Singapore Waste Management Market Analysis

Singaporean waste management market is growing at a decent pace as the country's smaller size gives it a little room for waste disposal, and encourages recycling. In 2017, the country had recycled 61% of its waste, according to the National Environment Agency. The rest is incinerated, with a slight fraction sent to landfill. The landfill "island," called Semakau, was created in 1999 and extended in 2015, with enough space to meet Singapore's waste disposal needs until at least 2035.The waste management industry in Singapore majorly consists of all municipal solid waste (MSW) - including non-hazardous waste generated in households, commercial establishments and institutions, and non-hazardous industrial process wastes, agricultural wastes and sewage sludge. The industry's value represents the amount of total typical charge per ton for landfill multiplied by the volume of MSW generated. The industry's volume represents the total MSW generation. All currency conversions used in the creation of this report have been calculated using constant 2017 annual average exchange rates.

Insights on the Incineration practices in Singapore to deal with effective waste management

Owing to its limited land area and dense population, it is very important that Singapore has an efficient system for the collection and disposal of waste generated across the nation.

To meet this increasing need, Singapore has developed an advanced waste management system that minimises land use.

In Singapore, 92% of waste is incinerated, on the other hand, the remaining is landfilled at a unique offshore solid waste facility. Singapore’s four incineration plants serve as a land-efficient method of waste management, and they provide 3% of the island’s electricity needs.

Overall, Singapore’s integrated waste management system focuses on three areas: collection, recovery and treatment.

Core strategies for the sustainability of Singapore’s waste management include: 

  • Minimising waste through reducing, reusing and recycling (more than 50 per cent of Singapore’s waste is recycled) 
  • A push towards Zero Landfill 
  • Developing the waste management industry and positioning Singapore as a centre for waste management technology in the region
