material contains a carbon footprint of about 1.5 times more than PET material, which is hazardous for the environment.

Furthermore, aluminum aerosol packaging uses harmful greenhouse gases as a propellant, which again harm the environment as well as society. Moreover, safety and flammability issues might arise due to the use of greenhouse gases as propellant in aluminum aerosol packaging. This creates a hindrance in the growth as governments around the world are imposing stringent regulations to curb carbon emissions.
