Shipping containers are a symbol of our globalised society. They are used for transporting a major share of the goods that we consume. However, their life cycle as a means of transport is limited to merely eight to ten years. This raises the question: What to do with decommissioned large format containers? Melting the scrap metal of a 40 foot container consumes about 8000 kWh – reusing it as a construction element only 400 to 800 kWh. Continued use of its storage capacity, therefore, seems sensible and sports goods manufacturer Amaya considered it a convincing idea.
