Novelis and Red Brick have come up with a closed-loop recycling system for the brewery’s used beverage cans. The cans from the brewery will be returned to a nearby Novelis recycling center, where these will be recycled into new evercan sheet.

Novelis debuted evercan last year but has struggled to get big manufacturers to use it simply because most of them do not want to change their processes to allow a specialty recycled can sheet to take up a significant portion of their purchases. Companies such as MillerCoors and Coca-Cola do not want their production to be dependent on any one supplier.
