Our Background

Bookmark and Share

"Singapore is committed to invest in R&D as a driver for economic growth and as a foundation for our long-term competitiveness. Our priorities are, firstly, to build up core R&D capabilities in selected strategic areas and, secondly, to attract and develop a significant concentration of talent to sustain a critical mass of advanced research activity into the long term."

Mr Lee Hsien Loong, Prime Minister of Singapore & Chairman of Research, Innovation and Enterprise Council (RIEC)

Over the years, active involvement of the private sector in Singapore's environment development has helped germinate a local industry cluster of environment and water companies spanning the value chain – from research, planning and design, manufacturing, materials and equipment suppliers, engineering procurement and construction (EPC) to operations and maintenance (O&M). These companies having done well locally, have built up a wealth of technical experience and know-how which had good export potential.

Recognising that this industry cluster represents a new opportunity that could be nurtured into an economic growth engine, the Government has identified the Environment and Water Industry as a strategic growth area. In 2006, the Research, Innovation and Enterprise Council (RIEC) announced the provision of S$330 million over five years to promote research and development in this field over five years, so as to give our industry a sustained competitive edge in the global market and to position Singapore as a R&D base for environment and water solutions.

The Environment & Water Industry Programme Office (EWI) was thus set up in May 06 by the Ministry of the Environment and Water Resources (MEWR) to spearhead the development of the environment and water industry. As shown above, EWI adopts a three-pronged strategy with technology as a key pillar. Our vision is to grow value-added (VA) contribution from the water sector from S$0.5 billion (0.3% of GDP) in 2003 to S$1.7 billion (0.6% of GDP) by 2015. Jobs for this sector are expected to double to about 11,000 in 2015, with a large part of the growth in professional and skilled categories.

In 2011, the NRF allocated another S$140 million to top up this budget, bringing the total to $470 million. Through funding promising research projects, the EWI aims to foster leading-edge technologies and create a thriving and vibrant research community in Singapore.

The Environment & Water Industry Programme Office (EWI) provides overall direction in the development and growth of the water and environment industry. It is an intra-agency setup and its role is primarily to coordinate and integrate efforts and the various components of these programmes dedicated to the environment and water industry, so that Singapore can achieve its goal of being a global hub for the water industry as quickly as possible. It will rely on the agencies with their dedicated manpower, international offices and existing schemes to implement the programme.

EWI resides administratively in PUB, Singapore's national water agency but draws on the resources and domain expertise of officers from a number of key environmental and economic government agencies such as the PUB, Economic Development Board (EDB) and International Enterprise Singapore (IES). This "Whole-of-Government" approach has proven effective as it integrates policy and implementation frameworks across the different agencies that are involved in the industry development efforts.

The EWI is headed by Executive Director, Mr Chew Men Leong (concurrently Chief Executive, PUB), with Deputy Executive Director, Mr Julian Ho (concurrently Assistant Managing Director at EDB) and Second Deputy Executive Director Mr Chua Soon Guan (concurrently Assistant Chief Executive, PUB). EWI's functions are guided by the NRF Board and the EWT Executive Committee, co-chaired by PS (EWR) and Chairman (EDB).

Water Research Commission

The WRC was established in terms of the Water Research Act (Act No 34 of 1971), following a period of serious water shortage. It was deemed to be of national importance to generate new knowledge and to promote the country's water research purposefully, owing to the view held that water would be one of South Africa's most limiting factors in the 21st century. In 1971 when the WRC was founded, water research and development (R&D) in South Africa was limited to a few institutions and the funding level inadequate. There was no research co-ordination and an apparent neglect of some key research fields. In addition, there was little strategic direction or leadership that would provide for the identification of priority areas or appropriate technology transfer. It was to address these issues, that the WRC was established.

Cluster Development

Bookmark and Share

EWI's cluster development strategy aims to develop the industrial ecosystem through these initiatives:

  • Getting major international players to anchor their R&D, engineering, manufacturing and headquarters operations in Singapore;
  • Grooming local companies to be world-class champions; and
  • Creating a conducive environment for start-up companies in this industry.

