The Jurong Island Symbiosis and Circularity Scan project has kicked off with a sharing session attended by Jurong Island companies and key government agencies.
Held at Jurong Town Hall, more than 100 CEOs, CTOs and experts from more than 40 organisations were present to learn more about the background and approach of the project.
The study, for which JTC has contracted Witteveen+Bos and sub consultant Metabolic, seeks to map the current water, energy, and waste flows on Jurong Island so as to identify potential synergies between companies to reduce waste, water, and energy use at the system-level. The aim is to achieve better resource optimization on Jurong Island as a whole that will bring about environmental and economic gains for companies.
This Symbiosis and Circularity Scan is the first step to work towards positioning Jurong Island as an economically and environmentally sustainable chemicals park. The project will be conducted in 2019 with preliminary recommendations targeted to be ready by mid-2019 and final recommendations by early 2020.
