Site Visits – CleanEnviro Summit Singapore / WasteMET ASIA
Singapore has set a target to achieve a 70% recycling rate by 2030. Through these site visits, participants will gain a better appreciation of Singapore's comprehensive strategies in waste management and resource recovery, and learn about Singapore's initiatives to encourage environmental innovations, technology adoption and the practice of 3Rs (Reduce, Reuse & Recycle). The site visits will showcase recycling facilities, waste-to-energy plants as well as the world's first off-shore landfill.
The following Site Visits are on offer and will run in parallel on Wednesday 4 July:
|Habitats in Harmony' Tour
|Clean Land & Cities' Tour
|Recycling Plant Tour
|Trash to Treasure' Tour
|Cimelia Resource Recovery
(E-waste Recycling) Facility
Waste-to-Energy (WTE) plant
'Habitats in Harmony - Sustainable Landfill Development' Tour (Sold Out)
On this tour, participants will get to step onto the world's first and only offshore landfill and learn how Singapore successfully preserves nature areas during its construction as well as in its daily operations of the landfill. The Semakau Landfill, operated by NEA, is acclaimed internationally and was dubbed by the New Scientist Magazine as the 'Garbage of Eden', a 'paradise' for incinerated waste ash and non-incinerable waste which are transferred to the landfill from the incineration plants on the mainland.

As the needs of the world grow, Sembcorp recognises that there are tremendous opportunities to actively invest and grow sustainable businesses. Using our integrated group strength, we apply proven technologies to produce energy in greener ways, create innovative solutions for clean sustainable water and help to manage resources through the treatment and recovery of recyclables from waste. Producing energy from waste is an opportunity as well as a platform for Sembcorp to move towards a more sustainable future.
In December 2011, we commenced operations of our new woodchip-fuelled biomass steam production plant on Jurong Island, Singapore. The plant is the first of such energy-from-waste facility in Singapore to produce process steam for third-party commercial customers on Jurong Island. The facility is capable of taking up to 150 tonnes of waste wood per day to produce 20 tonnes per hour of steam with only a very small amount of ash (2%) generated during the woodchip combustion process. Stack emissions data is continually provided to the National Environment Agency through a direct communication link to monitor and ensure that the plant complies with the national emissions guidelines.
Sembcorp also leverages our expertise in solid waste management to manage the entire energy-fromwaste process. Our solid waste management arm in Singapore collects and recovers recyclables from industrial and commercial waste from over 3,000 customers that are otherwise sent for incineration and disposed of in landfills. Our integrated construction and demolition materials recovery facility in Lim Chu Kang, Singapore, is capable of processing 300,000 tonnes of construction and demolition waste per year, recovering timber hardcore and fines during the sorting process. The recovered wood waste from the above two sources are then processed efficiently into woodchip to fuel the biomass steam production plant. The biomass plant, designed to the Building and Construction Authority's Green Mark Gold standard, incorporates natural ventilation and lighting, solar power and recycled building materials, and is also highly automated to ensure safety and efficiency.
'Trash to Treasure - Recycling Technology Showcase' Tour (Sold Out)
On this tour, participants will get a glimpse into cutting-edge recycling technology at Cimelia's facility. Thereafter, this is followed by a visit to the Keppel Seghers's Waste-to-Energy (WTE) plant. Keppel Seghers is the only private operator in Singapore to operate two municipal incineration plants with WTE capability, and treating up to almost half of the total volume of municipal waste sent for incineration in Singapore.
