Recycling plays a key part in reducing global warming and climate change.

In Singapore,

60,000 tonnes

of electronic waste is generated annually.

For a land-scarce state like Singapore, the Smart Waste Management System can be a great solution to turn waste into energy or biochar, which keeps the country cleaner and greener.

In 2017,

809,800 tonnes

of food waste was generated and

only 16% were recycled.

The rest of it is incinerated and sent to our precious landfills.

0.25°C

per decade

and the daily mean temperature are projected to increase by

1.4 °C  to 4.6 °C

Since 2007, Singapore’s energy consumption has increased by

17%.

That’s equivalent to adding $1,000 annually to the utilities bill of the average household.
