M-board is a new innovative lightweight material that is being developed right now at IKEA. Classic board production lines are about 300 metres long while the M-Board production line is only 30 meters long. This means lower production costs and lower factory costs. It also means that factory establishments can be much closer to the market, all of which is good for pricing and makes for more efficient transportation. The M-Board production line uses about half the energy of other board production lines, thus creating far less stress on the environment.
