Singapore: Water Treatment & Wastewater Recycling Systems Email
Written by Katja Rauhala  

The market in Singapore is ripe for new and innovative water treatment and wastewater recycling systems as it continues its effort to achieve water independence. Singapore is a small country of only 4.6 million people with limited water resources. The country imports approximately 52% of its water from Malaysia. However, two water agreements with its neighbor are due to expire in 2011 and 2061.

There is concern about Singapore's future water security, and to meet its water challenges, the island city-state has invested heavily in research and technology over the last four decades and has also developed world-class capabilities in total water management.

Singapore is becoming more self-sufficient due to development of major national water projects such as NEWater (recycled water), the Deep Tunnel Sewerage System (DTSS), desalination and rainfall storage at the Marina Barrage. The result is a thriving water industry with more than 50 international and local companies active in the Singapore market. Singapore’s strategic location in Asia has also attracted major global players to use the country as a launching pad to expand into the region as well as a test-bed for new water technologies.
