Delivering Value across the Supply Chain: Jurong Island, Singapore

Sembcorp provides essential solutions to support the development of economies and communities. On Jurong Island in Singapore, we provide innovative and sustainable solutions to meet the energy and water needs of petrochemical and chemical companies, creating value for our customers while helping them limit the environmental impact of their activities.

About Jurong Island:

The 3,200-hectare Jurong Island is Singapore's petrochemical and chemical hub and a prime example of industrial ecology. Its infrastructure is based on a "plug and play" concept, where shared infrastructure and the proximity and inter-connectedness of the industrial cluster allow companies to enjoy cost savings through using third-party utilities and services while building synergies through product integration. Sembcorp leverages our island-wide infrastructure to provide bundled energy and water solutions as well as on-site logistics to multiple customers on the island. By outsourcing their on-site utilities needs to Sembcorp, these customers are able to lower capital investment, better manage risk and focus on their core businesses. Building on the success of our home base operations in Singapore, Sembcorp has also established leading market positions in China for the provision of centralised utilities to industrial clusters.

Water scarcity is an increasing concern, and has been reported to overtake climate change as the top environmental issue

Renewable Energy Solutions on Jurong Island

Sembcorp creates value by producing steam for customers on Jurong Island from waste collected by our solid waste management business. We have steam capacity of 200 tonnes per hour (in operation and under development) through our energy-from-waste facilities on Jurong Island. Click here to see our energy-from-waste value chain.

  • The Sembcorp Woodchip Boiler Plant produces renewable energy from woodchips derived from waste wood.
  • Sembcorp's Energy-from-Waste (EfW) plant will be the first facility in Singapore to use industrial and commercial waste as fuel to produce steam. It will be fuelled by around 1,150 tonnes per day of waste, which is roughly 14% of the total tonnage of waste bound for incineration in Singapore per day.
  • In these plants, bottom ash and fly ash are separated to enable future recycling.
  • These plants provide our customers an economical sustainable source of energy.
  • With both facilities, one-third of our existing customers' steam demand will be fulfilled using alternative fuel.

Additionally, Sembcorp recycles biogas generated by our industrial wastewater treatment processes to produce steam in our boilers.
