Bringing total water solutions to you

As a global leader in total water solutions, Sembcorp’s water capabilities help conserve valuable water resources. Leveraging on our specialised capabilities, we are able to treat multiple streams of complex high concentration industrial wastewater. We are also the first facility in Singapore to reclaim water from industrial and municipal wastewater effluent.

Sembcorp’s Total Water and Wastewater Management Capabilities

Sembcorp Energy Singapore

Our specialised capabilities in industrial wastewater treatment
allow us to treat:

Multiple streams of complex industrial wastewater

All types of wastewater directly from source – no pre-treatment required

Wastewater of different profiles using membrane separation and biological treatment efficiency and productivity

Centralised closed loop industrial wastewater management

For over two decades, we have consistently delivered a full spectrum of water management solutions for leading petroleum, petrochemical and specialty chemicals customers on Jurong Island, Singapore’s energy and chemicals hub.

Our ability to integrate water supply, wastewater treatment and water reclamation into a closed loop enables our customers to enjoy cost savings improvements while achieving their sustainability targets in water resources management.

Water reclamation

Pioneering the commercial reclamation of water from treated municipal and industrial wastewater effluent in Singapore, we transformed it into high-purity water for power and steam generation, as well as for municipal and other industrial uses.

We were awarded the project to Design-Build-Own-Operate (DBOO) one of the world’s largest water reclamation plants – the Sembcorp NEWater Plant in Singapore, for 25 years under the Public-Private Partnership initiative in 2008.
