How much does an average aluminium can weigh today?



Today, aluminium cans are about 30% lighter than they were 25 years ago. Thinner, stronger sections are now being used with less metal, less energy and more savings in weight. An average aluminium can (without its contents, of course) weighed 16.55 grams in 1992. By 2001 the aluminium can weighed about 14.9 grams. Aluminium beverage cans come in different shapes and sizes. The standard volume is 375 ml.
