saveBOARD, a manufacturer of sustainable building materials, will soon establish a new facility on the Gold Coast following funding from the Queensland Recycling Modernisation Fund (QRMF).
This initiative, which is part of a larger effort by the federal and state governments, aims to help turn waste materials like used Tetrapak beverage cartons, coffee cups, and soft plastics into high-performance building boards for construction.
With more than $1.7 million in grant funding, SaveBOARD is expected to create new jobs and contribute to the growth of Queensland’s economy.
The move closely follows the opening of saveBOARD’s first recycling facility in Australia in Warragamba, Sydney’s southwest, which can turn up to 4,000 tonnes of beverage carton packaging waste annually into sustainable building materials for Aussie homes and offices.
“By diverting thousands of tonnes of waste away from landfills each year, this project is an important step towards achieving a more sustainable future. We’re proud to support SaveBOARD’s mission and look forward to the positive impact this project will have on our community,” the QRMF said.
The QRMF is a joint initiative supported by the Queensland and Australian Governments to invest in new infrastructure that sorts, processes, recycles and remanufactures waste.
The QRMF helps accelerate projects that address critical infrastructure gaps in Queensland’s waste management and resource recovery industries.
