Singapore energy and chemicals park focuses on carbon capture and sustainability
Singapore’s Economic Development Board (EDB) has released plans by the government to transform Jurong Island into a sustainable energy and chemicals (E&C) park. The report outlines Singapore’s aspirations to increase its output of sustainable products four-fold from 2019 levels to achieve more than 6mn t/y of carbon abatement by 2050 using low-carbon solutions.
In order to reach the long-term goals, the EDB aims to increase the output of sustainable products by 1.5 times from 2019 levels by 2030 on its Jurong Island oil refinery hub. It wants to ensure that the refineries and crackers in Singapore are in the top quartile of the world in terms of energy efficiency, while realising at least 2mn tonnes of carbon capture potential by 2030.
The Singapore Agency for Science, Technology and Research, EDB and JTC are working together to study the potential of a carbon capture and utilisation test-bed facility on Jurong Island – the CCU translational testbed, to examine the latest technologies for modularisation and digitalisation.
