Metallization is a technology highly compatible with environmental needs, as it permits:

- total recycling;
- energy saving (metallization uses 97% less energy compared to the production of an aluminium film of 8µ);
- aluminium saving - as its use amounts to 320 times less in weight;
- reduction in the number of materials used (better recycling);
- optimization of barrier properties.
Generally speaking, by using structures in metallized films instead of traditional ones, a reduction up to 50% in packaging weight can be obtained.
