- The post-consumption
aseptic cartons value approximately 120 USD/ton. The recycled
materials have the following values: recycled paper (120 USD/ton. –
market value), aluminum (2500 USD/ton., according to the LME –
London Metal Exchange) and paraffin (500 USD/ton. – market value of
high purity paraffin for industrial applications).
- Considering the mass
balance, it is possible to calculate the average value of output
materials as 306,60 USD/ton. Thus, there is an aggregation of value
by 155,5% as a result of recycling these three components from
post-consumption aseptic cartons.
