Toyo Seikan develops and begins mass production of the lightest aluminum can body in Japan,
contributing to further reduce greenhouse gas emissions

Toyo Seikan Co., Ltd. (“Toyo Seikan”), a consolidated subsidiary of Toyo Seikan Group Holdings Ltd., has developed the lightest※1 aluminum DI can in the domestic market for 204mm SOT (stay-on tab) cans. Compression bottom reform (CBR) technology is used to reinforce the bottom of the beverage can, thus enabling it to be reduced in weight. This development should further reduce greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions. Toyo Seikan will begin mass production of the cans in April 2024 in 350ml and 500ml sizes at its Chitose and Kiyama factories, followed by other factories nationwide.
