Sembcorp Industries and the Singapore Economic Development Board (EDB) launched Singapore’s first industrial ‘living laboratory’. As a living lab, Sembcorp will grant technology providers access into its proprietary wastewater treatment and waste-to-energy facilities on Jurong Island for late-stage test-bedding and co-innovation in areas such as smart water systems and carbon capture.
Sembcorp partners EDB to launch the first industrial living lab in Singapore
This will see Sembcorp and EDB jointly investing up to a total of S$8 million to support the commercialisation of R&D projects from the pilot-testing stage to market-ready levels. If the new technologies are proven successful in actual industrial settings , they have the potential to be deployed in Sembcorp’s global operations. This gives smaller players that do not own any infrastructure the chance to scale up their technologies and develop a highly-prized track record.
