NEA’S DIRECT EMISSIONS FALL 20% ON SCALE-DOWN OF TUAS INCINERATION PLANT OPERATI

THE National Environment Agency (NEA) , the government agency overseeing Singapore’s waste incineration, has reported a 20 per cent drop in its direct carbon emissions – also known as Scope 1 emissions – for its 2021 fiscal year ended Mar 31. The savings could be attributed to the scaling down of operations at the 1986-built Tuas Incineration Plant, NEA said as it released its latest integrated sustainability report on Wednesday (Sep 28). Tuas Incineration Plant ceased operations in February, following the commissioning of a new plant called TuasOne from December 2021.  TuasOne, which is equipped to incinerate 3,600 tonnes of waste, is designed with higher heat recovery from waste incineration and higher electrical power generation efficiency. The waste-to-energy plant can generate 120 MW of electricity a day, sufficient to power about 240,000 4-room Housing Board flats.   https://www.businesstimes.com.sg/government-economy/neas-direct-emissions-fall-20-on-scale-down-of-tuas-incineration-plant-operations   (ICE SINGAPORE)
