Waste management forum CESS closes with S$3.5b of projects
THE third edition of the CleanEnviro Summit Singapore 2016 closed with over S$3.5 billion worth of projects and deals.
CESS is a global platform to develop environmental solutions for rapidly growing cities. It concluded on Thursday with over S$3.04 billion worth of projects announced and S$470 million worth of business deals discussed.
The event also facilitated knowledge exchanges aimed at driving sustainability through innovation, and developing a skilled industry.
Key among the projects announced is the S$3 billion Integrated Waste Management Facility, co-located with the Tuas Water Reclamation Plant, which will transform the way solid waste and used water will be managed in land-scarce Singapore to meet Singapore's future waste management needs.
The expo floors were filled with exhibitors from 57 countries and regions, including new country pavilions such as the EU Business Avenues, Turkey, Spain and Scotland, and more than 1,000 international and local companies.
The event was integrated with the World Cities Summit (WCS) and Singapore International Water Week (SIWW).
More than 21,000 visitors and participants from 115 countries, including ministers, government officials, industry leaders, academics and representatives from international organisations, attended.
CESS also had an inaugural Innovation Pitch which was aimed at accelerating commercialisation of exciting new ideas and innovations by the industry's young talent pool.
Ten innovators were given a platform to showcase their new technologies to over 100 guests, among whom were venture capitalists.
The next edition of CleanEnviro Summit Singapore will be held from July 8-12, 2018 at the Sands Expo and Convention Centre, Marina Bay Sands in Singapore.