Today, Singapore's water cluster is well represented by companies throughout the water value chain. These range from consultants (e.g. CH2M Hill, Black & Veatch, CPG, MWH), to system integrators (e.g. Veolia, CDM, Keppel), and equipment suppliers (e.g. Siemens, GE Water, Toray). Since 2006, the number of water companies has grown from 50 to more than 100. Many of these companies have expanded their presence in Singapore, and home-grown companies like Hyflux, Keppel and Sembcorp have also shown strong growth. Direct investment from these companies in the period of 2006 to 2010, when fully realized, will increased the sector's annual value-added contribution by S$590M and generate 2,300 jobs.

Many small-medium enterprises (SMEs) have also begun to emerge. Examples include MINT (a spin-off from NTU) following its successful R&D in a membrane integrity sensor; and the development by Ethos Engineering and Prima Research of a water-based outdoor cooling system for Resorts World Sentosa. To support the SMEs, Ngee Ann Polytechnic, with support from SPRING, launched an EWT Centre of Innovation to provide R&D services for SMEs who cannot afford their own R&D set-up.

"When it came to choosing an ideal location for the Norit Asia Pacific headquarters, Singapore came first to mind as it is well-known as a center of global trade, investment, and industry in Asia Pacific. It is really the gateway to the fast-growing Asia Pacific region and an ideal location to best manage and coordinate Norit's business regional activities. With Singapore's advanced infrastructure and their future growth plans to support industry in the region our choice became clear."

Capability Development involves building up the R&D and technology base for the E&W sector and at the same time, developing the necessary talent and manpower to meet the needs of this growing and innovative sector.

EWI has committed more than S$200M to R&D-related projects since 2006. Water technology roadmaps and targeted disbursement of R&D grants ensure that market-relevant expertise is being nurtured in selected water domains. To date, 67 R&D projects have been awarded and more than 114 test-bedding projects have been initiated.

Several schemes have been introduced to further support and incentivise R&D efforts. Besides product development, EWI also offers financial incentives for potential clients to adopt new technology, and test-bedding opportunities at PUB's facilities. EWI is seeing increased interest in these schemes. Some of the sponsored R&D projects have shown promising results and are looking towards commercialization. The first TechPioneer project has been awarded to Keppel Seghers for their low energy membrane distillation plant at Singapore Refining Centre (SRC) on Jurong Island.

There is now a more vibrant R&D eco-system. Nine public Centres of Excellence (COEs) providing research and training services in niche water areas have been set up, including most recently, the Singapore-Peking-Oxford Research Enterprise. To facilitate capability transfer, the COEs are linked to renowned overseas industry players such as Deltares (Singapore-Delft Water Alliance), and Danish Hydraulics Institute (DHI-NTU Centre) where possible. In addition, 15 companies have set up private R&D centres in Singapore, including GE Water's first university-based R&D centre at NUS, Siemens' first corporate R&D centre in Southeast Asia, and Toray's membrane R&D centre.

EWI has also established strong international R&D linkages through PUB. In 2006, PUB was invited to join the prestigious Global Water Research Coalition as its first Asian member, enabling Singapore's researchers access to renowned research institutions worldwide. Since then, numerous other R&D-related MOUs have been signed with respected organisations, such as Suez Environnement, Saline Water Conversion Corporation, the World Health Organisation (WHO), American Water Works Association (AWWA), Kiwa Water Research and the Delft Hydraulics.

EWI offers PhD scholarships to train the next generation of research and professional leaders, and supports the industry's manpower efforts through a programme to jointly sponsor scholarships for Masters and PhD-level candidates. Altogether, EWI has also awarded scholarships to 37 Masters and PhD students.

