New Solutions in Aerosol Packaging
Berezina E.

Aerosols, as representatives of one of the packaging categories, are almost a century. They have become popular due to their ability to create invisible, mist spray, and for some products they are still the only possible packaging option. Until 1989, the main propellant was chlorofluorocarbon (CFCs), but in 1989 it was banned due to the increased harm it caused to the ozone layer. Nowadays, CFC has been replaced in most products by volatile organic compounds (VOCs), such as butane and propane. These VOCs are highly flammable, are precursors to smog formation, and are associated with a wide range of respiratory diseases. In addition, aerosols containing highly flammable VOCs tend to explode when cans are crushed during processing. VOC-containing gases are no longer environmentally or socially sustainable. The natural decision of the manufacturers was to search for alternative solutions, better and more sustainable. This review is devoted to interesting novelties and developments in the field of aerosol packaging.
