Listed as one of the “water-stressed nations in the world”, Singapore struggled with scarcity of water in its early years. Its dependence on Malaysia for the import of raw water led the country to invest heavily into R&D in the water and wastewater sector. Today, it has built up a thriving water ecosystem supported by more than 20 public and private R&D centers, and carries out some of the most advanced and innovative water research across the whole water cycle. Singapore's ‘Global Hydro-hub’ consists of about 180 water industry companies, which correspond to the entire value chain of the water industry ranging from upstream components, equipment OEMs, system integrators to downstream players and project developers taking into account design, operation and R&D as well.
Leveraging on technologies and best management practices, Singapore is actively pursuing new technologies and processes to ensure security of supply to meet the ever-growing demands of its population and industry. It positions itself as a ‘Living Laboratory’, by allowing local and foreign companies to test bed their technologies using the country’s state-of-the-art national infrastructure, such as its water reclamation plants. This is to facilitate the development, testing and commercialisation of innovative solutions.
