The USA version of saveBOARD provided the membrane roof substrate (the board underneath the waterproof surface) for the Tesla Gigafactory One, in Sparks Nevada. The Gigafactory has a roof area of approximately 200,000 m2; which equates to up-cycling 2,000 tons of composite plastics in this single roof. This one roof saves 336,000 kgs of embodied CO2 compared to using a plywood substrate.
