Material Efficiency is no longer skill based. Skills now alter the time to complete a job, rather than the materials required to complete a job.

So, you need a researched Blueprint (max is ME 10, where each level gives a 1% reduction in material needs).
To further lower your material needs, you need to use special facilities (POS arrays often give a 2% reduction) and/or you need ot use "teams". Teams are hired into various systems, and might give a 0-2.5% reduction in material requirements for the production area they focus in. See the dev blog on them here: Teams

Metallurgy is the skill you need to train to speed up any ME research on your BPO