EWI works closely with agencies such as IE Singapore and PUB to assist Singapore-based water companies to internationalise and to grow their business overseas. Promotional led initiatives such as overseas trade missions as well as profiling Singapore based companies at international forums help create business opportunities for the water industry. Singapore-based water companies have done well in the global water markets and secured over 100 projects worth close to S$ 9 billion from more than 15 countries between 2006 and 2011.

To further strengthen Singapore's profile as a global hydrohub, EWI and PUB launched the Singapore International Water Week (SIWW), an annual water event that brings together global water experts and showcases practical water technology and business solutions. SIWW consists of five pillar events, namely the Water Leaders' Summit, Water Conference, Water Expo, Water Festival and the Lee Kuan Yew Water Prize.

Test-Bedding : Using Singapore as a Living Laboratory for Water Solutions

Many new technologies that emerge from the laboratories require testing and validation under practical conditions. In Singapore, as part of PUB's efforts to help bring technologies to the market, we allow companies to test-bed their new technologies at our water works and water reclamation plants. As part of test-bedding, companies are provided with a small site in the treatment works, and real water or used water from an operating plant are provided to test the new technology's performance. This allows companies to obtain track records for the new technology, or to optimise their technology so as to improve their product. Since 2006, more than 120 testbedding projects have been conducted in our water works and water reclamation plants in Singapore.

If you wish to test-bed your technology in Singapore, please contact us at PUB_EWI@pub.gov.sg

The Centres of Excellence (CoE) Programme was initiated in 2006 to develop world-class research centres in key Environment & Water technology areas identified via a technology roadmap. The aim was to build up critical R&D capabilities and skilled manpower in meeting the demands of a fast-growing environment and water industry in Singapore, as well as to attract international companies and research institutions to set up business/R&D activities in Singapore.

Since the scheme started on 1 February 2007, a vibrant R&D ecosystem has been created, with the funding of the following six CoEs:

  • Singapore-Delft Water Alliance (SDWA)
  • DHI-NTU R&D centre
  • Singapore Membrane Technology Centre (SMTC)
  • Residues and Resource Reclamation Centre (R3C)
  • Advanced Environmental Biotechnology Centre (AEBC)
  • The Singapore-Peking-Oxford Research Enterprise (SPORE)

The research focus of these centres span across a variety of environment and water areas, helping to build up a comprehensive set of capabilities in Singapore. Some of these centres have also gained international stature. SMTC, for example, is widely regarded as one of the top 10 membrane research centres in the world and has made significant contribution to new membrane technologies like membrane sensors and forward osmosis membranes.

At NTU, the four CoEs – DHI-NTU, SMTC, R3C and AEBC – have also consolidated research efforts under the NEWRI brand name, which is placing Singapore on the world map through its reputation as a comprehensive environment and water research institute that has strong research impact and industry relevance.

Skilled Manpower Trained

The setting up of these CoEs has built up a steady supply of specialist manpower to support increasingly sophisticated industrial activities in the environment and water sector. To date, there are more than 230 students undergoing PhD and Masters training in the 6 CoEs, exceeding the target of training 165 students under the CoE programme. After graduation, these students go on to enter the industry, while some are employed by the CoEs or universities, ensuring a steady pool of skilled manpower for the industry.

Strong Industry Collaboration

The CoEs have also established strong industry linkages and contributed extensively to the efforts in engaging private sector companies and research institutes to conduct businesses and/or R&D activities in Singapore. To date, the centres have collectively entered into more than 120 joint R&D projects with industry players.

These collaboration projects have validated Singapore's capabilities and talent availability and spurred further growth of these industry players' operations here. A good example is Toray Industries, a leading Japanese industrial conglomerate that is tapping on SMTC's technologies to develop membrane fouling mechanisms. The successful collaboration between SMTC and Toray subsequently spurred the latter to set up a 50-man research centre. Aside from that, Sembcorp Industries has also assembled a research team together with NEWRI to develop the BioIron technology for recalcitrant organics removal in wastewater treatment
