Beverage cartons, coffee cups recycler secures funding

21st September 2021 By Staff Reporter | news@foodticker.co.nz | @foodtickernz

Kiwi company saveBOARD has secured a A$1.74m grant from the Australian and New South Wales governments to set-up a A$5m facility that will turn packaging waste such as used beverage cartons and coffee cups into building materials.

The NSW plant would allow Australian builders to replace plywood, particle board and plaster board, with low carbon, environmentally sustainable construction boards.

SaveBOARD has established a plant at Te Rapa near Hamilton that was already recycling post-production industrial packaging waste from Fonterra and Frucor into construction boards.
