Singapore’s National Environmental Agency (NEA) has held an integral position in the country’s development since its independence in 1965. The NEA serves Singapore’s unique position as an island-city state, that is being challenged with limited natural resources and a hinterland. The NEA promotes energy efficiency management and energy conservation initiatives to improve air quality, by which it reduces greenhouse gases (GHGs) and mitigates climate change.

NEA joined forces with the Public Utilities Board (PUB) – Singapore’s water agency – for a co-located Integrated Waste Management Facility (IWMF) & Tuas Water Reclamation Plant (TWRP). In being the first of its kind, they contacted various consultants to propose conceptual designs to enhance the symbiotic arrangement of these facilities (IWMF-TWRP). After the conceptual designs were delivered, the top management of the NEA sought to conduct a resource efficiency study intended to harness the potential of both facilities and preemptively intercept as-yet unforeseen isues of the project proper.

NEA called for a tender on a Resource Efficiency Study which CRX secured with our record in the end-to-end executon of resource efficiency management studies. We choose to use the Integrative Design Process (IDP) methodology to develop this study. IDP is designed for solutions that are holistic and systems thinking. We engaged with expert IDP facilitators and deep domain consultants in a series of inter-disciplinary design workshops. Result: CRX delivered a long-term strategic proposal for the use of critical resources, with a report of the study whch included reducing Capital Expense and Operating Expenses, based on performance metrics and simulation models, that were also influenced by low carbon and circularity.

In the words of a visiting observer from the UK: “Its stunning, what Singapore has achieved in this space… no other country has achieved this in waste management.” As a Singaporean company, CRX is proud to have been a part of the project’s design success.
