The development of the Integrated Waste Management Facility
The Integrated Waste Management Facility (IWMF) can effectively process the following waste streams:
- 5,800 tonnes per day of incinerable waste;
- 250 tonnes per day of household recyclables collected under National Recycling Programme (NRP);
- 400 tonnes per day of source-segregated food waste; and
- 800 tonnes per day of dewatered sludge from TWRP.
Key benefits of Integrated Waste Management Facility (IWMF)
| ||Benefits ||Brief Description |
|1||Optimise land use||The IWMF will adopt innovative plant layout and designs to make full use of the limited space available.|
|2||Maximise energy and resource recovery||The IWMF will be designed for higher energy and resource recovery efficiencies. It will be able to generate more electricity and recover more materials such as recyclables and metals for reuse. |
|3||Minimise environmental impact ||The IWMF will be equipped with advanced technologies to ensure clean air emissions as well as minimise solid residues for disposal at Semakau Landfill (SL). |
|4||IWMF – TWRP co-location synergies ||The co-location of the IWMF with the Tuas Water Reclamation Plant (TWRP), jointly known as Tuas Nexus, will derive various process and non-process synergies to achieve higher plant performances and optimise land use.|
The IWMF will be constructed in phases and the first phase is targeted for completion by 2025.

Driving synergies through IWMF and TWRP
NEA’s IWMF and PUB’s TWRP, jointly known as Tuas Nexus, will be co-located at the Tuas View Basin Site to maximise both energy and resource recovery in solid waste and used water treatment processes. The Tuas Nexus is the first of its kind planned from the ground up, enabling NEA and PUB to benefit from a water-energy-waste nexus.
