Integrated Waste Management Facility (ongoing)

The Future of Infrastructure

Singapore’s National Environment Agency (NEA) is looking into the development of an Integrated Waste Management Facility (IWMF) to help Singapore meet its future waste management needs and achieve long-term environmental sustainability. As a state-of-the-art flagship facility, it will be developed with innovative solutions that can maximise both energy and resource recovery from solid waste.

The IWMF and the Tuas Water Reclamation Plant (TWRP) will be co-located at the same Tuas View Basin site, allowing various synergies to be derived.

The IWMF will be constructed in phases with its first treatment facility coming on stream in 2022.

The IWMF can effectively process the following waste streams:

  • 5,800 tonnes per day of incinerable waste;
  • 250 tonnes per day of household recyclables collected under National Recycling Programme (NRP);
  • 400 tonnes per day of source-segregated food waste; and
  • 800 tonnes per day of dewatered sludge from TWRP.
