Arising from the Environmental Services Industry Transformation Map (ES ITM) launched on 11 December 2017, the National Environment Agency (NEA) and SPRING Singapore have jointly launched an innovation call to encourage greater use of technology and automation to increase the overall productivity in the cleaning and waste management industry.
The purpose of this innovation call is to evaluate and test-bed suitable technologies that can improve the efficiency of both NEA and industry operations related to cleaning and waste management, and support local Small and Medium Enterprises (SMEs)/start-ups in developing competitive technologies for application in the Environmental Services sector.
Interested qualifying parties are invited to submit proposals that can address the four problem statements:
[A] To develop a safe, efficient and cost effective kitchen exhaust duct cleaning solution
[B] To develop a self-cleaning toilet to enhance productivity of cleaners and improve toilet cleanliness for users
Waste Management Industry:
[C] To reduce the physical strain of the work crew in waste collection operation
[D] To develop a cost-effective and efficient on-site non-domestic mixed waste treatment system
