BROOMFIELD, Colo., Dec. 5, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --Ball Corporation (NYSE: BLL)
received Can of the Year honors for three packaging innovations at the 2013
Canmaker Summit, held recently in Edinburgh, Scotland. In the beverage
two-piece category, the Coors Light World's Most Refreshing Can™ won a gold
award and the Coca-Cola Dynamark™ can won a silver award. In the aerosol
category, the Fa Sport Ultimate Dry impact extruded can won a silver award.


"Leveraging our know-how and technological expertise to provide a competitive
advantage is a key tenet of Ball's Drive for 10 vision," said Jay Billings,
vice president of innovation for Ball's global metal beverage segment. "Our
persistent focus on innovation enables us to provide industry-leading
packaging solutions that help build our customers' brands. This recognition of
our beverage and aerosol packaging innovations is an honor and a testament to
this focus and our investments in technology and innovation over the years."

The Coors Light "World's Most Refreshing Can" combines several different
innovative features, including a double-vented wide mouth for a smoother pour,
a Frost Brew^® liner to lock in the Frost Brewed^® taste, cold-activated
mountains and two-stage cold indicators.

Launched in early April, the winning Coca-Cola can features Ball's newly
developed Dynamark™ variable printing technology, which can be integrated into
the existing printing process for all sizes of steel and aluminum cans. By
enabling up to 24 different monochromatic graphic elements to be added to a
defined vacant area of, or supplemental to, the basic can design. Dynamark can
incorporate logos, icons or individualized messages into the can appearance.
Dynamark™ allows variability in the graphic design at normal production speed.

The Fa Sport Ultimate Dry deodorant can, a collaboration between Ball and
Henkel, is a lighter, extruded aluminum can made using Ball's revolutionary
metal technology, which utilizes recycled aluminum to create a metal alloy
that exhibits increased strength and allows lightweighting of the container
without affecting package integrity. This breakthrough technology allows Ball
to lightweight its extruded aluminum aerosol packaging by as much as 10
percent, with further lightweighting expected in the future.

An international competition sponsored each year by The Canmaker, the Can of
the Year awards celebrate innovation in cans and closures throughout the metal
packaging industry.
