Committee of Supply 2019 debate, Day 6: Masagos Zulkifli on incineration ash, NEWSand, for construction use

(Updated: )

“Today, we already have NEWater. We are working on creating NEWSand,” said Minister for the Environment and Water Resources Masagos Zulkifli. NEWSand is incineration ash and it could be turned into construction materials to build roads, instead of landfilling it. The National Environment Agency is looking to start field trials next year. Mr Masagos said draft standards on how treated ash can be used have been developed. He announced this in Parliament on Thursday (Mar 7), when he outlined his ministry’s ambitious plans in water, waste and food to build a sustainable Singapore.
