Minimalist – the FIRST recyclable spray head made mostly of aluminium – for aluminium aerosol cans
Submitted by: TUBEX GmbH
Material: Aluminium
The submission is ready for the market but has not yet been introduced (prototype)

What the jury said:

The newly designed and patented “THE MINIMALIST” spray head is made mainly of metal. This reduces the plastic content to 5% meaning the can falls into recycling class A with a metal content of 95%. This is an ecological and economic benefit, as significantly less plastic is burnt in the recycling process and at the same time, fewer levies are incurred under the Dual System. The unique technology opens up new design possibilities, and the designs are correspondingly innovative and diverse. The German Packaging Award jury considers this innovation fully worthy of an award.
