Anaergia to Provide Food Waste Treatment System for Singapore’s Tuas Nexus Integrated Waste Management Facility
BURLINGTON, Ontario–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Anaergia Inc. (“Anaergia” or the “Company”) (TSX: ANRG) has announced the signing of a contract to supply its state-of-the-art organic waste treatment solutions to the joint venture selected by the National Environment Agency (NEA) of Singapore. for its Tuas Nexus Integrated Waste Management Facility (IWMF) Engineering, Procurement and Construction Package 2 (EPC2) contract. The EPC2 contract will include a 400-tonne-per-day food waste processing facility (FWTF), which Anaergia will design and build using its industry-leading waste processing technologies. The construction of this waste treatment facility will be a key step towards realizing Singapore’s vision of becoming a zero waste economy.
NEA awarded the EPC2 contract to a joint venture between UES Holdings Pte Ltd (UESH) and China Harbor (Singapore) Engineering Company Pte Ltd (CHEC). The proposal submitted by the joint venture was evaluated on the basis of process design and optimization, resource efficiency, Singapore Green Mark initiatives, plant layout and value-for-money. price.
Using Anaergia’s proven and proprietary technologies, the FWTF will be Singapore’s premier facility for the treatment of source-separated food waste. The state-of-the-art facility will use Anaergia’s technologies, which first separate inorganic materials from food waste. The food waste fraction will be turned into a slurry, which will be co-digested anaerobically with the wastewater sludge at the Tuas Water Reclamation Plant (Tuas WRP) to produce biogas. Co-digestion of food waste sludge and sewage sludge will increase biogas production at Tuas WRP and improve energy recovery from waste while optimizing land use.
Tuas Nexus will be Singapore’s first integrated water and solid waste treatment facility. It will provide an innovative and sustainable solution to meet Singapore’s long-term solid waste management and wastewater treatment needs.
“Food waste treatment is a critical part of this project, and Anaergia’s proven cutting-edge technologies are what make this combined treatment of food sludge and wastewater possible. We are pleased to partner with Anaergia to construct this landmark facility,” said Dr. Zhou Tong, Project Manager, UESH-CHEC JV.
“Singapore is already a world leader in wastewater treatment. By developing and then integrating two world-class facilities, Singapore is becoming a world leader in the optimized management of liquid and solid human waste. This mega facility is Anaergia’s third project in Singapore and is supported by our Asia-Pacific regional offices located there. This contract, together with our recently announced contract in Okayama, Japan, adds approximately SGD$50 million or C$46 million to Anaergia’s backlog. We look forward to continuing to support Singapore in achieving its sustainable infrastructure goals as it implements the Green Plan 2030,” said Andrew Benedek, Chief Executive Officer of Anaergia.
