Singapore-based waste management company 800 Super has opened a new integrated energy and resource recovery facility in Tuas South, an industrial area within the city-state. According to a report by The Straits Times, the new $130 million (€86.2 million) facility is the size of three football pitches and houses a biomass plant, a sludge treatment facility and an industrial laundry.
The biomass plant generates two million kilowatt-hours of electricity every month, enough energy to power around 5,000 four-room HDB flats (public housing in Singapore) every month. Part of the electricity generated will be used to power the sludge treatment plant.
Executive chairman of 800 Super, Lee Koh Yong, told The Straits Times: “We are constantly seeking opportunities to strengthen our value proposition to customers. Both new businesses will be housed here in this integrated facility and powered by both the electricity generated from our biomass plant and steam produced by our sludge incinerators.”
According to the report, 800 Super will soon enter the animal feed processing sector, and provide heating services for third-party ISO tank containers. The company will convert wet spent grains such as malt and soya beans into animal feed ingredients. Steam from the sludge incinerators will be used to heat-dry and sterilise the grains.
