ESC was engaged by a government agency to conduct a Waste Management study as part of its Jurong Island Version 2.0 initiative. 

About the Project

The project initiative aims to enhance the long-term competitiveness and sustainability of the energy and chemical industries in Singapore allowing them to stay ahead of the ever-expanding global competition.  

Our Approach

ESC was tasked to perform a study of overseas petrochemical related industrial parks, waste audits, and propose recommendations to increase waste utilisation and reduce waste generation on Jurong Island.   

The study includes a technical feasibility study and financial modelling (CAPEX/OPEX) for a potentially hazardous waste treatment facility. ESC advised the client on potential regulatory changes, incentives to cause changes to industry practices, and the appropriate data to track and analyse to effectively manage waste management in Singapore.   

ESC undertook the study of four overseas petrochemical industrial parks where waste management systems, initiatives, technologies, and solutions have been successfully implemented and perform benchmarking of Jurong Island’s existing waste management practices and waste treatment technologies. 

This was followed by a waste audit study to identify all existing Jurong Island companies’ waste streams and their annual generated quantities and segregate this information into two approaches. The first approach was to sort the annual generated quantities to target for waste reduction, and the second approach was to sort commercial value for waste recycling/value extraction. 

Outcome

Focusing on practical, sustainable options to enhance the business advantages of Jurong Island, ESC recommended solutions to promote waste recycling by increasing business to business waste utilization and reducing waste generation at source for the client to achieve maximum benefits and minimal disruption.

Client Testimonials

ESC thinks out of the box. They can come up with conventional solutions. But they are better in providing a solution fit for the company - one that feeds your organization. 

ESC is focused on helping us solve our problem. Even if it means sometimes going out of the scope of what was originally agreed upon. So as a client, I can focus all my efforts on solving the problem.

Head of Technical, Chemical Specialties

We had no experience at first in dealing with Safety Cases and dealing with authority. When we have an issue, we ask ESC. Just one look at it, ESC already knows what to do. They  advise us accordingly and professionally and tell us what to do what to follow and to know. Our partnership with them produced good results.
